Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is a stunning spot for views and wildlife watching. Bring your binoculars, or borrow some from the refuge to fully enjoy this bird-watching paradise. The refuge is home to some of the largest populations of nesting seabirds in Hawaii, including the endangered nene. Walk to the point and the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Lighthouse which was built in 1913. Tours of the lighthouse are offered Wednesday and Saturday. Knowledgeable docents share information about the history and wildlife conservation efforts, and you can walk up steep, narrow steps to the top. There is a day-use fee or use your America the Beautiful Pass. The Refuge is open Tuesday to Saturday.
