Even if wandering through greenery isn't your idea of a relaxing vacation, a trip to the one-of-a-kind Limahuli Garden should be on your radar for a Kauai vacation. Not only is it located on an ancient heiau (sacred space), but they also specialize in native plants to Kauai--a rarity on the islands. On a recent trip through this collection, I learned more about nature than I ever have on a trip to the islands. Consider this: if a plant flowers, it is not native to Kauai. I told you it was informative!
Plus, there is no better place to whale watch and space out on the ocean that spread below this dramatic landscape.
Though the cost can be steep ($15 for a self guided tour and $30 for a guided tour--which I highly recommend). It is worth every penny.
Just make sure to bring mosquito repellant and good walking shoes.
