Be sure to bring your National Park Pass for free entrance but still worth the $5 entrance fee is you don't own one. If you come on a day for a lighthouse tour tickets go fast! There were already gone 30 minutes before hand. Allow...More

I highly recommend this stop at Kilauea Refuge. The easy access and then brilliant views were a pleasant surprise. Beautiful birds and the rugged coastline on all sides.Tips-Bring a camera and it is a short stay ...but unforgettable!

This park is one of our favorite spots to visit on Kauai. The views of the ocean and coastline are spectacular. You will see red footed boobys, shearwaters, Laysan albatross, frigate birds, and tropic birds. On our most recent visit we were delighted to see...More

The lighthouse is amazing!!!! So beautiful a definite must see!!! An easy walk out to it from the parking lot. You have to pay cash to get out to lighthouse but it is only 5.00 and well worth it to see the view.

The coastline around Kilauea Point is truly majestic. With the constant breeze and the crashing surf below, one can't help but feel a bit intimidated by the open ocean beyond.

Cute little scenic spot for pictures, but nothing spectacular, and not a whole lot to see to be honest. It's very small. They do have a lot of signage up with information about the birds which are beautiful. There's also a little building that has...More

They provide free rental binoculars. You can see TONS of animal life. There are many types of sea birds - but also turtles, dolphins, and nene geese. Tours of the inside of the lighthouse are offered on the hour on Saturdays and Wednesdays only -...More

We always come here. You get to see up close many varieties of seabirds that you will never see at home. The volunteers are outstanding, as are the rangers who run the place. Don't rush the visit. Bring sunscreen, shade hats, binoculars and curiosity.

Yes, lighthouses are ALWAYS great attractions. Yes, I have visited fifty lighthouses on both coasts, the Great Lakes (most of the best) and abroad. This one has stunning views. Period. Access to the lens and light are quite limited but it's all about the view......More

Let me change that answer. That is for the Kilauea Lighthouse. The wildlife refuge isn't really a place you go into. It defines an area around the lighthouse. So it is always open to the birds, and you can come anytime... More
