Nothing fancy here, just an amazing vantage point from which to watch the seabirds. It is well run and maintained. The small parking area outside the entrance is a fine place to view the birds, but it is worth the money to drive in to...More

Kilauea Point is the northernmost point of Hawaii islands. The setting here with the nice old lighthouse and the impressive rocky bay is almost too perfect. The sea was pretty rough which added the cherry on top and made this total movie scene material. Great...More

Nice stop to see the local shoreline landmarks, the lighthouse, and the large variety of birds. In the winter months before March this is a great place to see whales. Great coastal views!

We visited the Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge today. What a lovely spot. Breathtaking views over the ocean and craggy mountain covered with birds. Nene's all over (endangered, just wandering around happily), albatrosses and so many other large and small birds. Nice walk up to the...More

The Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is co-located with a beautiful and historic lighthouse. It is a bird-lovers haven. So spectacular seeing the albatross, frigatebirds etc. flying right past your eyes. We also saw shearwater chicks in their nests right near the car park.

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
