“Sunset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great place to watch the sunset from 5:00 is a good time to arrive and wait it out. Even saw the "green Flash" does not get any better than that. Watch a group of kids practice their outrigger canoeing and listened to their coaches. Was a highlight of the trip.

“Nice, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

The pier seems a little jumbled. Is it open to the public, or isn't it? Can you walk on or through the pier or not? What's on the pier? Every time I go to Kailua I check out the pier simply because it is there. But, I never know what to expect. However, there is a small beach right off Alii and the pier. Also, behind the pier there is a little lagoon and a stand which rents kayaks and paddleboards. This lagoon is a good place to try out paddleboarding--shallow and safe.

“Great starting point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

parking is not so difficult...a starting location for a leisurely walk to town all the way to Lava Java for a cup of coffee and stop at the Alii Drive Market on your way back to your car

“Great photo shoot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Almost all of the ocean cruises are here. Glass bottom, dolphin and whale, snorkling, diving. If an ocean liner is parked in the distance its an awesome picture experience. Lots of hot woman in bikinis walking around. Must see.

“Spiffed up since last time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This pier provides the only way for most strollers to actually get beyond land into the ocean...since my last visit it has been really cleaned up...perhaps in response to the Cruiseship season in full swing.
