This is a must place to stop on Kauai. There are lots of Nene geese and many different types of seabirds. The lighthouse have great views of the ocean. Be aware of it operating hours

For us this was a must see site, as we try to visit lighthouses wherever we travel. This is the first one, however, to offer such a detailed and information filled tour as we slowly climb only three filghts of stairs (about 50 in total)....More

The light house besides offering the most beautiful view is home to many animals, whether a NeNe is passing by or a red footed booby is nesting, it is always amazing. We did visit the lighthouse one visit and saw so many whales it was...More
