Beautiful view, but crowded.

Interesting area. Lots of chickens roamed around in the grassy areas. Came from the ship without any plans and just wandered around

It is used for tour boats and for cruise shop to off- and pick up visitors to Kona. It sits out into Anacho'omalu Bay at the water side of the Marriott Courtyard.

A walk along the pier is just a relaxing, refreshing experience. The pier is wide, very solid (concrete) and has been recently resurfaced. It's nice morning, afternoon, or evening. We avoid it when there is a canoe race or other festivity, as it becomes very crowded and congested. But, most of the time, it a great laid-back, quiet experience.

Accessible location to beach/ piers, stores/ shopping, restaurants, public transit, and a $2 Kona Trolley that takes youbto several beaches and resorts within reach. There's lots of equipment rentals. Lovely atmosphere. Recommended for singles or families.

We saw a number of open water swimmers training for the ironman competition. Source of a number of tours -- submarine, small boats, dinner cruises etc. Good place to look at the shoreline and the village.

Provides a place to walk out and get a good view back at the best part of town, the heritage site, and the seawall. Also, you might get to see some swimmers training, some interesting boats, and a ferry arrival.

My husband is a swimmer and wanted to do an open water swim where they hold the swim portion of the Ironman. I was able to watch him (for a while until he got too tiny) from the pier and the walking area next to the water.

wanted to stop but in this small town, parking is very limited. after 20 minutes driving around for a place to park legally, we gave up. Very, very congested area with all the shops and restaurants but glad we found the Kona Brewery for best pizza!

The pier is home to launches of local adventures like Rocking H Jet skis and the like. At the beach you can swim, paddle board, snorkel, fish and enjoy the surroundings. It is walking distance to many other attractions and amenities. Overall, a great place to visit
