The place is packed with tropical plants and foliage. You can spend just one hour or half a day. Bringing your lunch and enjoying it on one of benches among the flowers and trees or at the bottom by the ocean might be a good idea. Well cared for.

If you are an avid gardener or just love to see what someone else's green thumb can accomplish- this is the place for you. I am in my late 40's and was one of the youngest people there from what we could see. I would definitely say this would not be entertaining for tweens or teens. We thought the cost to enter was somewhat high since it is a self guided tour and receives a lot of donations from what we read. It was a low key way to kill a couple of rainy hours when beaching was not an option.

Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens is one of the best places to visit on the Big Island. I took more pictures of flowers in my two-hour visit than I have in the past 7-trips to Hawaii. Absolutely beautiful site and not to be missed. Umbrellas available.

A very beautiful place with so many flowers and tropical plants from around the world. A little bit of a steep walk to eventally get down to the ocean where it turns around and goes back up. Beautiful scenery throughout the gardens. So glad we went here. Raining a little so bring good shoes so you don't slip during the walk.
