Botanical Gardens

Having been to Kauai and having really enjoyed the 3 National Botanical Gardens there I was wondering what the nicest gardens on Maui were? In my time of lurking here on the Maui board I rarely if ever see the Kahanu Garden mentioned? Are the gardens on Maui as nice as those on Kauai?

Hello Kelly_TPM. My favorite thing to visit anywhere in the world is a botanical garden. Sadly, have not had the time to enjoy Kauai's, although I've heard they are wonderful. On Maui, we like Kula BG upcountry. It's not huge, but very well laid out, lots of lovely protea. You could combine it with a visit to Paia.


The Garden of Eden Botanical Garden at the beginning of the Road to Hana is exceptional. Lots of lovely views and some really unusual plants (jade vine, especially). I really loved this garden.


Next, you will need to visit lovely Oahu. There are more than 4 lovely botanical gardens and an arboretum, too.

Have a great time. Debbie

Kahanu is a wonderful place. I def encourage you to visit it and others too. For those unfamiliar with it, here's one link:


Also, Enchanting Floral Gardens-in the Kula District-recently revamped and reopened. i hear it's nicer now, but I haven't been.
