The Charming Hawaii Lighthouse That’s Located In The Most Magical Setting

With more than 750 miles of coastline, one might assume that Hawaii is home to more lighthouses than any other state, but it’s not. While that specific title is awarded to Michigan, the Hawaiian Islands are, in fact, home to some absolutely enchanting lighthouses, including this gem located 45 minutes north of Lihue on Kauai’s legendary north shore that sits within a wildlife refuge.
