Kilaueaa Lighthouse, Kauai

 

Perched at the northernmost tip of the Hawaiian Islands, the 52-foot Kilauea Lighthouse was built in 1913 as a beacon for traveling ships.

The view off the rugged northern coastline makes this the perfect vantage point for photos. Admission is free. This is also the location of the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, a sanctuary for Hawaii's unique seabirds.

Directions: Follow Kuhio Highway (HI-56) north from Lihue, turn right on Kolo Road, then turn left and take the Kilauea road to the gate of Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. It’s roughly a 45-minute drive from Lihue.
