Enjoyed our visit even in crappy weather. Wish we had brought our lunch. We could have sat at picnic tables on the end of the pier to eat.

Come to the beach next to the pier and enjoy the swimming and surfing... stay for the magnificent sunset! Bring your chairs and your coolers and don’t forget your camera. Plenty of parking that is free.

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)
