Very nice view, very pleasant gardens, very relaxed setting with a variety of fruits and drinks available. Certainly worth a visit.

This garden is accessible by car on a very rocky and difficult road, be prepared for some "sporty" driving. Alternately you can go by walk but it would take you at least 30-45min one-way. When we arrived the place was completely empty except a very old lady in a small shop. She was outstanding and very nice with us, she... More

Myself and my partner popped here mid afternoon and loved it so much for it's views and surroundings that we came back in the evening for the sunset alone! The lady who runs this place is very informative, sweet, charming, knowledgeable, and helpful and she sells her lovely homemade jams here - in some flavours you could only dream of!... More

Up a really steep drive, but worth the walk or drive. We visited on a Saturday but were lucky to get a lunch as it is normally only available on Fridays. Amazing value for a sampler plate of local cuisine such as MahiMahi, tapioca, taro, coconut bread, chicken done in banana leaves, poisson Cru and also a large fresh fruit... More

We actually ate here two Fridays in a row - that's how much I loved it! Very interesting to compare the typical food here with what we eat in Hawaii. You can see vanilla growing in their shade house and they have all sorts of conserves for sale. They were so super nice when we showed up the first time... More

Although not well publicised, this place is a little gem, especially when you book for lunch on a Friday. For 15 USD you get a full plate of local cuisine - BBQ Mahi Mahi, Poisson Cru, tapioca, taro, chicken curry, coconut bread, and a banana and tapioca dessert - PLUS a large glass of a delicious fresh fruit juice, in...

We visited this awsome place in Moorea. You can walk and discover so many plants and its all free to visit! Then you can taste local products (jam, honey). You also can book for the tahitian meal during weekends. Perfect view up there, really enjoyed.

The gardens are part way up one side of one of the mountains and are a small family owned operation with beautiful plants, delicious juice and ice cream and an amazing view. You can also get local food there on certain evenings for a reasonable price.

Nothing super spectacular, but worth the hour or two we invested. Neat waterfalls that are a tricky hike to get to, but very cool.

This was up a steep road, and off the beaten path. The view from the garden is beautiful, and the lush, tropical forest surrounding it provides many great photos. They grow vanilla beans up there. Have someone explain the process to you and you will understand why real vanilla is so expensive. It's for good reason! There's a lovely woman... More
