We visited this garden and waterfall late in the day and stayed until closing. It has spectacular array of flowers and plants. The waterfall and swimming area is the icing on the cake. Great experience.

There are plenty of plants to see as you hike up to the falls. Once there, they allow swimming if desired. They have a restaurant at the bottom and snack food at the top. They also have some structures built with traditional Hawaiian methods. We...More
