The pier and the beach seems to have been a great place to visit, however seems that the time and weather (hurricanes) have done damage to the area. From the pier you can see several houses that are doomed due the hurricanes, and looks like...More

Visited here about 12 years ago and the pier was an iconic feature of Hanalei Bay, now the spring rains have nearly brought this pier down. Very sad. Sad for the whole community though and the challenge facing the people of Hanalei.

Yes! Just grab a fishing license! (I am sure you could get away with not getting one but better safe than sorry because there are hefty fines for not having camping/fishing licenses on Kauai)
