Kilauea, Kauai Travel Guide
Welcome to Kilauea, Kauai!
Not to be confused with the Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island, this Kilauea is located on the northern coast of Kauai and is notorious for its active volcanoes and guava plantations. This notoriety has garnered the town the honor of being dubbed —Guava Capitol of the World.— Kilauea receives quite a bit of rain due to its location on the northern coast, however it also sees a fair amount of sunshine ensuring lush vegetation and ideal weather for enjoying the outdoors year-round. Recreational activities in Kilauea include surfing, kayaking, snorkeling and diving. Many volcanologists flock to Kilauea for its rich volcanic history and activity. Kilauea Point is a remnant of a former volcanic vent and is now home to the Kilauea Lighthouse, a popular attraction among tourists. Nearby is the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, home to nesting seabirds such as the red-footed boobies and the Laysan albatross. Popular beaches in the area include Lumahai, Kalihiwai Bay Beach and Anini.
Lighting the way for mariners since 1913, the Kilauea Lighthouse has become a popular tourist attraction.
