Ever year, Waimanalo Country Farms opens up their doors to let visitors come marvel at their beautiful sunflower fields on the east side of Oahu. Well, for seven years now, Dane and I have completely missed seeing it. The sunflower bloom only lasts a certain number of days and once it’s done – it’s done. So, when we saw that the Waimanalo Sunflower Field was in bloom, we hightailed it over there to visit!
Visiting The Waimanalo Country Farms Sunflower Field
We visited on Fourth of July, so it was pretty crowded, but it was also the first day it was open, so I think a lot of people had the same idea as us. Entry was $3 for adults and kids got in for free. There was a small area for food (lots of delicious looking lemonade, too!) and a ton of activities for kids like a petting zoo and a small train that went around the sunflowers.
We enjoyed walking up and down the rows of flowers and snapping photos. Their Facebook page says that you can even book photoshoots with professional photographers there, you just have to let them know ahead of time, and plan ahead for it. We saw a ton of people doing photoshoots, so I’m not sure how heavily that is enforced, and they have various props around the field you can use/pose alongside.
Sunflower Fields In Hawaii
In any case, we had a great day and I’m glad we finally got to see the sunflowers! It’s a great activity for the whole family, you just have to go when they say the sunflowers are in bloom or you’ll miss them. Take it from me who has missed them for almost a decade 😉
