Jardin
“Na Aina Kai ("Lands by the sea") Botanical Gardens is quite the hidden gem in . Most know Kilauea for the lighthouse, but this wonderful 240 acre garden is not to be missed. With 70 life size (some bigger then life size!) bronze statues scattered through out the property and something for everyone: waterfalls, pools, arbors, topiaries, colonnades, gazebos, a poinciana maze, a lagoon with spouting fountains, a Japanese teahouse, and little path along a stream that leads to the ocean. Even those that don't think they like botanical gardens will have a change of heart after going on one of the tours. The vision of one of the original founders, Joyce Doty, was to have the gardens be an ever evolving work of art that they are still achieving today. Tours are done Tuesday through Friday; a variety of different tours are offered, from 1 1/2 hours ($35) to 5 hours ($85) long, ranging from casual, guided strolls and rides in the covered CarTram to treks from one end of the gardens to the ocean. It just depends on what you are interested in seeing. If you are travelling with kids I suggest the family tour; it's great for everyone and the kids get to play in the water park at the gardens. If you happen to be here on their Keiki Day (usually the last Saturday of the month) it's only $10 for kids to go in and enjoy the childrens garden. Not only are the gardens a great spot to come and learn about flora and fauna of Kauai, but they also do weddings and events here. With many options of where they can hold your special day or big event, you are sure to end up with beautiful venue. ”

Trail
“Wai Koa Plantation, a working farm on 500 private acres, is located in the town of Kilauea on the North Shore. It began in 2007 when Porter Irrigation started supplying water to the farmers on Wai Koa by channeling water from the Kalihiwai Reservoir, the only active reservoir in the area. Over the next several years, guava trees were removed and replaced with the largest mahogany forest in the United States. In 2010, the Porters began a new chapter of community service by completing and opening Kauai Mini Golf. Shortly thereafter, the Wai Koa Loop Trail was opened to the public, providing the community with free access to the historic Kilauea Stone Dam. The dam was completed in 1880, during the height of the sugar plantation era and received a prestigious Historical Site Award in 2004. The 5-mile loop trail winds through Mahogany trees and offers peaceful lagoons, a secluded swimming hole and panoramic views of Mt. Namahana. For those of you looking to do something ‘off the beaten path' the Wai Koa Plantation is for you. Starting at the Kauai Mini Golf in Kilauea back parking lot you will find The entrance to the 500-acre manicured ‘working farm’ is found in the back parking lot of Kauai Mini Golf in Kilauea. It states that the trail is intermediate, however, it is more of a beginner trail, just a bit longer. There are fascinating signs and stops along the way, educating you about the Farm and the history of the Plantation. You will walk thru the largest Mahogany plantation in the United States and see where Kauai Fresh farms grow their delicious avocados. You will also stop in the middle at the historic stone damn. A magical place with manicured gardens and a babbling brook. This damn is about halfway through the hike and the perfect place for a picnic and a swim. Depending on your speed the hike takes approximately 2 hours, longer if you stop for a picnic. Bring WATER, comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, snacks, your bathing suit and your camera! ”
