Description

Waimea Valley is a living pu'uhonua for and by kanaka (Hawaiian People). We strive to celebrate and share a vibrant and living Hawaiian culture with the world.

The land managed by our organization is about 1,800 acres in total. We have a beautiful botanical garden spanning about 300 acres from our waterfall to the big wave surfing beach, Waimea Bay. The garden contains over 5,500 species of plants and protects many rare plants from around the world, including some of hawaii's most rare and endangered species. It's not just endangered plants here, we also protect endangered birds and fish in this amazing ecosystem. The back 1,500 or so acres is set up as conservation land where we are actively protecting and rebuilding native forest habitat.

We welcome you to experience the living pu'uhonua(Sanctuary), Waimea Valley and be a part of the team that works to protect this sacred valley. Let's honor and perpetuate Hawai`i’s past, be active stewards of our present and plan for a prosperous and healthy future.
