The views of, and from, this Light House are amazing. It's just a short drive off the highway and worth the 10 minutes to see it. The waters off the coast here are super deep turquoise blue with white waves crashing on the rocks. Such an amazing photo opp! A must see.

This lighthouse is part of the bird refuge park. There are a lot of special birds here and it was great to see they were so abundant.

Great views but at a cost of $5 a person (over 16) it can add up if you have a group of you. The parking was limited but we managed to get a spot and walk up to the lighthouse easily.

The Kilauea Point Lighthouse and National Wildlife Refuge are adjoining properties and are best appreciated together. You can take in the history of the lighthouse and see beautiful birds in flight at the same time. The coastal views from the lighthouse point are beautiful. From the lighthouse you can see several endangered bird nesting areas and they have binoculars you... More

I saw the sign to the Kilauea Lighthouse on my way north and, on the spur of the moment, I decided to go see it. I'm not a big lighthouse fan but I have a friend who has dragged me to a lot of them, so I thought I would go and take a picture of it just to send... More

If your on your way to the north part of the island, it's a great quick stop. It is beautiful, unfortunately the refuge was closed the day we visited. There are some nice shops along the path to stop and visit.

Our family of 5 (grandma, 2 kids, my husband and I) visited the Kilauea Lighthouse upon recommendation of a family friend. We were so happy we made the stop. Do be mindful of the hours and days of the week they offer tours of the lighthouse. We weren't, but still had a great time. We arrived at 3pm and it... More

The lighthouse is on a point with a beautiful view of the water and nearby bird sanctuary. In the town of Kilauea off Kolo Road. The view is just amazing!!!!!

If you are driving to the north shore of Kauai make a quick trip off the main highway to Kilauea Lighthouse. The beautiful blue Pacific with views of the waves crashing against the rocky coast are amazing. Best to go Tuesday - Saturday when you can walk out to the lighthouse on the point. Access to the point is closed... More
