Absolutely beautiful place to walk through and see the lush fauna that grow in Hawaii. So much information about the history of the Hawaiian people, and really amazing gardens. Of course we had to swim in the waterfall, and the lifeguards were very helpful. So...More

Arrive when the park opens to have more private time in the park. More crowds of people were arriving about 2 hours after the park opened. When we arrived, we were given a map and guide to the birds of the gardens. Surprisingly, my kids...More

This is a very crowded attraction, even on an off day (like the Monday when we went). Parking can be an issue. It runs about $16 per person for a no-frills pass. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the falls and there is...More

Waimea Valley is a beautiful place to stroll in botanical gardens and enjoy a quiet morning. The plants are grouped by region and labeled for identification for the curious. We took our time, wandering through the gardens, listening to the river and enjoying the cool...More
