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.

  • Not obvious where it was. Most of it is very attractive and well laid out but another part seems dry and neglected. Easy parking.  more »
  • Interesting to see and in the same area are hundreds of beautiful orchids. Definitely worth seeing the orchids as they are perfect for photographing.  more »
  • Walked to there from Poipu. Nice walk. This amazing garden was ...breathtaking! Well laid out and maintained...colorful...winding path, little ponds, and greatly enjoyed it!  more »

  • 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.
