We visited this site as it had been the first stop during our honeymoon many years ago. This time my parents and our kids joined us. Beautiful views, native plants and birds made this a pleasant educational stop. Artwork by talented Hawaiian artist, Patrick Ching grace the site. Descriptive plaques inform visitors about the unique flora and fauna surrounding the site. My highlights were seeing a Hawaiian monk seal basking in the bay below the lighthouse, seeing my son find nesting burrows in the landscape (since there are no mongoose on Kauai to prey on nesting birds), and engaging my children different learning activities in the visitor center. We purchased books and other educational materials to take home and remind us of our trip.

My husband I enjoyed visiting the wildlife refuge and lighthouse. It was amazing to see all of the birds flying around and sitting on the hillside up from the waves crashing. A very beautiful site!

We turned up to make a quick visit and stayed for hours! The bird-watching is excellent and the views are great. Volunteer wardens give really good species advice.We even saw a few of the 'end of season' whales off the headland.
Anyone interested in wildlife shouldn't miss this refuge

This is a lovely area and if you are a birder, you will be thrilled. There is a wide variety of birds here and they are plentiful...you'll be sure to see something new.

Drive from the lookout point down the hill to the parking area...there are free binoculars in the museum at the base of the lighthouse

We went to Kilauea Point to see the 101 year old lighthouse. It is one of the most beautiful remaining restored lighthouse's left in the USA. It sits on a cliff at the northern most point of Hawaii and have a commanding view of the Pacific ocean. Only come on a Saturday if you want to see inside because that is the only day they have a tour. However the lighthouse is part of a national bird sanctuary where Nene goose wander the grounds, many birds fly around your head and nest on the cliffs around the point. If your a birder, you will stay here for hours. It is an easy drive to the point and only $10.00 to get in.
