Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Exhibiting a wealth of Hawaiian ethnobotanical traditions and some rare plants found only in cultivation, this 12-acre garden contains 250 types of plants typical of an early Hawaiian ahupuaa, the usually pie-shaped land divisions that run from the mountains to the sea. The visitor center, on the south side of the garden, includes a gift shop. The garden is 12 miles south of Kailua-Kona, across from the Manago Hotel. Connect to free wireless via app or borrow a free tablet, included with admission.
