Garden
The Moir Gardens are botanical gardens located within the Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation, 2253 Poipu Road, Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii. They are open daily without charge.The gardens were created in the 1930s by Alexandra Moir while her husband was manager of Hawaii's first sugarcane plantation, Koloa Plantation, near the site. By 1948 the private gardens were reportedly identified as "one of the ten best cactus and succulent gardens in the world." They opened to the public in 1954.Today the garden contains rare cactus and succulents, bromeliads, orchids, mature trees, and water lily ponds. Just to the east is Poipu Beach Park.

  • Unfinished or partially abandoned. The access is open to go in but weeds, empty pools, cut palm leaves, and unkempt look of the place makes if feel it has been left alone mostly for a few years. Otherwise it's a small quick walk around.
