Road is washed out due to hurricane but can still get to the pier. Great pictures of the bay! Lots of surfers to watch.

Perhaps there was a reason for the pier in the past, but it is now defunct and not even pretty. It is at the end of the beach with the least people or foot traffic.

The pier was hard to get on because I think the entrance was washed away with the recent rain storm and flooding. It was fine but I’m guessing it was better before the flooding.

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)
