We also feature hundreds of lowland rainforest species of flowers,shrubs,and ground covers as well.We began this project in1991 with 30 acres of densely overgrown jungle, now after investing more than 20yrs of physical labor and 2 million dollars, we have created one of Hawaii's most visited botanical gardens. We have many plants found nowhere else or are uncommon to Hawaii, such as rare Amazon fruits and medicinal species, endangered hardwoods, spice, exotic nut trees, ferns and so much more...A botanical Disneyland with over 2 miles of maintained graveled walking trails...A truly educational facility with over 700 plants botanically labeled. Try to allow at least 45 minutes to explore.We feature great views and photo opportunities but no direct access to the waterfall or pools.If you are only interested in restrooms (we now have improved facilities) You can do so for free 2 miles down the road.A portion of your entry fee is donated to the nature conservatory. The cost to keep our gate open averages $1,000/dy so we sincerely thank you for your support,,,especially those who have contributed beyond our entry fee. Most botanical gardens have teams of volunteers and use chemicals to curb costs. Our entire staff are well paid professionals, and we are almost entirely a chemical free park. Thank you for visiting, we do take your comments to heart « less

We pulled off the Road to Hana to see what the deal was with this garden and got stuck behind a few cars to get in. After we got to the gate we saw why there was a delay - everyone was given an extremely exaggerated description of what was inside, complete with a map that made the property look... More

The Garden of Eden is 30 acres with more than 2 miles of well maintained walking paths. Our entry gate personnel are trained and give a very accurate description of our Garden, as well as being able to offer advice and information to other stops along the Hana Highway. Our Signs, Garden Map, and Personnel all state that we have... More

My family of three (56/55/20) stopped here the day after Isele passed over the island, but like most attractions that day, it was closed. We came back a couple of days later to see the things we missed. We were not dissapointed. Bear in mind that this is a botanical garden - not a thrill ride at an amusement park.... More

We were shown a misleading map with photos of many flowers that are alledgely on the property - we drove up what was basically a long driveway past some ducks, tacky statues and the same flowers you see on the road to Hana. The bathrooms were not even normal bathrooms, but Jiffy Johns (and not well tended to). The waterfall... More

The Garden of Eden is 30 acres with more than 2 miles of well maintained walking paths, exclusive views, and thousands of plant species. 100% of the photos displayed along our entry road and gate house have been taken in our Garden. The road though the Garden has many labeled flowering plants, fruit trees, and unique Palm trees you can... More

This was a great stop along the road to Hana. It's a very large, beautifully maintained garden with walking trails and waterfalls. There are so many different species of plants, fruits, etc, and they have them all labelled and some have information written out about them. We found the walk around the garden very peaceful and serene, and got to... More

For those of you that are Jurassic Park fans, it's fun to hike up to the Keopuka Rock overlook (featured when they fly into the island). It's a beautiful place for hiking around, and yes, you have to pay for admission. However, if you don't vacation here regularly then it's worth the little bit of cash to experience the garden....

I love gardens and flowers so we decided to stop. There was a $15 per person fee to get in. When they at telling you what's in the garden at the entrance (were you decide to pay our skip going in) they make it sound a LOT cooler than it really is. Save your money. You can see much better... More

Beautiful stop on the Road to Hana. Great spots to stop and enjoy the lush scenery and unique foliage. It was $15 per person to get in, which was a little steep to just walk around but there were amazing views.

Maui's Garden of Eden along the Road to Hana is a beautiful arboretum. The only case I can see being made for not stopping, aside from the admission fee, is simply that there's so much other stuff to do along the Road to Hana. The views of the waterfalls aren't great, but I really liked the view of the rock... More

Stopped here on road to hana near beginning and wish we could've spent longer. So many gorgeous plants, flowers and trees. There is a spot where they filmed opening scene on Jurassic Park which was incredible to see. Nice and relaxing park to walk around and very friendly staff.

We stopped here along the road to Hana as our guide book suggested it. Overall, it was really dull and we felt it a waste of time and money. You can see all the same things anywhere else on Hawaii, nothing really special about it. If you're doing the Road to Hana, give this place a miss, there are a... More
