We visited the Firefly plantation to tour the gardens. This was perhaps the best trip on our visit to the Grenadines. The tour was done by the head gardener who was very knowledgeable and friendly. He pointed out the different fruit trees and we tried sampling, almonds, coconuts, oranges, lemons and many more unusual fruits. The vegetable plot provides for the hotel and also for the sister hotel in Mustique.
The plantation used to grow sugar cane and also cotton. Some of the buildings used for processing can be seen.
The location is beautiful with the grounds leading down to the sea. It is a very quiet and peaceful place and the bar and restaurant were tastefully designed and furnished. The cocktail list used many home-grown ingredients.
A visit to Firelfy is highly recommended if you want to get a flavour of the real Caribbean, not just the inside of your all-inclusive clone resort.
