We have relatives who live in Kula and we've visited them many times from the mainland but hadn't done this attraction before. Depending on your interests and how much time you have, it's a nice stop that took us about 90 minutes to see (but you can do it more or less quickly—it's self guided). The grounds are pretty, and...

A small well kept garden with towering gorges and a large selection of plants. You can also see native birds. Bring your hiking shoes the terrain does require a bit of a hike, but the views are worth the slight inclines and there are plenty of shaded bench areas.

This was one of the best stops for my teens in Maui. They enjoyed all of the birds, especially the Nénés and all of the flora. The view of the valley is also lovely.

Acres if peaceful wandering through wonderful gardens. There seems to be always several things in bloom. Waterfalls koi pond and covered bridges add to the atmosphere. If you like flower photography, this is the place to come. Everything is labeled with Latin and common name . There is a $10 entry fee

We went during an approaching hurricane. Although it was raining, we were given umbrellas and spent over an hour exploring the gorgeous paths and beds.

Visited the Kula Botanical Gardens and was amazed at the variety of tropical plants and views from this location inside the island of Maui. It was fun to see something different from beaches!

These gardens are well worth the $10 admission. They have many different species of plants from around the world. Even with a map the lay out is a little confusing though.

These gardens are beautifully laid out and well manicured. The lady who manages the office is very helpful and knowledgeable. Views of Kihei and West Maui from here are spectacular.

We visited the Kula Botanical Gardens on a rainy day and had the gardens to ourselves. They had free umbrellas for us to borrow! The gardens are beautiful with many different areas to view. There are quite a few areas to sit and a few gazebos to enjoy. When you come to Maui, visit these gardens, well worth the time.
