Would recommend visiting on the way down from visiting Haleakala National Park. The gardens are a nice walk with a good selection of tropical plants. A gift shop with souvenirs and cold drinks is available. There are some hills, but I wouldn't consider it to...More

We drove over to eastern Maui from Lahaina, and found the Kula Gardens. We were very impressed with the layout and all the exotic flowers. $10 per adult to get in, but we received $2 off with our AAA card. The elevation is 3,300 ft....More
