We have to echo comments by others. We turned off the main road onto an extremely bumpy unpaved road for a few hundred yards. We then started up a steep hill that had two concrete paths. It was barely wide enough for our rental car which struggled to climb the hill. Once on top, the views are great as are... More

Sure, there's a steep driveway, but so what? It's not ridiculously dangerous... just take it slow. Once you're at the top, which is not far at all, you'll have some of the finest views of the bay and ocean and mountains. And... a delicious jam tasting! We bought jam and Monoi oil as well as vanilla beans to bring back... More

After driving up a very steep driveway you are treated to fantastic views of Oponuhu Bay. Beautiful tropical plants, flowers and fruit trees. Bought some delicious icecream (taro flavour is good!). Juices and fruit and jams available. Perhaps a short tour to show you what plants are what may have enhanced this experience but well worth visiting

We went to the tropical gardens with Frankie Frank and learned everything about how vanilla is raised. Then we went upstairs to the juice bar which was a treat. Fresh squeezed juices were perfect on a hot day and the fruit jams were unique and tasty.

We wanted to cover all the attractions listed in Tripadvisor. This really was not worth it. The drive itself was a shocker. From the main road you take this steep 15min climb to the garden and if you rent one of the puny rental cars, it chokes. And god forbid if there is a car coming the other way --... More

After driving up a short Very, Very bumpy road we arrived at the rather small Tropical Garden. Nice variety of tropical plants and a good display of the vanilla plant. Another good view from here. And a nice small gift shop with local items.

We stopped here during our safari tour. We sampled some tasty homemade jams. The view from the garden is spectular. It was a great picture opportunity.

This was an excellent place to be introduced to ma'a Tahiti. A huge plate of poisson cru, spinach chicken, fe'i banana, breadfruit, coconut bun, poi, and more. The gardens are lush and tightly packed into a couple terraces. (The stone and concrete steps are uneven so watch your step.) The view on the bay is perfect.

Visited the garden with Francky Franck Tours. The place was peaceful and relaxing with a little food hut that offered refreshments. The views were nice and there was plenty to see.
