The Hawaiian Islands, surrounded by the sea, are marked with numerous navigational beacons and lighthouses. Today, you'll still find all five of the Hawaiian Islands with lighthouses. Kauhola Point, jutting out into the Pacific Ocean, is located at Hawaii's northern tip on a sheer cliff. A reef there extends a few miles out from the coast, and was first lit with a navigational beacon in 1897, shortly before the islands became a U.S. Territory.
