Allerton Garden, Poipu

4.6
#3 of 13 in Parks in Poipu
Allerton Garden is a gem in the crown of Hawaii National Tropical Botanical Gardens. Designed by Queen Emma of Hawaii and shaped by time, the garden is shaded by large rainforest plant life and tropical fruit. Flowers, ginger, and palms flourish and fill the area with sweet smells. All this natural beauty is complemented by sculptures, fountains, and manicured lawns inspired by European gardens. Take a self-guided tour through the gardens, and stop at the visitor center for literature and to ask the staff any questions.

  • Absolutely amazing! I got some of the greatest photos here. The story behind the gardens are very interesting. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable also. Great day!
  • A must see when in Kauai! I have seen things here I have never seen before. The guides are very knowledgeable and all the plants seem to have a story.
  • I would suggest the longer tour, which still seems short because of it’s impressive gardens and beautiful plants. The tour guides are very informative. They provide umbrellas, which are necessary most days. The garden tour is at a slow pace, and that is necessary with so much to take in. The different theme rooms, as they’re called, are some of the most amazing landscaping and architecture accompanied by beautiful sculpture, that I’ve ever seen. Tours are small and this allows for any question interaction you may have with the tour guide.
  • Allerton Gardens admission is quite high, at $50 per person, but the fee is well worth it. Our guide, Sam, was funny, informative, and a true Hawaiian. Even the young people with us were quite pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoyed this activity. The money is used to help take care of this treasure which is an important part of history as well as a magical place!
  • Beautiful Place. Lovely Foliage. It is a Botanical Bonanza. 👍
