The view is amazing right when you walk up to the pier. We saw turtles swimming from the pier too. I would say it is a must see.

We have been coming to Hanalei for years, but did not realize there was a pier, until I saw it listed on TripAdvisor. The Views from the pier are magnificent. There were people, both adults and kids pumping from the pier into the water (pier is not far from the water and the water is not very deep). The beach... More

The Pier is just a lovely place to kick back and relax. To your right are surfers learning their moves in the gentle waves, and... More

Great place for boogie boarding and general swimming. Had shower and bathrooms. Pier is fun to walk on. Saw many children jumping from it. No snorkeling, but great for a fun beach day. Watch toddlers carefully due to shore breaks.

A must see for all visitors to Kauai and the Northshore. Bring your camera to capture the magnificent views of the pier, the surrounding mountains, water falls, beach, etc.

The pier was rebuilt after the hurricane. Instead of wood, it is now metal. But the beauty of the Bay and the surrounding mountains remains. Well worth a visit--and a swim.
