Kilauea Lighthouse Village faces the road to the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and Lighthouse (about one mile away). The Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse is one of Kauai’s top attractions that welcomes over 500,000 visitors annually.
Situated on the northernmost tip of Kauai, the Lighthouse offers visitors breathtaking overlook views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding cliffs. The Classical Revival Lighthouse (commissioned in 1913) is on the National Register of Historic Places. Standing 52 feet high, tour guides escort visitors up the tower, tell historical stories, and show off the panoramic views of Kauai’s stunning coastline. The Lighthouse Point is a birder’s paradise with thousands of migratory seabirds nesting and foraging nearby. Spinner dolphins, humpback whales, monk seals and green sea turtles can also be spotted swimming just off the Point on any given day.
The Lighthouse is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except on major federal holidays.
