  Kilauea Lighthouse, Kauai
by karenincalifornia

The Kilauea ("Rising smoke cloud") lighthouse sits on top of a lava flow on the north shore of Kauai. Built in 1913 with a beautiful clamshell lens, it stands 52 feet high and operated until 1976.

Today, a bird sanctuary has been preserved next to the lighthouse. To help you out with your birding activities, an exhibit with lots of interesting information about the local birds has been placed around the lighthouse on the bluffs.
