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 garden was beautiful even though we visited on a drizzly day. Umbrella was provided and the staff were friendly despite being an hour from closing time! The only reason I didn't give this full marks was because it was quite expensive for the amount of time spent. I do admit however that there was no time pressure and you... More

This botanical garden is stunning. Various paths wind through the estate and the views are wonderful. Visitors are provided with a map plus information on all the plants. One of the best we have visited. Pleasant cafe and gift shop.

pathways through the most amazing hillside forest perfect for all the family (not sure how suitable for wheelchairs). have been a number of times and always very peaceful, good to go in the rain as the flowers look even more beautiful. Fab little cafe - try the coffee!

We visited here immediately after Harrison's Cave, about midday. It had been a rainy morning, not really the best beach day, so our group decided to venture inland. It was lightly sprinkling during part of our visit, so wet, but not at all unpleasant. Quite deserted actually. Only one other family was there while we were there. Score! You place... More

Very welcoming atmosphere as you enter. It is suggested that you follow the map given when purchasing your ticket, which is a good idea since the garden is so very large. Specimen are clearly marked and well-tended, and benches are found throughout, situated so as to provide the best possible view. There is also a small booklet available for sale,... More

Beautiful botanical gardens with an atmosphere that will remind you of a backyard garden. The property is extremely well maintained and the size of the gardens will surprise you as you tour the entire garden area. There are several different paths through the gardens and they are all clearly marked in stones along the pathways. A self-guided tour is very... More

We really enjoyed our trip around the Flower Forest. It's $30 BD ($15 US) pp, and you are given a map with various paths and allowed to wander bout the forest at your own pace. There's lots of different plants and trees to see and was nice to do something a bit different whilst on the island. Nice cafe at... More

This is the 2nd time we have visited and it was just as good as the first time which was 4 years ago. We were pretty much the only people there which made it very tranquil and we enjoyed looking around the forest at all the different flowers and plants (and we are not really in to that kind of...
