“It’s not much to see but it is a great picture spot.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

The bigger attraction is the entire view. Hanalei Bay Beach was rated the #1 beach in the USA in 2009. It’s a great place to spend an entire day.

“Hmmm A Pier in a Bay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

I am torn on how to rate this. I guess it depends if you've been around the water much in life or not. I have been so know that reading this and this is not meant in any way to take away from the beauty of the bay or beach. There is a different separate review for it. This is strictly about the pier itself.
For the not so exciting point of view, It's a short concrete pier that has a covered area at the end that's a little dirty with weathered warning signs about jumping or diving that a lot of people ignore. There is an old dilapidated picnic bench at the end that appears to have been robbed for firewood.
On the brighter side it does allow for those who would normally not go "out" in the water to get a little different feel for the water and different view of a great bay and beach area. A "Kodak" moment if you will.
So to sum it up, go to the bay for the beauty of it and the beach experience. Walk the pier and enjoy the view. Just don't expect the "pier" to be a life experience.

“my favorite beach and the pier is beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

Everytime in Hanalei weather permitting, we take walks on the bay, and enjoy the views of the ocean, mountains in the background of the pier
