Aloha and welcome to Mauis Garden Of Eden Arboretum. An Arboretum is a park dedicated to trees. We also feature hundreds of lowland rainforest species of flowers,shrubs,and ground covers as well.We began this project in1991 with 30 acres of densely overgrown jungle, now after investing more than 20yrs of physical labor and 2 million dollars, we have created one of Hawaii's most visited botanical gardens. We have many plants found nowhere else or are uncommon to Hawaii, such as rare Amazon fruits and medicinal species, endangered hardwoods, spice, exotic nut trees, ferns and so much more...A botanical Disneyland with over 2 miles of maintained graveled walking trails...A truly educational facility with over 700 plants botanically labeled. Try to allow at least 45 minutes to explore.We feature great views and photo opportunities but no direct access to the waterfall or pools.If you are only interested in restrooms (we now have improved facilities) You can do so for free 2 miles down the road.A portion of your entry fee is donated to the nature conservatory. The cost to keep our gate open averages $1,000/dy so we sincerely thank you for your support,,,especially those who have contributed beyond our entry fee. Most botanical gardens have teams of volunteers and use chemicals to curb costs. Our entire staff are well paid professionals, and we are almost entirely a chemical free park. Thank you for visiting, we do take your comments to heart

We waited in the car queue a couple of minutes just to learn that the entrance fee is 15 USD per person. As a matter of fact we were not willing to pay 30 USD for the two of us and left. They advertise that you are able to watch whales which we can hardly believe as it is still... More

On the way to Hana we visited this place. Though it was raining we could enjoy the varieties of plants and many small and big streams.One side of it is a thick rain forest and the other side is the great Pacific Ocean.Really a thrilling experience.

This is a really nice place to visit on your way to Hana.

We stopped here on our drive to Hana. We found it to be a bit expensive at $15 pp...however, you do get to see a waterfall from this location and Keopuka Rock overlook, which is in the opening scene of the Jurassic park movie...the grounds are beautiful with lots of flowering plants, bamboo, fruit trees, etc. You could easily spend...

This is one of the first stops on the Road to Hana and it was definitely worth the entrance fee. We had a nice hike through the garden. So many beautiful flowers and interesting plants. The taco truck at the Garden of Eden also had excellent tacos! Perfect snack for after our hike.

If you are a tourist on the Road to Hana, keep going! The garden is beautiful, but for $30 (for a couple) continue on the RtoH and check out the other amazing free sites. Catch it on the way back if you are so inclined; but at $15/person, I consider it overpriced! Also, if you are in need of facilities... More

We decided to take the plunge and drove the road to Hana as far as the Arboretum. The gardens were delightful, the views were ok. My biggest consideration was the price. Given that it's a drive-around place, being charged $15 per person, not per car, seemed very steep and unwarranted, to me. It wasn't worth $30. If we had had... More
