Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, Papaikou Reviews
Stunning beautiful and quite large. Beats most large botanical gardens in Mainland since they have so much variety that naturally thrives in the area. What most impressed me was that they have orchids that hug the trees and can grow like that naturally. (If you have any experience with orchids like me, they need a lot of care and are like kids almost.) $20/person. Also they have a water fall and an ocean view. One thing that was slightly comical was that the bike path crossed directly through the park and the map said "by state law illegal to enter park through bike path". But technically you have to momentarily enter the bike path (ie cross) and then re-enter the park on the other side to access the ocean view. Just curious what the legal workaround for that is?
This was a very pleasant detour from the trip going to the volcano park. The walk is quite pleasant, but it is fairly steep. The orchids that are all around are very nice -- I had never seen them in the wild before. There are a couple of nice waterfalls. We were here in November, and even though we had mosquito repellent, we ended up not needing it. They also provide umbrellas. This is a private park, maintained by a small group and they do charge about twenty bucks per adult. It is quite nice.
This is a very beautiful place that meanders through lush greenery and flower gardens and a river all the way down to the ocean. The pathways are pretty easy to walk, our 3, 5, and 8 year olds had no problems going up or down. It's a little steep in the beginning but worth it. Only downside is it is kind of pricey, we got a discount for residents but it was still $35 for the five of us. Nature should be free if you ask me.
Really beautiful. You basically walk through a rainforest to a beautiful view of the ocean. One of the best parts of our trip. A slightly strenuous walk up an incline on the way back, but there are plenty of benches to rest.
This is one of my favorite places on the Big Island. These gardens are beautiful and stunning. It is a serene place to spend a few hours.
