Good and easy access into the ocean, and very popular, especially with locals. You'll see the same people here over and over. Best part is that just across the pier is another beach which was originally King Kameahmeah's canoe landing, so of course the least...More

Stroll down the pier and see some beautiful fish swimming by. If you're brave, take a little swim along the Ironman swimming route or snorkle to the side - just don't touch the sea urchins, as there are plenty to admire.

Kona style laid back feet up spot. Hawaiian tempo and spot to watch the day go by. Definitely a must go to spot.

I always enjoy an evening walk to check out whats going on on the Kona Pier. Fishing, snorkeling, boat watching, and maybe enjoying the distant luau at the hotel. limited parking and not for everyone.

This is a glimpse into Hawaii's fun. Go down the pier, jump off of it! Perfect little cove for stand up paddle boarding or ocean kayaking.
