The Hanalei Pier offers a truly iconic view of the sea and mountains coming together in a symphony of color and grandeur. The sunsets are magnificent and the beach large and relatively uncrowded.

Beautiful views from an iconic spot. The pier is a nice spot to watch a sunset and end your day on Kauai. Don't miss it.

Nice beach but a little crowded. Cars also drive/park on beach. Pier is a nice photo op and offers great view of "Bali Hai". Get there early of you want a good spot on the beach.

There were lots of local teens and kids jumping off the pier. It was beautiful. Water was refreshing. I would only recommend jumping off when you see locals doing it. I'm sure the under tow can be harsh at times.

We were here for sunset. It was a magical place. The local fishermen were setting up, people were everywhere. A must see.

Ah not sure this is worth getting out to look at the pier but it might be to look at the bay. Enjoy it if you get near it.

The Hanalei Pier is a must. The beach is quiet and beautiful, and you have a clear shot of Bali Hai in the background. Love it!

Great place to take photos of Hanalei Bay and the surrounding area. This pier was rebuilt and is the location of the original "South Pacific"

The pier is along the beach and is worth a walk. Nothing special but OK for viewing back to the beach. When we were there the surfers were a long ways away.
