Had a couple hours to kill in the afternoon. Tried a couple other places and they wanted a reservation and guided tour. Not for us that day, so we drove to Limahuli Garden and Preserve. The cost is reasonable, the handbook informative, and the walk...More

Nice trip to the botanical gardens on the north shore. $20 admission fee which comes with a booklet describing features within the garden. There's no external boundary to the garden- it melts into jungle but there are some interesting plants and features along the paths....More

I noticed many of the garden/plantation walks had fairly steep ticket prices. If you can only pick one, please visit this preserve. 100% of the proceeds go to the preservation and conservation of endangered native and endemic species on the island. It's one of the...More

I think this is the best garden on Kauai. It has both native and imported plants and is laid out in an orderly, organized manner. They provide a book with detailed information about the plants. The only downside is that there is a lot of...More

We visited the Garden and Preserve during our stay in Princeville. The Garden is beautiful and the walk along the paths was informational and educational. The view of the mountains and the Pacific are amazing!

It's with good reason that Kauai is called the "Garden Island" and this is one of the best. It replicates an ancient Hawaiin village with beautiful terraced gardens and has views of the boats touring the Napili Coast. The location is very near Ke'e Beach,...More

You might want to go to their sister garden in the southern part of the island. It's the NTBS Allerton Garden. It's a lovely stroll as the gardens were planted by the Allerton's as outdoor rooms. Perfect for the entire... More
