Along the north coast of Kauai, past Mile Marker 9 on Highway 560, Mauka (facing the mountain) is one of the island’s lovely gardens, the Limahuli Garden. Since being donated to the association in 1976, this 1,000-acre garden has now become part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden. It was opened to the public in 1995 and was named the best natural botanical garden in the United States by the American Horticultural Society in 1997. The garden on this mountain is truly unique and worth a visit. The best garden is the taro garden and the terrace system. In the pavilion, just like on the next page, you can see this archaeological wonder.
Today, with 17 acres of gardens and tropical rainforest, you can see both the island’s natural scenery and the island’s cultural history. The garden is a good place to learn the best way to protect the environment by exploring the ancient lava rock soil that still has tarotites, understanding the native plants of the Hawaiian range, and protecting the water, soil and rare plants of Hawaii . .
This garden requires an appointment and, as of this writing, costs $ 25 per person. Most people say it’s worth it, so if you have time on the North Shore, be sure to stop by. The Lima Huli stream also flows through the garden, directly to the sea. You may have noticed this when you enter the room. Tourists who enter Haena and Kee Beach often use the Limauri streams, immerse them in the ocean, and wash away equipment, sand, and seawater.
