Kilauea, Kauai

 

Kilauea is one of the communities along the northern shore of the beautiful and majestic island of Kauai. It is located 25 miles away from the Nawiliwili Harbor and the Lihue Airport which are both the gateways through which tourists and locals come and go.

Kilauea’s visitors may enjoy a wide array of recreational activities including scuba diving, golf, swimming, fishing, snorkeling, surfing, sailing and more. Just a few minutes away are the Princeville golf courses and the Hanalei Bay. The Princeville is one of the most popular and visited resorts in Hawaii. Tourists can visit the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, the Hanalei Valley Lookout, and the Kilauea Lighthouse.

Kilauea is the southeastern most and youngest volcano on the island of Hawaii. For many years, it was thought to be only a satellite of the larger Mauna Loa, which is also a volcano. However, after decades’ worth of research, scientists discovered that the Kilauea is a separate volcano with its own magma system that extends down over sixty kilometers into the earth’s core.

The peak of Kilauea is on the line of volcanoes that includes the Kohala and the Mauna Kea.

The line does not include the Mauna Loa.
