We were driving around, trying to find a state park that I had happened upon years ago, and couldn't find it. I kept going though thinking that perhaps it would appear out of nowhere, but that didn't happen. So I called my sister-in-law and she...More

A very secluded tropical botanical garden away from the crowds. So reasonable and a wonderful scenic spot on Oahu.

We very much enjoyed the garden, and the view of the ocean from one area of the garden. We learned much about different trees. For the first time in our lives we saw coco (chocolate) tree, macadamian nuts trees, and several other trees.
