Set among the mountains and coastal terrain of Kauai, Limahuli Garden and Preserve is one of the National Tropical Botanical Garden's parks with waterfalls, cliffs, and plant life. Backed by the imposing Makana Mountain, the park's 7 ha (17 acres) of garden space contains distinctive biological zones and ecosystems stretching from oceanic to those in the rocky heights of the hills behind it. Don't forget to stop by the 240 m (800 ft) waterfall. Take a guided or self-guided tour to learn more about the history of the area and its people, as well as the park. Some terrain can be a little rough, so be sure to wear comfortable walking or hiking shoes.

Absolutely magical! Will be visiting again if/when we come back to the island. I loved seeing all of the plants and getting to read their histories. Plus the layout and just views from and of the area are awesome.
This is a fabulous garden; this was our third trip. Your entrance fee includes a thorough and interesting guide book/ souvenir. If you are going to several National Tropical Botanical Gardens on Hawaii and Florida, consider purchasing a membership. My friend and I bought a dual membership and saved some money.
