If you’re into lush foliage, exotic flowers, unusual fruit trees, beehives, chocolate, and a good time you must visit Kauai’s Princeville Botanical Gardens. Friends of mine, Bill and Lucinda, have created over 8 acres of Paradise and have opened up their property for tours. During these educational tours you’ll be treated to raw cacao, gourmet chocolate, honey, seasonal fruit samplings from the land, and a delightful guided walk through the gardens. You’ll learn about native Hawaiian flora, tropical medicinals, sacred flowers, and food plants.
Guided tours are four days a week. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday have tours in the morning (9:30) and in the afternoon (2:00). There is one tour only on Friday and it starts at 9:30. Tours are $69 for ages 17 and older, $22 for ages 7 to 16, and children age 6 and under are free. Reservations are required.
Princeville Botanical Gardens is just outside of the Princeville Resort Community, a 5 minute drive from Honu Point. Trip Advisor ranks it #2 out of 25 things to do in Princeville. You won’t be disappointed. Give them a call at (808) 634-5505 or check out their website at http://kauaibotanicalgardens.com/ There you may enjoy a video where Bill and Lucinda tell about their passion for this project.
