We thought this was more like a boardwalk and nice pier but its really just a concrete walk way to a covered overhang. Beach is more full of cars and people getting on boats.

A local recommended that we visit the pier. I'm so glad we stopped by. My husband and kids jumped and jumped and jumped and had a great time. At the day and time we were there, the water was about 11 feet deep at the end so it's not great for diving but it was a great way to spend... More

Our extended family of ten enjoyed a visit to the beautiful Hanalei Pier on July 31, 2016.This is a great destination spot with picturesque mountains surrounding Hanalei Bay. We all walked out on the pier where there was a shelter from the occasional showers that day. The views were amazing. Our kids enjoyed jumping off and swimming around the pier... More

But as far as the beach goes I prefer anini beach in the same vicinty. For me its a local place. But nice for sunset. Though it can get crowded.

Do yourself a favor and spend a little time here. Walk out on the pier and watch the local children enjoying this beautiful bay.

This pier holds a special place in my heart! I love doing back flips and playing games with friends. Great place to grab a bite eat on the pier and then head to the beach to sleep. Bring a towel and maybe a rope to tie on the bottom platform so you don't always have to use the ladder.

Hmmmm, where to start? Let's start with my son doing flips off the pier; both from and back flips. There were a ton of kids, both local and tourists, leaping into the water. The pier goes well out into the bay and allows you views not available from shore. The water is a beautiful blue with easy waves. A great... More

Every where you look is picture perfect. Great for families, friends or a romantic get away for a couple. Don't want to give anyone any ideas but my family and i jump off the the pier. That's what me and my family did but i don't want to recommend it for safety reasons.

such a nice beach, bathrooms not so nice, no food close by to eat on the beach bring your own, parking sometimes a pain but worth the effort

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.
