I know, who wants to leave the beach, but there is more to Kauai than the beach. Keahua Arboretum is your countryside version. It a a little ways inland and close to the mountains, so it's cooler. There is a grassy park area with some...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful drive up to the Arboretum. Once there we enjoyed the stroll through the arboretum. The Rainbow Eucalyptus are incredible and worth seeing. One of the previous reviews indicated about driving through a stream, but the bridge is complete, so no...More

Bridge for pedestrians and cars is being built, which will be nice once finished for those that don't want to wade thru the water to get to the beautiful trees. Worthy stop for colorful photography of the trees along the river. Not much to see...More

We made a quick stop here to see the rainbow eucalyptus trees. They are pretty cool. Not much else to see. We hiked the trail just before the arboretum. Very muddy but beautiful lush views. I didn't want to drive our rental car in the...More

A nice quiet mountain park and picnic area. There are lots of trees, a small river and some great views. Be sure to look for the rainbow eucalyptus trees, they are cool. A nice change from being on beach.

We took a dog out on a "field trip" from the humane society, and this was a decent option. There's a lot of open space to run around, and there are some cool rainbow eucalyptus trees. Much farther drive to get there than expected. And...More
