There are some great views of the mountain and, of course, of the bay, from Hanalei Pier.
There is a bit of a beach around Hanalei Pier for sunbathing. Kids were jumping off the pier, having a great time.
Hanalei Pier is a historic landmark in Kauai. In the past, it was a busy working pier used to load and off load sugar and other goods to and from ships. It was worth a brief stop.
