Kilauea town is located just makai of the first service station you'll see on the North Shore, a small and diverse bedroom community with roots as a plantation town. Kilauea Lighthouse, now known as Daniel K Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse is one of Kauai's must see destinations. Commissioned in 1913 and restored in the last decade, the ocean views from the peninsula it sits on are some of the best to be found anywhere in the State of Hawaii, with diverse wildlife ranging from a large variety of seabirds to marine life including whales just offshore (prime season season Jan - April). Heading to the Lighthouse you'll drive through the historic part of town comprised of wonderful stone buildings from plantation days housing a variety of shops and dining, a post office, as well as the new Ahuimanu commercial center with small supermarket, coffee shops, eateries and other services. Rock Quarry (Kahili), Secret Beach, and Kalihiwai Bay are nearby. The relatively new Anaina Hou Community Park has mini-golf, hiking and biking trails, an outdoor pavillion with weekly and special musical and other events, and a great playground for the kids. The 240 acres of Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens & Sculpture park developed and bequeathed by Joyce and Ed Doty is a marvel of tropical horticulture, agriculture, and forestry containing one of the largest bronze statue collections in the entire United States. And of course, with its long history of agriculture there's two Farmer's Market locations in full swing Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
