Travel Instructions: From Highway 56 in Anahola turn east on Kukuihale Road. Continue east until the road makes a sharp left towards Anahola Beach. At this point, you need to continue straight on a narrow, dirt road. Drive until you see the ocean, and you will be near the light. Note that this dirt road is now blocked by boulders so a short hike is necessary to reach the light.
