  • The Koko Crater Botanical Garden is off the beaten path, and it is well worth the visit. There were not many people there (a plus in the busy Waikiki/Honolulu area). There are interesting plants, and ...  more »
  • Have done many times, but still not come across a Japanese place. Good to go by car. Without a special gate and imagining a botanical gardens in Japan and it was extremely unfriendly. But it is good. I think I might had gotten so that contains the description of the botanical garden near the entrance has a postbox, written in English and in good overall picture also grabbed. Enter soon lots of frangipani are the most beautiful, flowering is around may. In December, was in bad, here and there and blooming. Plumeria is famous, but this botanical garden is quite deep and around the whole takes about one hour. Is also place plant rare cacti, not seen there, very quiet, you calm down. You should quit as covered by leaves and tip the overall situation, so hard to walk in the beach sandals, heel.

  • Koko Crater Botanical Garden is not your typical heavily watered, lush, fully landscaped botanical garden. It is also not jam-packed with people nor is it expensive - unusual for any excursion near Ho...  more »

  • 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.
  • This was an unexpected delight. Its free and quite and beautiful. The two mile loop is an easy stroll along well maintained paths. If you need to shorten your trip there are several opportunities to loop back. While the paths are a perfect mix of sun, shade, and plenty of dappled sunlight, sunscreen and a hat are always a good idea in Hawaii. There is one picnic table about halfway down. Do be aware of any pesticide/herbicide treatment signs. Stay out of those areas. The garden is broken up into regions: Americas, Pacifica, Hawaii, Africa, and Madagascar, The variety of plants was surprisingly large for a Hawaiian garden. You begin in a Plumeria grove, every kind of plumeria possible is represented. You'll also see Kiawe, Koa, many variety of Cacti, Palms, Wiliwili, Leopard Tree, serveral variety of Aloe, so many more, too many to list.
  • Don't let the name fool you. We were expecting to walk around a nice little garden. Instead we needed to hike. We only brought flip flops and didn't want to go back so we kept on going. The cactuses are beautiful and unique. I accidentally stepped on a piece of the cactus that fell on the floor. It pierced through my Nike flip flop. Other than that was a good trip.
  • Not that many things to see. Almost every flower was so withered and there were lots of useless bushes. Never go there again.
  • Near gardens tucked inside Koko Head crater. Off the beaten path and definitely not a place that you will stumble upon by accident. There are many interesting plant species located along the loop. Be prepared for very hot conditions though through out the visit.
