‘Āina Kai, "Lands by the Sea" in Hawaiian, is ever-evolving
and unique among the world's botanical gardens. Only here, at the
crossroads of the Pacific, will you find the particular rare palette
of flora, fauna, land, water, and climate that inspired the founders
of these gardens to embark upon their one-of-a-kind creative endeavor.
Spanning 240 acres, Na ‘Āina Kai is a living
mosaic of diverse and bounteous gardens, a hardwood plantation,
a moss- and fern-draped canyon, and a pristine sandy beach stretching
between a meadow and the aquamarine waters of the Pacific.
Gracing the gardens and wild areas throughout this once-private estate are
more than 90 bronze sculptures, one of the nation's largest collections.
