They specialize in bonsai and have some very ancient and beautiful trees. There are also sculptures and views across the bay to hold your interest. $8 a piece. On Hwy 16 just south of where it merges with Hwy 3. Worth the time and money.

A must visit for anyone who appreciates plants. Both evergreens and deciduous trees and shrubs. Enjoyed time talking with Dan. Such care and passion for his daily work. Location on the water. Must be headed west and in the right lane. Entrance easy to miss.

We looked on TripAdvisor for things in the area and are so glad we discovered Elandan Gardens! Gorgeous! Spent hours taking in the views and walking through over and over! Best sixteen dollars spent

I discovered Elandan on a daytrip with a friend and have since been back via bicycle. Also, when my southern family came to visit, this is one of the places they raved about from their enjoyable visit.

I went to Elandan knowing about their bonsai trees. Although I'd never really paid attention to bonsai before my visit, I was enthralled by the beauty of these miniature tales of time. It takes a moment to appreciate what you're seeing in addition to the...More

We could have easily spent the entire day at this place! You enter through a very eclectic gift shop, greeted by very friendly puppies. We met the owners who shared their love of Bonsai and a little history of the place. When we entered the...More

There's not much room in the gift shop for a wheel chair, but the garden itself should be accessible.
