Located in Kauai, Hawaii, Kilauea is the most northwest point and home to a historic lighthouse and a wildlife sanctuary. Established in 1985, the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge includes more than 200 acres of protected land. Migratory birds, seabirds and Hawaii’s state bird (the Nene goose) are among the wildlife found here. Kilauea, Kauai offers a great place to view Humpback whales, Hawaiian monk seals and spinner dolphins from Kilauea Point. Guided nature hikes are available.
Heading west along the Kauai northern coast of Kilauea, you'll come to Princeville, an upscale resort area offering a top-rated golf course, hotel and, and a small community of homes, condominiums and Princeville rental accommodations.
Next comes Hanalei, a scenic treasure offering panoramic views and one of Hawaii's best beaches. Swimming is usually safe here during the summer, but you might consider avoiding the water during the rugged winter months. Nearby is another outstanding beach, Lumahai Beach, where Mitzi Gaynor sang "I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Out of My Hair" in the Hollywood film classic, South Pacific.
Continuing on, you’ll come to Haena, Kauai, Hawaii at the end of the road, another pristine spot along Kauai’s North Shore. One Hawaiian legend tells of Madame Pele, the volcano goddess, visiting Ha‘ena during a major hula festival. In order to take part in the festivities, Pele took the form of a lovely young woman and promptly fell in love with a handsome Kauai chief. The remnants of the hula platform are said to remain on the hillside, near Ke’e Beach.
Finally, treat yourself to the breathtaking sight of the Napali Coast, whose cliffs rise dramatically 4,000 feet from the crashing surf. (Translated, Napali literally means "the cliffs.") While there is no vehicular access to Napali, commercial helicopter and raft tours are widely available to visitors.
