A terrific spot for bird watching! The overlook is free, a small fee to visit the park at the end of the peninsula where the lighthouse sits

Beautiful backdrop of scenery with historic lighthouse and bird sanctuary. Paths are well cared for, easy walk. Drive slow through a residential neighborhood leading to the Lighthouse entrance. Eateries nearby in Kilauea. A nice day trip for the casual traveler.

In addition to the lighthouse, the area is a wildlife refuge offering an educational experience, as well as amazing views.

A must-see. The best place to go to see all the native seabirds. There is often a school of dolphins playing in the bay to the left of the lighthouse. Fabulous scenery.

The Kilauea Lighthouse just celebrated it's 100th anniversary and was totally renovated for the occasion. It contains the largest clamshell lens in the world. It's also a bird sanctuary, so you'll see some great sea birds. In the winter it's a great place to whale watch. Turn left at the Stone Church in Kilauea and it's about 1.5 miles. The road ends at the lighthouse.

Kilauea Lighthouse is in the adjacent historic sugar plantation town of Kilauea. The light house occupies the northern most point of the Hawaiian Islands. It is a 7 mile drive to see hundreds of sea birds in flight and a panoramic view of the coastline and whale watching during the winter months.

Super view from this location! Small entrance (parking) fee, but worth it to get those really great coastal photos. Lots of birds in this sanctuary, plus whales migrating (in season).

Great bird life (blue footed boobies) and great viewing platform to see the Humpback whales. Craft and souvenir markets nearby.

Very neat spot to look out and see whales migrating if you happen to be in Kauai during the right time of the year.

Take a drive up the coast to Princeville, but make sure you stop and see the Kilauea Lighthouse along the way!

A beautiful landmark on Kauai. The lighthouse is easily seen from the air if you take a helicopter tour or hang gliding flight.

A nice view, and a good historic place. It's an interesting place with lots of information and history. The kids were wishing they had some bird food or something more interactive to do.

Part of a national wildlife refuge, Kilauea Lighthouse is a great scenic vista point for watching all kinds of migratory and native bird life, and sometimes spotting whales in winter. Step inside the bottom of the lighthouse to see some science displays about Hawaii's flora and fauna, including endangered species.

Just a few miles down the road on the edge of the ocean past the quaint former plantation town of Kilauea. Well worth a visit.

Another MUST SEE as the views from the lighthouse are incredible. And.....make another stop after seeing the lighthouse. After exiting and turning onto the highway towards Princeville take the NEXT/First right turn and just follow your nose until the road winds around and takes you to Kalihiwai Beach! It is one of the most beautiful beaches on Kauai and most tourists NEVER find it.
