A Lighthouse of Hawaii

HI 8F Kukuihaele

The Kukuihaele Landing, located on the northeastern side of the island just south of the Waipio Valley, was one of nine wire landings established along the windward shore. To mark the landing, the present thirty-four-foot concrete tower was built in 1937. Due to the height of the bluff on which it stands, the light has a focal plane of 154 feet. The Kukuihaele Light is the only remaining concrete light structure in Hawai'i which has an interior ladder used for accessing the lamp.

The roads which lead to this light are gated as the surrounding land is no longer planted in sugar cane but is used to pasture cattle. ARLHS # HAW-031
