Gorgeous groves with lots of color & water falls. Very peaceful, tranquil place with nice restaurant. Get the grilled shrimp. Well worth the price.

Beautiful, peaceful park. This was one of our favorite sites. Our tour guide was great. We enjoyed learning a bit of Bahamian history on our tour. Definitely worth the trip.

Everyone in our group of 7 liked the Garden of Groves. We went in the morning and had a guided tour my our taxi / van driver, Cat. That was especially nice because he gave us some insider (local) info on the plants. It was full bloom season (Feb 2015), but still every pretty and well maintained.

Out tour guide, Micheal, was very courteous and informative. He told us a lot about "bush medicine" - natural remedies created from local plants on the island, along with the history of the island.

For the most part I enjoyed it. The Labyrinthe was very well done which my family did. The wind chimes were a nice touch and the flower bushes around it were nice...the flowers were Francipani which smell lovely. It is quite a nice oasis in the middle of of the Island and as my husband is in a wheelchair it... More
