About Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden
The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden is a museum of living plants that attracts photographers, gardeners, botanists, scientists, and nature lovers from around the world. The Garden's collection of tropical plants is international in scope. Over 2,000 species, representing more than 125 families and 750 genera, are found in this one-of-a-kind garden.

The 40-acre valley is a natural greenhouse, protected from buffeting tradewinds and blessed with fertile volcanic soil. Throughout this garden valley, nature trails meander through a true tropical rainforest, crossing bubbling streams, passing several beautiful waterfalls and the exciting ocean vistas along the rugged Pacific coast.

The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden is a 501(c)(3) Scientific and Educational non-profit, whose mission is to serve as a nature preserve and sanctuary, a living seed bank, and a study center for trees and plants of the tropical world. The Garden is dedicated to the collection and display of the world's tropical plants,and to the education of both children and adults about the plight of the world's rainforests. At a time when rainforest plants are disappearing at an alarming rate, the Garden is working to preserve as many species as possible for the benefit of future generations.
Beth Anderson's Take
The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden is a 40 acre garden that is protected from the trade-winds and has rich volcanic soil. As you walk the trail you will pass waterfalls, cross streams, and have stunning views of the Pacific coast. Onomea Bay Beach is part of the botanical garden.

The Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Gardens was a great way to spend the afternoon looking at some amazing and beautiful flowers, trees and some waterfalls as well. There is also a great spot at the bottom the trail to enjoy lunch and watch the waves crashing into the beach. If you go you must bring a camera as there are plenty of beautiful things to take pictures of.
