Throwback Thursday: Kilauea Lighthouse, Kaua'i Hawaii

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California, Inc. CA DRE #01490977

Kilauea Lighthouse on Kaua'i in Hawaii


We've been to Kaua'i a couple of times and it's on the list for a few months from now. It was such fun to come across the Kilauea Lighthouse not far from Princeville where we were staying back in 2013 (and we could see this in the distance from our condo balcony) especially since, having lived many years in New England, we often enjoyed seeing the many lighthouses along that coast.

Coincidentally at the time the lighthouse was closed - this was during the time of the US Government shutdown in October 2013 that also affected the National Park Service. Perhaps we'll be able to really visit up close and personal on this next trip.

Hi Jeff- how interesting.  I never thought of Hawaii having lighthouses.

Kauai is the only one of the islands I have not seen and I do intend to rectify that before too much time lapses.  It is supposed to be the prettiest for for vegetation.

Thanks Beth Atalay  You really should go sometime even though it's a long flight for you. Truly beautiful!

I didn't either Kathy Streib  but it makes sense with the coastline. It was a beautiful setting.

Thanks for sharing and it remonds me that as many places in the US and beyond we have visited, we have never gone to Hawaii.

Hi Harry F. D'Elia  - they are pretty interesting, and fun to tour if they are open to the public. Some of the ones back in New England are quite old.

We had a great time although it was kinda rainy off and on Noah Seidenberg  Looking forward to going again, just not sure of specifically when this year

I have many photos of this lighthouse, Jeff. We were in Princeville in 2008 when the park was open. I tried to find one for you but no luck. This is a gorgeous photo!

Debbie Reynolds  - so true. I can't wait to go again

Hope so too, George Souto  But we will enjoy the visit regardless!

You should definitely go Ed Silva  They don't call it the Garden Island just for fun. Here's the Napali Coast

Thank you Rebecca Gaujot, the Go To Realtor®  It would be hard to take a bad photo on Kauai!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington  - and that was why we didn't see it the first trip in 2012 - amazing crowds!

Put it on the list Joe Pryor

How nice of you to look Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents ! Fortunately I have a bunch of photos, but nothing close up. I hope to correct that! It's certainly an impressive setting!

Hi Jeff -- I also think there's something special about lighthouses and I hope your upcoming trip to Kauai brings some additional exploration and more cool photos to your album.
