In your way to Koko crater stop in the botanical garden. A trail full of all plumeria's colors and smells. You have all kind of plants and perfect spots for great pictures.

We visited Late April so would recommend no earlier as some Frangipani were only just coming into leaf although there were heaps of flowers. Some other trees were still dormant too so perhaps as this time of year is Spring here, go May onwards. The...More

We did not do the whole trail as we did not bring proper footwear. Good walking shoes are a must! I went for the Plumeria flowers and I was not disappointed!

We didn't feel like hiking up the 1000 plus steps to the top of the crater and having been to the top of Diamond Head we felt the views would be similar. Instead we chose to go into the crater to see the Botanical Garden...More
