Kilauea Lighthouse

Uploaded: July 25, 2012 20:33:13


Perched at the northernmost tip of Kauai, the 52-foot Kilauea Lighthouse was built in 1913 as a beacon for traveling ships. Although its light was turned off in the 1970s and has been replaced by an automatic beacon, it still serves as one of the island's most frequented attractions.

This is also the location of the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, a sanctuary for seabirds. Signage throughout the refuge identifies the area's bird species, including frigates, shearwaters, boobies and Laysan albatrosses nesting on the property.

*NOTE* The lighthouse is undergoing extensive renovations and will be restored to its glory in May 2013.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 5.00, ExposureTime: 1/500 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 105.00 mm, Model: NIKON D800
