Nestled between two mountain ranges—the Waianae and Ko'olau—this 27-acre garden is considered the "tropical jewel" of Honolulu's botanical gardens. Its history dates back to a 1920s attempt by sugar planters to create an experimental arboretum. Tours through the garden reveal a stretch of land devoted to plants that thrive in a humid, cool tropical climate. Both guided and solo tours are available. Explore a magical, lovely, sweet-smelling rainforest, in which exotic tropical blooms flourish. Entrance to the garden is free.
