Description
The pier at Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii. Hanalei Pier is located at the eastern end of Weke Road near the Hanalei rivermouth. Originally built in 1892 to serve the region’s thriving rice industry, the pier was rebuilt in 1912 and again after Hurricane ‘Iniki damaged the structure in 1992. Today the pier is a popular place to fish, swim, and enjoy views of the bay’s sparkling blue waters and the towering mountains rising up behind Hanalei town. On the east side of Hanalei Pier is Black Pot Beach Park, named after a big iron pot that was used to cook fish caught during a hukilau, a traditional fishing practice in which everyone cooperates to spot, net, and gather fish. The pier was featured in the 1957 classic film "South Pacific". http://memory.loc.gov/pnp/habshaer/hi/hi0200/hi0207/data/hi0207.pdf http://www.hawaiianencyclopedia.com/hanalei-history.asp #Hanalei #Hawaii #Kauai #pier #South_Pacific
