Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge
Steep cliffs—dotted by some of Hawaii's largest populations of nesting seabirds—plunge into the ocean here at the island's northernmost tip. A little more than three kilometers (two miles) north of Kilauea town stands the historic Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse, built in 1913. The lighthouse can be reached by a short, paved wheelchair-accessible path from the parking lot. Make sure to scan the water for acrobatic spinner dolphins and Hawaiian monk seals, a highly endangered species.
