Moku'ae'ae Island is a speck of land just offshore near the Kilauea Lighthouse in North Kauai. Many birds like the Laysan albatross, the red and white-tailed tropic bird, and the great frigate visit the island as well as the Hawaiian Monk Seal. The island is easily visible from the Lighthouse lookout. As you continue to drive north past Kapa'a on Highway 56, you'll pass through the town of Anahola around mile marker 13. Continue north along the Kuhio Highway (Hwy 56) until you come to Kolo Road shortly after mile marker 23.
