Fodor's Review

Hawaiian and Polynesian species are cultivated at this fascinating seven-acre garden, including Hawaiian bananas, local varieties of sweet potatoes and sugarcane, native poppies, hibiscus, and anapanapa, a plant that makes a natural shampoo when rubbed between your hands. Reserve ahead for the ethnobotany tours that are offered four times a week. Self-guided tour booklets cost $4, or you can arrange a tour with a docent for $10.

Nice nature walk in uniquely Hawaiian plants

From the fragrant ginger flowers to the towering rainbow eucalptus trees, there is much to see. If you are someone who notices the foliage and want to know the names of everything green, this is the place.
