    We love to explore the crater later in the day when the garden is in shadow. The cactus part is our favorite! It's fun for the kids to walk around and explore and looks different depending on the time...  more »

    While living in Honolulu for 8 months, I tried to get to many places on Oahu, and this was one of my favorites. Not only was it free, but what a gorgeous place to get my daily walking in. Inside Koko ...  more »

    I have walked the two mile loop at Koko Crater Botanical Garden many times. The Bougainvillea are well groomed and have surreal colors. I love them, they are a common shrub in Hawaii. Many of my attached photos include the Plumeria Grove in full bloom. The Plumeria is a flowering tree and the bloom smells fantastic. The Koko Crater Botanical Garden is nice if you want a nice peaceful walk. I do not recommend sandals or flip flops (slippers in Hawaii) for hiking here. Many places on the trail is quite rocky and I've seen quite a few people slip and fall. Bring water as you can work up a good thirst if you are in the sun much. I love the plants on Oahu Hawaii, they are quite unusual and beautiful.

    Nice place to go for a walk in the shade and see a bunch of different kinds of plants. There is one portable washroom near the entrance (when you walk in the gate, go left along the path). I would recommend checking it out if you are in the area!

    Nice place to walk around. "Winter" time is great mostly for walking because it's not as stiflingly hot. Not so much in bloom though.

    This garden walk is a beautiful hike. The trail offers an easy loop through many different trees from all over the world. Stunning. Keep an eye out for the mongoose darting across the path. Bring some water. The path is shaded but there are no facilities.

    Nice easy stroll. It makes a big loop around some unique plants. Not much shade so can get hot quickly. No facilities but there is a Porta potty.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
