Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe this spot at sunset! Put this on your "must see" list but go early to get a parking spot!

Parking is very tight here. The beach and pier are very crowded. Nice view from the pier and lots of people fishing. A small area of the pier seems to be for kids to jump into the water, even though the sign says no jumping.

Go see it, walk along it, jump off it. Soak in the views. Go paddle boarding. Swim. Sit on the beach. Smile. I spent the whole time just grateful that I could be in such a beautiful place.

Worth the drive, the Hanalei Pier offers beautiful scenery. There are no waves and not too many people swimming, paddle boarding, and jumping off the shaded pier.

A must see Pier with so much island history. Locals are drawn to this gathering spot the beach to the left of Pier is wide open the right beach is smaller with more shade and car access right on beach

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)
