Self-guided walk through an old garden populated by numerous cacti. The garden is adjacent to Kiahuna Plantation so it is a must see for anyone staying there. It is an easy walk if you are okay with uneven surfaces.

This was one of my favorite stops on the island. It is located within the Kiahuna Plantation Resort. You are able to tour the small area of orchids and succulents at your own pace. I never knew there were so many different types of different and unusual orchids. My family and I just enjoyed ourselves. Took lots of pictures.

I saw rave reviews, so stopped by. This is a really strange "garden" with lots of lava rocks and visible pipes. But the collection of orchids placed there and massive tangled cacti are really a cool surprise.

I didn't realize this garden was inside of a plantation resort area before we went so we felt kind of weird going in. My husband and I happened to be close by and decided to stop, and it was definitely cool, though maybe not worth going out of your way. It was kind of annoying that they had a public... More

This interesting garden is located by Plantation Garden Restaurant. There are hundreds of orchids around the entrance. Then there is a garden on the side which contains a variety of trees, flowers and cactus plants. This is a place where cactus were introduced to the island, then spread and many are in other parts of the island, becoming invasive plants.... More

Located on the grounds of the Kiahuna Plantation/Plantation Gardens restaurant, this strange, large cactus garden is kind of weird. Cactus in Hawaii??? The original plantation manager's wife was a cactus lover who imported it for her garden....leading to the wild growth of cactus around the southern part of the island. Thank you, Mrs. Moir, for these invasive species. While not... More

This is an interesting little garden for those who appreciate interesting plants. Tucked in behind the Outrigger Kiahuna Plantation Resort, it's a bit of a challenge to find. There are two parts...one side mostly orchids and not all that special other than their number. On the other side look for an array of cacti and other interesting plants that can... More
