Cape Kumukahi Ligthouse

This simple lighthouse constructed to warn fishing boats of the location of Cape Kumukahi is situated 1 1/2 miles east of the intersection of Hwy 130 and Hwy 137. In 1960 lava flow that destroyed the nearby town of Kapoho seemingly defied logic and spared the lighthouse by flowing around the lighthouse while destroying all other structures in the area. Legend holds that Pele, the volcano goddess, spared the lighthouse to protect local fishermen. The area offers great vistas of the surrounding coconut tree lined Coast.
