Fodor's Expert Review Botanical World Adventures

The Hamakua Coast Garden

Just off the highway, this garden park on more than 300 acres of former sugarcane land has wide views of the countryside and the ocean; it's also the place to see the beautiful Kamaee waterfalls. During a visit you can follow a walking trail with old-growth tropical gardens including orchids, palm trees, ginger, hibiscus, and heliconia; visit the 10-acre arboretum, which includes a maze made of orange shrubs; explore the river walk; ride the relatively small zipline; and take the only off-road Segway adventure on the island. You can tour the garden only for a nominal fee, which is waived if you take the zipline or Segway. If you skip the zipline, you can see it all in a few hours. This place is 3 miles north of Honomu.
