Amazing views. It costs $5 to walk through but it's worth it. They have binoculars you can use if you'd like. There are a handful of stationary binoculars directed at certain points as well.

Great views, the $5 entry per person seems a bit steep.

Absolutely beautiful. May be a bit crowded because between the views and the show put on by the variety of sea birds at this refuge, it's an absolutely don't miss stop on Kauai. From Līhu‘e, drive north on Kūhiō Highway for approximately 23 miles to Kīlauea, turn right on Kolo Road, then left on Kīlauea Road and drive 2 miles to the refuge entrance. All visitors are required to drive down into the refuge parking area. Parking is limited. The walkway is paved. The Refuge is open Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and is closed on Sunday and Monday and federal holidays. Admission is $5.00 per person - National Parks passes and all federal land passes are honored here. Allow at least 30 minutes to enjoy your time. Northern most point of main Hawaiian Islands. Self-guided tours only, can’t go to top of the lighthouse, but views from the bluff are worth your time. Don't miss it!
