Fodor's Expert Review Smith's Tropical Paradise

Kapaa and Wailua Garden/Arboretum

Nestled next to Wailua Marina along the mighty Wailua River, this 30-acre botanical and cultural garden offers a glimpse of exotic foliage, including fruit orchards, a bamboo rain forest, and tropical lagoons. Take the tram and enjoy a narrated tour or stroll along the mile-long pathways during the luau. It's a popular spot for wedding receptions and other large events, and its nightly luau is one of the island's oldest and best.
