Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens

Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens are located in Kaneohe, Hawaii.  Four hundred rolling acres on Windward Oahu, the gardens were designed for flood protection, and include a 32-acre lake.  The name Ho'omaluhia means "peaceful refuge", and this garden lives up to its name, with dense tropical forest alternating with open expanses and majestic views of the Ko'olau Mountains.  It is home to many endangered and rare tropical plants.

To find out more about visiting this gem of a place, go to
