Kawai‘ele Waterbird Sanctuary reviews
Peaceful, out of the way nature preserve with ponds. We saw Ne Ne (native goose) families, Common Moorhen, Hawaiian Stilt, Coot, and Black Tilapia (guarding their pond nests). There are some kiosks..... more »
Stumbled upon this after visiting Kekaha beach. Delightful place to see birds and appreciate all of the work volunteers did to reinstate this natural habitat. more »
My 18 year old son traveled from Virginia. He is a birder and came here twice spending hours photographing. I found the place fun and a nice place to walk. more »
If you enjoy birding, this out-of-the-way old sand quarry definitely should be on you list of places to visit on Kauai. I saw several endangered species on my recent visit, including Hawaiian ducks and Hawaiian stilts. A level trail with interpretive signs leads you easily across the whole complex of ponds.
Something chill to do if you enjoy nature. Not terribly obvious from the main road but there is a sign as you enter the area. Not clear where to park but we just hung a u turn and pulled over. Lots and lots of stilts around that were fun to see, some labeled plants and the signs described the different bids you can see in the area/island. We visited early on our trip and were able to name birds throughout the week that we saw on the island. Peaceful experience.
Lots of great birds! The story behind the site it interesting and the wildlife was great! Stilts, herons, and Gallinules are always nice to see.
There are several bird species in this sanctuary. This place was made a bird sanctuary in the early 1900s.
A great little hidden gem. Was great to see all the water fowl protected in this marshland
