Well maintained pier. We snorkeled there on both sides of the pier.. Beach was sandy. Lots of restaurants and shops near by. We walked down to here almost daily.

We explored this pier a number of times and almost every time we spotted a turtle in the clear blue water. Sometimes you could see lots of fish also....."dry snorkelling" so to speak.

Kailua Pier is the start of the Ironman each year in October, and you will find swimmers willing to chat about how they practice swimming this bay every morning. Local children learn how to swim, Kayak and paddle board every afternoon after school as their family watches. It is also the where the cruise ships ferry people in to see... More

The pier was right outside our hotel at King Kamehaha so, of course, we found it to be very convenient. Many tours leave from the pier and it is a great place to shop and eat In the area before and after your tour.

We took a tour from the Pier. Another day we noticed some people snorkelling on the north side of the pier. They said it was pretty good snorkelling. We stood on the edge of the pier and looked down into the clear water. The non-snorkeler in our group was happy to see quite a few fish very clearly without getting... More

During our recent five-night stay in Kona we took two Body Glove cruises that left from Kailua Pier. Kailua Pier has been a hub of local ocean activity since 1918. Although most fishing boats now use Honokohau Harbor, charters and cruises still launch from this facility, and recreational, shopping and dining opportunities abound. One enduring feature of Kailua Pier is... More
