Allerton Garden, Poipu

(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Opt for the Allerton & McBryde tour. Most beautiful botanical gardens we've every visited, and we've been to many gardens in the US, Canada and Europe.

  • Wonderful master planned garden. The gallery on gardens hold many surprising details that only a guide can highlight. The guides are excellent and are very knowledgeable. The high price of the tours may be a turn off for some but they help to support these wonderful gardens and protect endangered plant's.
  • Allerton's beach is a secret hideaway for those in the know. The beach is perfect for relaxing and enjoying a very relaxed low key setting...getting there is the secret!
  • Must see. Tour guide was very informative about other things to do on island, as well.
  • Allerton is one of the stops I recommend if you are visiting Kauai. Amazing plants set in beautiful "rooms". As I write this I am thinking of another visit.
  • This garden is the best art form that I've ever seen.
