The Hanalei Pier is a steel-reinforced concrete finger pier which extends from the beach out into Hanalei Bay. The pier, when built, had a wooden deck. It was replaced in 1922 with a concrete deck. The pier is 340 feet long and has a shed at its terminus. The shed is a frame structure with a corrugated iron gable roof. Hanalei Pier is a good example of a typical finger pier constructed in the 1920s in Hawaii, and is important for its associations with transportation history in Hawaii. It is also one of the last remaining vestiges of the rice industry in Hanalei. The pier was used seasonally, primarily to transport rice from Hanalei to Honolulu.
