“Your getaway from the hustle and bustle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Phoenix Parc is located close to the airport and covers 7 hectares. Its home to one of the largest green houses in Europe,which accommodates seven different tropical climates. Within this covered sprawl,you will find exotic ferns,forests and an exquisite collection of orchids.
There are three themed gardens,namely the Thai,Australian and african.. as you meander through the Bamboo forest and an artificial lake which buzzes with life and color, Animals,insects and Black swans will enchant you, as well as,ducks,pelicans and birds. This is a wonderland which boasts waterfalls as well.Kids will be absorbed for hours. Its a stimulating area. Bring very comfortable footware.
Next door is the Asian Arts museum.... perhaps another day...hhmmm?

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Get there just two hours before closing - very well spent time - impressed by all the trees and flowers. Were sorry for parrots who are kept in our view not in a sufficient environment

“Great on a cloudy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We only went because the weather drove us from the beach, but it was well worth it. Reached by bus (1 euro) along from the town, it was spacious, clean, interesting and good value. Little children (and older ones would love it) There is a huge glass house with a wide variety of plants, but also animals.
There is a cafe with a sign forbidding consumption of your own food (and the coffee and ice cream prices there were exorbitant) but I presume that you could picnic elsewhere in the grounds.

MUSICAL FOUNTAINS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD - GREAT!
but the most impressive thing is the price - ONLY 2EUROS
