Ho’omaluhia is Oahu’s largest botanical garden. It truly lives up to its name which roughly translates to “Peaceful refuge”. The garden was established in 1982, designed and built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers for flood protection. Now, they lay special emphasis on conversing plants native to Hawaii and Polynesia. The garden includes a lake, walking trails, campgrounds, and a visitor centre with a lecture room, exhibition hall, workshop and botanical library. As soon as you enter, your breath is taken away by the gorgeous views that lie ahead of you. The landscapes are absolutely stunning! It is the perfect place for a picnic or a day out. The lake is wonderful and the variety of fish and other wildlife makes it even more worthwhile.

Ho' Omaluhia Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings

  • One of Oahu's most beautiful places! The garden is full of local plants, scenic views and opportunities to spend time in nature. Everywhere you look you get amazing views of the mountains. If you love nature and the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, this is the place to go! One could easily spend an entire day strolling around the big garden. And the best thing about it is the fact that it's completely free! It's totally a must see when on Oahu.

  • Perfect place for a nature walk (or run)!Plants from Asia and the Pacific, check out the native plant garden. Weekend fishing (catch and release) they offer bamboo fishing poles for use at the Visitors Center. Be sure to check hours. Feed the fish and ducks down at the pond. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy at one of the tables or spread a blanket on the grass. Be mindful of your waste and dispose of trash. Immerse yourself in nature. Parking is free. Drones not allowed. Felt the need to mention since there are signage which prohibit it's use which one visitor chose to ignore.

  • Beautiful location if you want to get up close to the beautiful mountains. Stop at the visitor center to get an idea of the valley and take a walk through the walk way with labeled plants and make your way down to the lake. But don't so there. There are lots of parking spots further down the road great for picnics or just to have the valley to your self. You can ski camp here after registering at the visitor center...all this for free! Just don't expect a true Botanical Garden.... More of a park... But still beautiful!

  • This place is great. So lush, o green. Famous for being a film location for Jurassic Park. Unfortunately, taking photos in the first part of the road is strictly forbidden now. We tried to convince the ranger but there was no choice; forget about the iconic photo.

  • No words to describe beauty of this place. Once you're inside it's a 360 degree beauty all around you. There is no entry fee and great place for exploring trees, birds and rejuvenate. Few tips - * Gate opens at 9am. Visiting then is better as less crowd and better views * Taking photos in entrance driveway is strictly prohibited and enforced by the guard on duty * If you go early, you can grab a fishing pole from the visitor center office * There is a small but beautiful art gallery behind the office. * Drive carefully when going in/out - there are lots of pedestrians
