Kilauea Lighthouse began guiding the way for mariners in 1913. It served as a pivotal navigation aid for ships sailing on the Orient run. Today Kilauea Point is one of Kaua‘i's most visited sites with more than 500,000 visitors a year. Kilauea Point is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. After the light was decommissioned in 1976, the US Fish and Wildlife Service acquired it in 1985 and currently manages the 31-acre site as part of a 203-acre wildlife refuge.
Kilauea Lighthouse celebrates 100 years this year and the Centennial Celebration will run from May 1 - 5, special exhibits will be displayed at the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and daily-guided tours of the lighthouse will enable a close up view of the interior of the lighthouse. The highly anticipated relighting of the lighthouse will happen on Saturday May 4th at dusk. This will be the first time since 2010 that the recently restored Kilauea Lighthouse will shine again.
