Glorious gardens set within beautiful surroundings. We got here easily by local bus, enjoying the scenic drive up. The gardens are well set out and there is a route around that is easy to follow so you see all the highlights of the gardens. Great canopy walk which adds another perspective to your visit.

Wonderful place well set filled with peace and harmony. I am a définit fan. Photographers will also enjoy their time in the garden. Kids will find their share with the trees track and the games. After visiting you should definitely have a meal at their restaurant located at the entrance on the side of the car park, one of the... More

We hired a car and drove up the centre of the island. You get to see these lovely gardens which are set out very well and blend in with the surrounding countryside. If you arrive reasonably early you should get to see the hummingbirds at the feeders - a great display. We then drove around the area soaking up the... More

It is a must seen place if you visit Martinique. The atmosphere of this garden is amazing due to the wonderful flowers and hummingbirds.

Superb tropical garden. The suspended tree walkway was scary but worth doing. Great variety of trees and spectacular flowers.

We visited the garden as part of a cruise excursion. The garden was a good size - you didn't have to feel like you had to walk around for hours and hours. It was beautiful and we loved looking at the different plants and flowers. A very enjoyable visit!

Had a wonderful three hours or so, wandering around the botanical gardens. We took an accoustiguide which added some fun and extra information. Even though it get's a lot of visitors, it doesn't feel crowded. Especially if you can set your own pace (slowly) and have time to wait for that great shot. We were lucky to see a tarantula... More

Beautifully set botanical garden with local and Asian flora. Very picturesque and almost surreal. Theres a suspended canopy walkway through a part of the garden but very easy and highly recommend. Restaurant on site too but we didn't visit
