Kauai Botanical Gardens

Hawaii is home to one, not two, but five beautiful national botanical gardens – and Kauai has three of them.

Kauai wasn’t dubbed “The Garden Isle” for nothing. With it’s lush, natural beauty, it’s exactly the kind of place you’d expect to find some of the most gorgeous botanical gardens on earth.

Meet the National Kauai Botanical Gardens:

  • McBryde Garden

    –  Located in the Lawai Valley on the South Shore of Kauai, this botanical garden features more native Hawaii, plants, flowers, and trees than any other garden in the world.  Come see flowering orchids, colorful tropical trees, heliconias, and much more.



  • Allerton Botanical Garden

    – Also on the South Shore in the Lawai Valley, this garden was once overseen by Hawaiian Queen Emma (1856 – 1863) and then purchased by artist and architect Robert Allerton.  Come and enjoy the various “garden rooms” that were carefully designed, along with the soothing sounds of small waterfalls, pools and fountains.

  • Limahuli Garden

    – This garden is on the North Shore, with the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Makana Mountain on the other – you’ll get some great views! This botanical garden honors the early Hawaiians and the flora that were important to them, such as taro.  You’ll also see the Limahuli stream, which is home to many of Hawaii’s indigenous species of aquatic animals.




… and those are just the national botanical gardens.  Kauai actually has about seven botanical gardens in all, so there is no shortage of places to go to take in the beauty of Hawaiian nature!
