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

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

At the end of the Garden of Eden trail before you exit, stop at the food truck and have a bite to eat. They have the best fish tacos!

Early in everyone's trip along the road to Hana, it's natural to have the urge to explore as you feel like you are "missing something" by passing any roadside attraction, cluster of parked cars, or snack stand. Do yourself a favor: Save you $$$, and skip this place. So much natural beauty along the trip, and this place looks like... More

This is definitely a place where you have to weigh the cost. We were happy we stopped saw some amazing plant species. The trail was a good walk on the grounds, but definitely would be difficult w/strollers + wheelchairs in some areas. If the price was revised to by the car not per person would probably get more visitors. The... More

If you don't love plants don't stop here, yes its not cheap but we spent hours walking and enjoying all the trees and flowers ( which are all marked very well). It took someone a lot of time and love( and money) to put this place together and to maintain it must be incredible. we brought a picnic lunch, they... More
