We visited Moorea Tropical Gardens twice in March. First time we came during Franckyfranck tour. We had jam tasting: very original jams made of tropical fruits growing here in the garden at least 7 different kinds, I bought two: pineapple-vanilla and mango ($5 each). Here you also can buy vanilla ($10 & $15), water and freshly squeezed pineapple juice ($5)... More

The plantation is on a high hill directly above Moorea's Opunohu bay. The view of the bay is spectacular, especially when there isn't some cruise ship in it to ruin the view. The garden itself is charming if not particularly large. The highlight of the visit was definitely the jam taste test that is offered at the little stand in... More

A charming site to visit. Lovely grounds with all types of fruits and tropical plants growing. Highlights are of course the vanilla orchids growing, which the owner pollinates by hand daily to grow vanilla beans that take months to mature and months more of hand rubbing and drying to cure. Absolutely delicious homemade jams are available for sample and purchase... More

This was included as part of a planned excursion from the cruise ship. The guide was knowledgeable about the plants and the island history. Included was a chance to take photos of the beautiful flowers, learn how vanilla is cultivated and taste samples of the fruit jams created from the island fruits. The shop area has seats and tables so... More

Nice little garden with tropical fruits. It is nice to go around with the staff who will provide explanations. They sell lovely confitures (jam), the ananas-vanille (pineapple-vanilla) is lovely. It is a nice place to come to see the sunset.

Great detour if you have a vehicle. Lovely garden and great photo opportunity while having a freshly made juice. The ladies do terrific jam and there is a vanilla plantation to look at if you have never seen one. The down side is the road up, narrow and steep and not much scope for passing, worth the effort though.

We walked from the Hilton to the Tropical Garden and it took about 30-45 min. It was a little hard to find but there is a little yellow sign that points towards the uphill garden. I would suggest wearing comfortable shoes because I made the mistake of sandals and found it hard to trek the uphill, rocky path. The views... More

We went as part of a tour (FranckyFranck), so had lots of laughs and very good explanation. The jams for tasting were good and we brought one. Good to go to, but if I had missed it I would not have been sad. Like a lot of things was not very well sign posted, so would not have found it... More

Yes Moorea Tropical Garden is all this at the same time: you can either hike up the hill or drive up (scooter be aware that it's quite steep). There are in Papetoai, between the the 2 bays, closer to Opunohu bay though. Nice sotp while going around the island. On weekends, you can have a local lunch (maa tahiti), some... More
