  • Could be a great garden if it were given some TLC. I would only recommend it to avid botanists. Was difficult to get to by bus, so drive if you can. Amenities consisted of a horrible port-a-loo, in ne...  more »

  • We drove in and walked to the right of the parking lot which started us on the Loop Trail. It leads straight through and long grove of plumeria trees which were blooming like crazy in every color. Fal...  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.
  • We did the koko crater arch hike. It was a rainy day but we were determined to go. Luckily, we finished our hike before it started pouring. Let's just say, it's probably best to go on a drier day. Still, the views were amazing and it's definitely a hike I'm going to do more than once. Note: We parked at Sandy Beach and hiked up. I think that was to avoid getting a fine from parking at Halona Blowhole. We also started our hike going down where the "Mile 15" sign is and hiked back up. It was a bit more challenging. If you want the easier and more straightforward way, keep walking past the sign to other side of the rocks.
