Na ‘Aina Kai is reopening for tours on Wednesday July 22, 2020. 

We will offer one tour each week.  It will be a self-guided, walking tour of the Formal Gardens. Cart tours are not available at this time. As restrictions are lifted we will resume our customary guided tours.


The Formal Gardens will be open for self-guided walks every Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to noon. 

The Formal Gardens are graced by Shower Tree Park, Ka’ula Lagoon with its plunging waterfall and tropical island, a Japanese teahouse, a Desert Garden, a Palm Garden, and more than 30 bronze sculptures.  We will have volunteers at various locations in the Formal Gardens to answer questions. The cost is $10 per person and children four (4) and under are free.  

Na ‘Aina Kai has implemented the following measures:

  • Space is limited and tours must be booked in advance by calling the Visitor Center at (808) 828-0525.  No walk-ins will be allowed.
