This pier has a lot going on from bike rentals, diving, tour boats, beach and swimming and a beautiful view of Ali'i Drive. Nice place to hang out.

Kona pier offers a place to put your slippers and towel and states to get down into the beach. It also is a dock where night and day sailing takes place. I like it the best for paddle boarding.

Took a local cruise from here and interesting to know that it is the entrance to the swim portion of the iron man. Water so clean you can see the reef and sea life.

This is the place to go if you just want to swim and not fight currents! There are orange buoys marking the Iron man course. Swim here safely for hours.

The cruise ship anchored off shore. We took a tender from the cruise ship to the Kona Pier. There are several hotels, restaurants and stores within walking distance up hill. Target and Walmart provides separate shuttles to their location for free. The Target shuttle goes to a large shopping center with many stores in the area. There is a Starbucks... More
