All kinds of birds to see and butterflies too. The views of the cliffs and the ocean was outstanding. Lots of history and Ne Ne (Geese). This is a protected area where the Ne Ne come to breed

I love light houses and wanted to see all while in Kauai - drive here which was a little confusing since it takes you right next to the airport through luxury homes on an off beaten path. We loved the peacefulness and the lighthouse itself....More

This is a great place to watch the sunrise and the whales during the seasons. Nice walk to and from it, by the airport, so just beware the planes land over your head. We have enjoyed the beauty of nature there numerous times.

The lighthouse area is really cool, great views all around. Easy to get to, minor fee to get in but well worth the $5. While we didn't actually do the lighthouse tour itself, the views were more than enough.

It is a gravel road, but you can drive there.
