The garden is really nice and worth going there. The price is a bit too expensive though. Next to the garden there's quite a nice restaurant.

You must see it once you are here.
We took the bus which was ok, though we were the only non-locals on it.

Very nice garden with surprising flower & tree species.
Walking throughout the garden is a peaceful experience, with encounters with rare flowers and little ponds.

This is a great destination for a cruise stop in Martinique. Local bus takes about 20 minutes for 3 euros and entry is further 12 euros. The gardens are beautiful and really well maintained. There is a tree bridge which is fun. The views are stunning. Highly recommend. Easy to do by yourself rather than on an official cruise excursion.

First of all you are greated by the hummingbird feeding station, amazing. However if you are in a group I would suggest moving on and returning later when not so crowded the birds always seem to be there.
The garden is lovely, so many exotics in the middle of a forest, almost jungle, lots of lotus lillies and a tree top walk too.

We visited on a partle cloudy day in Martinique. We used the local bus service, 3 euros per person, dropped off right outside Balata Gardens entrance. Stunning views, lovely walks on good paths, but may be a little steep for some. We saw the famous Porcelain rose, and lots of other tropical plants. best of all was the humming birds, so beautiful!

Exciting drive up into the rain forest! Then arrived at this beautiful botanical garden. Easy to walk around and follow the trail. Saw amazing plants. Loved the suspended walk way up and through the tree tops. Humming birds drinking nectar from very pretty containers. A must visit place!
