We visited Limahuli Garden and Preserve in December 2014. We had lots of time to kill between checking out and catching our plane. This was the best place we could have gone. The self-guided tour is great and you can roam and take in the beauty of the area at your own pace. I can only echo all the positive... More

These gardens are near the very northeast end of Kuhio highway. There is a narrow one way driveway that loops back down to the main road. Parking can be a little sparse but between the parking lot and long driveway, you could fit at least 20 cars or so. Otherwise, you'd have to park along the main road and do... More

In all fairness we didn't get to see the garden because at 10:30 in the morning there were no parking places left and the road is much too narrow and dangerous to try to park on. Make plans accordingly.

We visited Limahuli Garden and Preserve not knowing quite what to expect. An outstanding experience not to be missed. Remember that this is a Garden Preserve and contains a variety of plants in their natural habitat and not like other flower gardens. It can be viewed by self or by arranging a guided tour. Reasonable admission fee, walking sticks to... More

This was our first trip to the Limahuli Gardens. We were greeted by such a nice and friendly lady who got us set-up with our tour guide, Freddie. The tour lasted about 2.5 hours. It was very interesting to hear so much about the natural beauty and history of Kauai. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and kept our... More

Beautiful and fascinating place to visit. We allowed about 3 hours. The property has an extensive collection of native plants and flowers ; some of them extremely rare. In some cases, they are so rare that no-one alive can remember their names. Highlights are too numerous to mention, however, the taro terraces are worthy of note, as well as the... More

We hadn't planned to stop but on the way back from the end of the road decided to take advantage of being there in nice weather. The valley area is beautiful with the views of the mountains and ocean. I was impressed by their efforts to save endangered plants and they have the only remaining plants of some species. It...

This was a beautiful spot and the self-guided tour was incredibly educational. The collection of rare and endangered endemic species was one-of-a-kind. We spent two hours here and enjoyed every minute.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to Limahuli Garden and Preserve. What a lovely enchanting place. Our kids (college age) wanted to hike for a couple of hours on the N'apali Coast trail. So we dropped them at the trail head and took the short drive back to Limahuli. What a great choice! You learn so much about the history... More
