Rain Forest botanical paradise: the flowers and plants in this garden will take one's breath away, fantastic views from hill top looking out east over the Atlantic and the 'Scotland District of Barbados, benches for resting in secluded shady spots, the peace that one wishes, missing from one's work life is here. Worth more than money, relax and restore the soul...

This place is truly beautiful & very tranquil, provides you with some amazing views not just of the tropical plants, it's one of those places you must visit when staying in Barbados, if you're lucky you may see a monkey or 2.

Wonderful tranquil walk through a well presented forest garden and a great contrast to the bustle of the east coast, once you get near it is well signposted and it needs to be as it is set quite a way down a very small road. I visited with a very keen gardener and she loved the place. I highly recommend... More

We were blown away by the Flower Forest. From the very start this is a gem of a place with fantastic tropical trees to a huge variety of exotic plants with (true to its name) many in flower. We also found many ferns and also several epiphytic species including orchids (some of the orchids were in flower too). The paths... More

We were given a map and it took us about an hour to walk on a concrete park round this lovely garden. The vegetation is really beautiful and the trees were so tall! It was a very peaceful stroll with only four of us from the trip. There are some good view points and there is a visitor area with... More

Nice place for a walk, possibly not for those with walking difficulties as it's set on a hillside, there are proper pathways. Some lovely plants and trees you get a plant guide, and lots of things are identified along the way. you should get to see monkeys in the forest along your way. A nice way to spend a few... More

This is a great way to see some amazing plants in a beautiful setting. Lovely winding paths with tropical foliage. Good way to spend a few hours away from the beach

Wonderful, easy trail with tons of different plants, all labeled. Some viewpoints and little side-path-excursions. Plenty of room for the kids to run. Small gift shop with very nice pottery, as well as other small gifts. Worth a visit.!

How do you explain Paradise to somebody else? This is tucked away, peaceful, quiet but never boring! Monkeys swing in the trees and if careful, you may see some of the other much larger sort. Out of the whole experience that Barbados can offer this was my husbands most favourite place and I think he would have quite happily stayed... More

Take a stroll through the tropical canopy and enjoy the vast array of flowers and fauna. You are provided with a large map and pictures of many of the flowers you can see. Various paths meander through the wilderness and it was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. A little expensive I thought but my wife loved... More
