Maui Garden Of Eden - Review
In this Garden of Eden, the grounds are maintained with great precision. The ocean views here are great. There is a lovely art gallery and immense opportunities for the photographer in you. The visitor center is quite helpful and the views of inaccessible waterfalls are something you should look out for. Some of the features of this place are a 100 Year Old Mango Tree, a Local Art Gallery, Duck Pond and Bird Feeding area, Keopuka Rock Overlook (as seen in Jurassic Park opening), Enchanted Forest, Banana Patch, an Anthorium Garden and Upper Puohokamoa Waterfalls. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Maui Itinerary 2 Days.

Maui Garden Of Eden, Maui Reviews
This is garden offers nice views and lovely trails by a variety of native Hawaiian and non native plants. Is it worth 15 dollars per person - no. I was hoping for more after driving along the Hana highway for an hour. In hindsight, I wish I would have skipped this and spent more time exploring the State arboretum, which is free and about 2 miles before this one. The Garden of Eden is worth the stop if you don't like hiking or natural exploration. You can definitely get some nice photos here but that goes for many other spots along the Hana highway.
If you are in a rush & want to check off a list, expecting to take a dip in the waterfall or measure your experience by dollars spent this is not the place for you. It is a well maintained & pruned garden. The place is magical & you could spend hours just staring at the ocean from one of the cabanas. The duck & peacock feeding was our second best experience. It is definitely worth spending time feeding them & for that moment they become your family. I wish I had more quarters(Dear Host, pls offer some at the entrance) The stroll around the other plants was pleasant. I like the work they are doing and definitely encourage others to contribute to them. I see some reviews complain about the entrance fee being steep, but common it is an island how else could they sustain.
Must see! I stopped purely from curiosity on my way to Hana. It turned out to be a great place to stop and stretch my legs. Easy pathways to stroll through, most were very level with only a slight up or down hill incline. My favorite part was listening to the bamboo sway in the wind, a natural percussion instrument. In many areas the fragrance of the fruit or flowers permeated the air. I would definitely visit again.
If you're going on the Road to Hana, you have to stop here. Now I pictured the plants to be lush with fruits but that wasn't the case. But you have to appreciate the sheer amount of land reserved to preserve nature. Also make sure you bring something to feed ducks and the peacocks with, they're very good boys.
Exceptional natural beauty in this well maintained tropical Botanical garden. It is on the more expensive side with $15 per adult and $5 per child entry fee, but is worth the price. It was far less crowded than other view areas along the road to Hana scenic route, and was very relaxing. I highly recommended this stop along the Hana highway.
