Lighthouse fans will love the historic Kilauea Lighthouse, built in 1913 and manned by the Coast Guard and now under the jurisdiction of the Fish and Wildlife Services of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

The lighthouse has the largest "clamshell lens" in the world and can send a beam 90 miles out to sea. The lens is no longer used, however, and has been replaced by a low-maintenance high-intensity light.

The surrounding area is swarming with birds and monk seals and green turtles can sometimes be seen along the shore. Dolphins and whales can sometimes be spotted offshore.
