It didn’t seem possible Kauai could hold any more gorgeous sights – until we found the Kilauea Point Lighthouse.
As a National Wildlife Refuge, this point of land provides a safe haven for seabirds like the red-footed booby (I REALLY wanted a picture of one of those!), the Wedge-Tailed Shearwater, the Laysan Albatross, and the Magnificent Frigate Bird.
We got a special treat when a fuzzy baby Shearwater woke up in his burrow.
The Kilauea lighthouse was completed in 1913 and its Frensel lens eventually carried a candlepower of over 2,500,000! The lens assembly weighs over four and a half tons and the light produced could be seen as far as 90 miles away.
The views from the cliffs are magnificent! This is a definite “must see” if you visit Kauai.
