Hawaii Lighthouses

Hawaii is home to around one hundred lighthouses, that are scattered around the islands. Because so much of Hawaii's history revolves around the ocean, lighthouses are an important part of this information. In ancient days, Hawaiians lit torches to light the way for canoes and other ocean vessels. Lighthouses were first introduced to the islands in the late eighteen hundreds.

Lighthouses are important to Hawaii because of vast amount of shipping that is done to support the economy of Hawaii. Many of these lighthouses are beautiful and some are open for touring. One of the most well known is located on the island of Oahu. It is open every day from nine thirty to five and you can walk on the observation deck. It is still in use today, but is used for controlling the traffic of the harbor more than for guiding in big ships. It was the tallest building in Hawaii when it was built. There is no charge to visit this attraction.

The lighthouse at Diamond Head is not open to the public, but is home to the Coast Guard. This lighthouse guards the area above the popular beaches of Waikiki. The lighthouse, located at pier 9 in Oahu, is one of the most interesting looking lighthouses in the world. It is built in the Gothic style and looks like it could be at home in New York city rather than in Hawaii. This lighthouse is also open for tours.

These lighthouses are only a few of the beautiful beacons that can be visited in the Hawaiian Islands. There are many more located on other islands and they can be viewed by cruise ships, from airplanes or by land. Find a list and make visiting this part of the islands history a part of your visit.
