As seen on Google Earth
The Waikāne Pier appeared in episode 2x23 "Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1" as the Pala Ferry terminal, seen at the end of the episode when Michael was given a boat by the Others and Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Hurley were taken into their custody. The scene returned in episode 3x02 "The Glass Ballerina" as Jin, Sayid, and Sun arrived in the Elizabeth and attempted to lure the Others into a trap.
Waikāne Pier is located in O'ahu in the Kaneohe and Kualoa Bays. It is not open to the public, as it is on private land.
The pier is just over 600 feet long, from end to end.
The pier points almost exactly eastward, into the bay.
Waikāne Pier appears in the movie 50 First Dates, as well as Fantasy Island and several other productions.
The Pala Ferry sign is not on the pier normally.
"China Man's Hat", an island and hat shaped formation just off the coast of Oahu, is visible from the Pier normally, as it is only 1.5 miles across the bay. In LOST, the formation is not shown on panoramic views of the coastline, but is briefly visible in the background only during the close-up of the Others' Boat as Michael pilots it away.
