Enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean, an historical lighthouse, and a diverse bird sanctuary when you visit Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge.

To learn about the historical significance of the lighthouse, and the wildlife that resides on the refuge, read informative displays at the visitor center and speak to staff there. There is also a small museum and volunteer center where you can educate yourself further.
