General Information

Description - This state-administered public fishing pier lies on Hanama'ulu Bay at the mouth of the Hanamaulu Stream.

Attractions - This site occupies a cement pier with a wooden walkway where the Hanama'ulu Stream meets the Pacific Ocean. Other than the pier, no developed facilities are available at this site.

Recreation - This pier is an excellent place for pole fishing and crab netting. The site also offers opportunities for viewing the scenery of Hanama'ulu Bay. Hanama'ulu Bay is a Marine Protected Area of Hawai'i and therefore strict regulations on spear fishing, net fishing and crab netting apply to the area.

Climate - The climate on Kauai varies more with the terrain than the seasons. Generally, the coastal temperature changes little throughout the year with an annual average of 74 degrees F. The higher elevations of the interior of the island includes the wettest place on earth, Mt. Waialeale. This region averages higher than 4,000 feet and receives nearly 500 inches of rain. If your planning to camp in the higher elevations of Kauai, I recommend layers and rain gear. Temperatures drop four degrees F with every 1,000 feet gained in elevation.

Location - Ahukini pier is located on the eastern shore of Kauai. It lies east of Hanama'ulu where the Hanamaulu Stream meets the Pacific Ocean. It can be accessed from the end of Ahukini Road (Highway 570) off Kuhio Highway (Highway 56), Lihu'e.

Report: Great place to scuba dive! Water entry can be a little tricky. You have to walk over a few rocks. take your time and no problem. Current was light and I was told only to dive it when the winds are calm. To get here just follow the signs to the airport. As you enter the airport at the traffic light, follow the first fork in the road to the left. Pey attention it comes up quick! After you have negotiated the fork just keeo going straight for approx. 2 miles. You will pass by the helipads for all the helicopter companies on your left. Go straight till it ends. Enter he water next to th rock jetty. Water is a little murky at first. Go around the other side of the jetty and enjoy! Turtles,fish,lobster(at night) and lots of stuff to explore. During WWII a ship dumped some of its ordnance into the ocean here. You may come across some old shells and ammo. Leave them alone they are live and real old. Pretty cool to see though. 10-45 foot depths. Good place to fish on the left by the old pier. I always see locals fishing. No bathrooms or benches to enjoy a good lunch. I do not know why. State Park and all.
