Beautiful tropical botanic garden

This place is AMAZING if you are a photographer! Such an abundant array of plants and flowers, and the garden itself is set in a beautiful valley by the sea. We loved our visit

Gorgeous!!
Apr. 2021 • Family
Gorgeous gardens!! Absolutely gorgeous. Definitely something to see !!! Flowers you’ll see nowhere else.. just amazing!The only thing that put a damper on it is that one of the employees kept watching to make sure we had our masks on.. we’re not anti maskers but when we were in our own group (like 99%of everyone else) we pulled our masks down. One of the employees saw that and aimed in at my husband. He pulled his mask up(which fogs up his glasses) and when we were on our own he let it slip under his nose.. the employee was absolutely watching for this(hidden behind a bush)... and confronted my husband again. My husband left he was so upset..

Amazing Experience!
Apr. 2021
Most amazing plant life you will see! We had a great time at the botanical gardens! It was so peaceful and when you make your way down to the ocean, it is even more beautiful. And make sure to stop at What's Shakin' just up the rad some great food and a hole coconut to drink out off.

Prepare for stunning species and rain - don’t miss!

This is one of the best botanical gardens in the world and made even better by the incredible rocky coastline. Do not overlook this - in fact, plan your day around coming here. Definitely prepare for rain!

Beautiful and serene

The place is packed with tropical plants and foliage. You can spend just one hour or half a day. Bringing your lunch and enjoying it on one of benches among the flowers and trees or at the bottom by the ocean might be a good idea. Well cared for.

If you are an avid gardener or just love to see what someone else's green thumb can accomplish- this is the place for you. I am in my late 40's and was one of the youngest people there from what we could see. I would definitely say this would not be entertaining for tweens or teens. We thought the cost to enter was somewhat high since it is a self guided tour and receives a lot of donations from what we read. It was a low key way to kill a couple of rainy hours when beaching was not an option.

Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens is one of the best places to visit on the Big Island. I took more pictures of flowers in my two-hour visit than I have in the past 7-trips to Hawaii. Absolutely beautiful site and not to be missed. Umbrellas available.

A Wonderful Garden and Experience
Mar. 2020
A very beautiful place with so many flowers and tropical plants from around the world. A little bit of a steep walk to eventally get down to the ocean where it turns around and goes back up. Beautiful scenery throughout the gardens. So glad we went here. Raining a little so bring good shoes so you don't slip during the walk.
