This is a beautiful spot, well worth the entrance fee & 90 minutes of your time to walk around. The highlight was definitely the Pi'ilanihale Heiau, but we also enjoyed just wandering around on the bright green grass & looking at the plants & trees, as well as the buildings & coconut grove. It's a very peaceful spot & you... More

I put 2 stars because you have to rate it but I didn't actually go in because it was closed. We went during their posted business hours, and the sign out front on the beginning of the road said closed but since it was supposed to be open, we went down the road. It had been raining and the road... More

This is definitely the best garden & historical spot on Maui. It is a beautiful spot to stretch your legs & soak up some Hana.

It is definitely worth stopping if you have time on the way to Hana or back (I think it closes around 4pm?) but it's not something amazing as I thought. Looks much more cool from the sky I think (based on pics).

If you have any interest in the native flora of Maui this is a worthwhile stop while on the Road to Hana. While there are other places to see native plants, what makes this place special is the combination of the plants, the layout, the accompanying descriptive information, the ocean-side setting and, of course, the massive ruins of the former...

From highway 30 make a left for about 2 miles in very unpaved road o my to find out the damn thing is closed. Disappointed. A banner right when I turned left said lava caves and garden open. So I had to drive through the rough road for about 15 minutes one way going at about 7-10mph to find out... More

There are other places to go see native plants, so don't come here for that. The real reason to come here is to see the massive Pi'ilanihale Heiau. It is the biggest one in the state. You don't really appreciate the size of it until you see it in person. Note that you can't walk on it or around it.... More

This well-tended botanical garden showcases native plants. Its setting right on the ocean makes it particularly appealing. But the real attraction is the Pi'ilanihale Heiau. When you realize that what you're seeing is merely the ruins of the foundation of the former temple, you start to understand just how colossal it must have been. Do check it out.

This is a hidden gem! There are great views!! Great island history together with the gardens. Also - the bathrooms are super clean. Well worth the $10 each admittance.
