Officially named Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, this is a birdwatcher’s paradise, as well as a very likely place to see dolphins, turtles, rare monk seals, and even whales. The historic lighthouse on the point and the lovely views up the north shore are irresistible to photographers. There are interpretive exhibits, docents on duty to answer questions, and of course, there’s a gift shop. You’ll probably be greeted in the parking lot by a nene— one of Hawaii’s rare geese—or two. Do not feed them. Pick up a brochure as you go through the entrance kiosk to help you identify the refuge birds, when to see them nesting, and when and where to watch for sea mammals.
