Went to the arboretum and paid for a guided tour of the plants as well as the hydroponic veggies. After paying the girl for both tours I stood around for a bit and because nobody... read more

Went to the arboretum and paid for a guided tour of the plants as well as the hydroponic veggies. After paying the girl for both tours I stood around for a bit and because nobody showed up to guide me, I headed off on my own. The arboretum and the grounds were beautiful and well maintained. It was easy to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this exotic and tropical paradise! Not only were the gardens beautiful and we learned a lot, but perhaps the best part of all was that we were served up a plate of the exotic fruits that were in season including the miracle berry which changed a very sour lime into the most sweetly flavored...

A small but very pretty garden with a variety of plants, especially fruit trees and bushes. Very attentive and friendly guide. Transportation to and from was flawless and on the way back they gave us a little tour of the island. Recommended if you're interested in gardening or just want to look at the greenery. They have a small snack... More

We visited the blue harbour arboretum last week and we were blown away by the many varieties of fruits and fruit trees and other species of vegetationand food such as cashew trees and the hydroponic lettuce that is grown in this spot. This is good news for sustainable development on the island. It is about a 45 minute drive from... More

Very nice spot. We did the self guided tour. Most plants and trees are clearly marked. If you are staying on the island, be sure to buy their fresh lettuce and herbs.....yum!

What a beautiful place! Excellent tour guides and spaces. A relaxing few hours spent off the cruise ship. Had the place to ourselves. Just do it! We did both the arboretum and the hydroponic garden. Very interesting.

My wife and I visited in Jan 2015. The tour of the property was definitely interesting. We learned about the history of the gardens, the owners, the plants and trees, etc. The best part was the freshly cut fruits and jam at the end of the tour! Highly recommended!

We did a self-guided tour but our taxi driver walked with us. The plants are labeled with names. The greenhouse area is like Eden with a little waterfall. We also had the opportunity to see a few caged animals. The unexpected finale was a plate of different fruits to try and the miracle berry (Stevia). Very relaxing and nice way... More

I made the mistake of not wearing proper shoes -- make sure you wear either hiking sandals or tennis shoes. This place was beautiful and very serene. The little gift shop/ café located outside was lovely. I actually took one of the most peaceful naps sitting at a table there while my boyfriend continued to walk around. The gardens and... More

Our tour guide from Bodden Tours brought us here and we got to wander through the arboretum and look at all the beautiful gardens. Then we got to taste some of the local tropical fruit.
