Thank you we left feeling totally relaxed it was a wonderful way to spent a few hours. Could easily have stayed longer the gardens were really beautiful to wander through up to the waterfall which we both enjoyed a swim in. But it was gardens that made it for us.

We spent 5 hours on the lawn (arrived an hour early to secure parking) Shady was provided by beautiful trees and canvas sails strung across the space. There was also seating in the pavilion. Plenty of chairs were provided, but many in the audience brought their own chairs and blankets. Food and drink, even alcoholic beverages were for sale, many... More

A great stop to learn about the Hawaiian land division known as ahupua'a and enjoy the natural beauty of Waimea. On Thursdays there is a fantastic farmers' market with local vendors and crafts people. It is the only farmer's market I have been to where there was a beer and wine bar!

This is definitely a beautiful but busy place to visit! It's certainly a must see if you haven't done much exploring of the island. You walk about a mile through beautiful plants and trees to get to a waterfall, which you can swim in during the summer, that truly is beautiful. One downfall is we went in the afternoon and...

Went to the beach and up to the waterfall. Great sights. The snorkeling was great, we saw three large turtles. Had to move to avoid being hit by one. This is post card Hawaii stuff!

This is a very nice botanical garden. I emphasize **botanical garden**. It's not a wilderness hike, it's not nature in the raw (the path is paved the whole way), it's not difficult, and don't expect to be alone at a wild waterfall at the end. If it takes you 30min to reach the waterfall, you have missed the point of... More

What a place to get lost in and see how Hawaii was really like before being settled. The walk alone is amazing. My favorite was the many types of birds that were singing and chattering all around us. The waterfall was of course breathtaking.

This place is not too touristy, for it costs a bit to walk (or get a ride) on the perfectly maintained trail. It is about 3/4 mile of perfection. Someone told us the forest is where they filmed the Hunger Games forest scenes when she is hunting. It has a replica of an old Hawaiian village, huge trees, paths, and... More

An easy hike. Cart available instead of walking. Swim t h e falls! Lifeguards on duty here so pretty safe. The. Walks off the main path are worth the time.
