Kailua Pier

Kaahumanu Place, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, 96740

The basics

West-facing, Kailua Pier is a great place to grab a Hawaiian sunset. Many of Kailua-Kona’s restaurants, shops, and bars can also be found right here alongside historical gems like Hulihee Palace—so when you come here, make a day of it.

Even beyond outfitters, views, and history, this area offers some of Kona’s most accessible snorkeling and diving. You can access a small coral reef right off the shore, filling the waters with tropical creatures. If you do snorkel here, go with a buddy, and rent a dive flag before heading out to avoid trouble with boats.

When to get there

If you’re here for a scheduled adventure, be sure to arrive early to find parking, locate your destination, and mill around; you might want to spend a few minutes checking out Kamakahonu National Historic Landmark, the thatched residence of King Kamehameha I. Get here after 4pm and you might spot people weighing their massive catches of the day.
