Spent a couple of hours walking through this very educational garden. Great views and interesting to read along the tour book. Great stories included which kept the kids amused. Also nice that it's $20 per adult and kids 17 and under are free.

A worthwhile stop, learned the names of all the beautiful native plants in the area. Gorgeously landscaped with views over the Pacific.

Limahuli Garden and Preserve is set on an old Kauai settlement. It is a teaching venue devoted to the preservation and restoration of native plants and trees. I highly recommend the easily walkable trail with interpretive signs.

Beautiful natural valley that has preserved so much of the original vegetation and all that has come since. We even watched Humpback whale from several different vantage points along the way. Strategically positioned benches made us want to linger longer.

Limahuli Gardens provided us the opportunity to really learn and understand the floral and fauna of Kauai. We visited on 2/28- It is not the optimal time for the blooming season, but we certainly left satisfied!
