Very peaceful. The walk to the falls is not difficult. Definitely bring water. I saw people in flip flops but glad I had tennis shoes on to make the walk more enjoyable.

Yes, swimming under the waterfall is kind of a hoot and refreshing too, but the valley with its extensive arboretum plantings is a knock-out. It was historically important to local inhabitants too. OK, if you have zero interest in plants, you may be less impressed,...More

This botanical gardens is very well done. Varied and beautiful plants with a cool waterfall. We weren't able to see all of it though, because some unknown character actor was filming a new Jumani. Some guy named The Rock, never heard of him... Bring some...More

Easy, paved hike to a waterfall with swimming hole. Native plants and flowers are beautiful, making this garden a must-visit for nature enthusiasts! Pro-tip: bring mosquito repellent unless you want to get eaten alive, and after you park take your ticket to the snack shop...More

Wonderful place for an easy hike, ending with a dip in the falls if so inclined. Flowers were stunning, showing off hawaii's beautiful native plants.

Before you enter, there is a very small eatery. Their fries are excellent!
