“Beautiful!”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

There is a very nice scenic overlook right before entering the refuge. We stopped and looked and almost passed the refuge by. I'm really glad we didn't. It was beautiful and worth every penny of the $5 or so admission charge. It's not a very long walk around the lighthouse, but it was breathtaking. The views of the coast were great. And more sea birds than we could even try to count. This little one hour stop turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit to Kauai.

“Great views”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

We've done the light house before, and the refuge is always fun. Sunset is beautiful and the variety of birds is astounding.

“Majestic Views and Birds Galore”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

This is a must-stop for anyone on Kauai who'd like to see a beautiful and undisturbed nature place. It is well worth the $5.00 to go to the lighthouse and end of the point. We saw tons of beautiful birds dancing through the air and on to the cliffs. The lighthouse is off-limits for climbing, but still is a beautiful structure. Inside the visitor's center there is a movie which is half on the history of the lighthouse and the other half on all the nature in the area. The movie keeps running so you can sit down at any time and catch it. When signing the visitors' book we saw a few people enjoyed the whales off the point that day; we did not see any whales, seals or turtles. However, the variety of birds and educational knowledge of the staff was unsurpassed. We would highly recommend spending a few hours here.

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

I saw so much wild life. Whales, turtles, Albatros, and lots of other tropical birds. Bring a camera! Close to unique shops, and resturants. Be sure to stop for a local brew at the brew house in town.
