We stopped by whilst on a safari tour and we were not disappointed, even though it was raining, as it is up a hill, and gets plenty of rain during the wet season. The fresh pineapple juice was outstanding, and squeezed in front of us while we waited. We did jam tasting, which you could buy if you wished, but... More

This site is a welcome relief from the heat as it is high on a hillside which also provides for great lagoon views while you sip away on a fresh juice and sample locally made jams. Also on offer (for tasting and/or purchase) are fresh and dried fruits, exotically flavoured ice creams and, of course, vanilla. For the flower lovers... More

This is a great little place to visit while circling the island. (Some tours also come here.) Great view. There's a stand selling great juices and jams. Lots of tropical plants but highlight is the vanilla tent. We were hoping for an explanation of how vanilla is grown but that wasn't available, but did see the beans growing. (It's an... More

We rented a scooter to drive around the island & our first stop was the tropical garden, which is situated on a very steep, narrow road on the top of the hill. We couldn't make it up even a 3rd of the way on the scooter, so we had to leave it behind & hiked up the rest. I would... More

We stopped here on our tour with Franky Frank. Steep, narrow, bumpy ride up. Don't think I'd attempt it in a rental personally. Yummy jams sold here along with assortment of souvenirs and vanilla beans. The garden was small and view was pretty,mouth nothing like Magic Mountain views.

We visited here on the tour with FrankyFrank, it was a lovely place, we did some marmalade tasting and learnt how vanilla is grown. They also made me a drink as I was feeling unwell. Very kind people and a beautiful place to visit.

We have to echo comments by others. We turned off the main road onto an extremely bumpy unpaved road for a few hundred yards. We then started up a steep hill that had two concrete paths. It was barely wide enough for our rental car which struggled to climb the hill. Once on top, the views are great as are... More

Sure, there's a steep driveway, but so what? It's not ridiculously dangerous... just take it slow. Once you're at the top, which is not far at all, you'll have some of the finest views of the bay and ocean and mountains. And... a delicious jam tasting! We bought jam and Monoi oil as well as vanilla beans to bring back... More

After driving up a very steep driveway you are treated to fantastic views of Oponuhu Bay. Beautiful tropical plants, flowers and fruit trees. Bought some delicious icecream (taro flavour is good!). Juices and fruit and jams available. Perhaps a short tour to show you what plants are what may have enhanced this experience but well worth visiting
