The Hawaiian Island of Kaua`i had no natural harbor, so dredging out a section of Nawiliwili Bay opened up the bay to shipping. Ninini Point, situated on the northern entrance to the bay, became a natural lighthouse site. Increased maritime traffic led to the first lighthouse, a wooden structure erected in 1897. Several lighthouse towers occupied the point until the U.S. Government erected the present day 86 foot, reinforced concrete lighthouse tower in 1932.
