Fern Grotto Inn, a collection of vacation rental cottages on Kauai, recently carried out a survey of its guests, asking them which spot on Kauai is the best for birdwatching. Almost unanimously, the survey participants chose the Kilauea Lighthouse in the Kilauea National Wildness Refuge.
In being named the most popular birdwatching destination, the North Shore’s Kilauea Lighthouse beats two other popular birdwatching spots, the Koke'e State Park and the Alakai Wilderness, both of which are located inland on the northeast side of Kauai.
Paul Juma, who owns Fern Grotto Inn, explains, “The Lighthouse is popular because it’s so accessible. People of all physical abilities can go birdwatching there without spending all day trekking through the jungle. It’s also only ten miles north of Kapaa, which makes it a very convenient day trip.”
The Kilauea Lighthouse was built in 1913 on a peninsula. Today, it is home to rare seabirds found only in Hawaii, including brown- and red-footed boobies, petrels, great frigatebirds, white-and red-tailed tropicbirds, Laysan albatrosses, and shearwaters.
“My guests come to Kauai because it’s less developed and has more forests and wildlife than the other islands,” says Juma, “Birdwatching is always at the top of their to-do lists, and in light of the survey, I’ll definitely recommend the Kilauea Lighthouse as a not-to-miss spot.”
Fern Grotto Inn, based in Kapaa, Hawaii, has six vacation rental cottages on the east side of Kauai. Fern Grotto Inn prides itself on providing luxury accommodations for guests who want an authentic Kauai experience.
