Hawaii Tropical Botanical GardenThe splendid Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden is located just 7 miles north of Hilo on the fertile Hamakua Coast. The Garden’s trails wind through a variety of environments offering a diverse view of more than 2,000 different plant species, waterfalls,

back-dropped against the natural beauty of the coast. This is your chance to see rare views of Onomea Bay. You will see a richly diverse variety of plants and blooming flowers, orchids, ferns, palms, and many more.

African Mask plant at Hawaii Botanical GardenWe thoroughly enjoyed walking through the garden. There was such a natural and fertile feeling to the place - and the smells were incredibly fresh and fragrant. This garden showcases the dramatic beauty of the Hamakua Coast and is a must-see Heliconia Plant at the Botanical Gardenattraction. This is a photographer and nature lover’s paradise!
