From the pier you can take pictures of beautiful beach, majestic mountains, and waterfalls. It is also a favorite place to swim. Not many places on earth you can say that. Parking is at a premium.

The views from the pier are beautiful. This is a locals hang out too. Jumping from the pier is very popular. The beach is really nice. This is a must see!

At 6 in the morning there is no one on the beach & the water is calm. Perfect time for a swim if you don't want to bump into anyone.

It was breathtaking to see the World Reknowned Hokulea Ships docked at the Hanalei Pier! The views of Hanalei with a stunning backdrop of Hihimanu, Namolokama, and Mamalahoa Mountains and Bali Hai from the Pier are gorgeous. Locals and tourists enjoy the pier and fishing.

This place is pure magic, especially during sunset and sunrise. All you need is to walk on this pier and look around to realize you truly are surrounded by magic. I will always remember this place.

Had a blast swimming in the bay, my daughter took surfing lessons and so much fun. The bay is beautiful, water was perfect, pretty sailboats hanging in view. Nice way to spend the morning or whole day. Picnic foods and lots of drinking water to bring for the perfect time. Bring a beach umbrella and hat.

If your near the north shore stop and park and take a walk out on the pier. The views are awesome and it's a great picture spot.

I've visited many areas...and as I read previous reviews of violence against certain people.. it's true. I wanted to watch the sunset but noticed as we walked onto the pier the look of ... well, irritation, hatred, whatever.. by 4 men under 30 .. We left, ( were protected ) but left without incident before sun went down.. a shame..... More

We went there looking for a beach to hang out on, and ended up leaving because the waves were really flat. My kids might have enjoyed jumping from the pier, but I found it very confusing that some kids were jumping off right by the sign that said "warning - dangerous - not deep enough for jumping - don't jump."...
