Ahukini Recreational Pier State Park is found on Kauai's Southeast shore. If your visit to Hawaii includes plans for fishing, you should check out what it has to offer. It's a cement pier with a wooden walkway found at the mouth of the Hanamaulu Stream. The pier has been rated as a great place for those who enjoy various types of pier fishing. Pole fishing, crab netting and ocean pier fishing are permitted there. The surrounding scenery is beautiful, which makes it an interesting sightseeing spot as well.
Entry is free and the pier is open to visitors every day during daylight hours. The Ahukini Recreational Pier State Park is located close to the Lihue Airport. If you're waiting for friends to arrive at the airport and got a bit of time to spare, you can make a quick visit just to enjoy the area and view, even if you're not fishing. For those fond of wildlife, it's also a good place for whale watching. If you're lucky, you may even get to see monk seals or sea turtles. This allows you to take some unique photos that you will want to share with all your friends and family.
