About Haena, Kauai

Kaulana Naue is located near to the end of of the road on Kauai’s North Shore, just minutes away from famous Tunnels beach, the Na Pali Coast and the Kalalau Hiking trail head.  Haena is an exclusive, quaint, scenic, coastal neighborhood fronting expansive white sand beaches, a huge reef with verdant mountains and waterfalls as a backdrop.

Limahuli Botanical Gardens

Limahuli Garden and Preserve is set in a verdant tropical valley on the north shore of the Hawaiian Island of Kaua`i just minutes from Kaulana Naue. The Garden is backdropped by the majestic Makana Mountain and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. In Hawaiian, the name Limahuli means “turning hands,” which recognizes the ancient Hawaiians who built agricultural terraces out of lava rock and planted cultivars of kalo (taro), an important cultural food crop.  These and other plants that were significant to the early inhabitants of this area, as well as native species, make up the Garden’s collections. The property includes a plantation-era garden, as well as invasive species that were introduced by modern man. Limahuli Stream, one of the last pristine waterways left in the Islands, provides a habitat for indigenous aquatic life.  Self-guided tours from Tuesday thru Saturday.
