A must see on one's trip to St. Lucia...the beautiful colours of the waterfall are captivating.. you are not allowed to bathe in the waterfall for your own good but there are mineral pools for baths...the garden holds mystical charms and there are many nooks for seating while you take in the plant and animal life around you.

Don't be put off by being pounced on by 'tour guides'. These guys are only paid a 'tip' at your discretion, but ours (Alexander) was easily worth our ten US dollar bill. Well laid out, even though the waterfall is a bit of an anti-climax. Shop, toilets and restaurant all in site.

We were very pleased that we had decided to take the long trip of the Diamond Botanical Gardens. The place was absolutely breathtaking! Being from Maine, we were amazed by the trees, vines, plants and flowers. Our least favorite part of the tour was the waterfall. However, we really wanted to see the the flowers, etc. and learn something about... More

My husband and I toured the botanical gardens during our land and sea tour on our honeymoon! We enjoyed hearing about the different trees, plants, flowers and fruits they harvested ! Having a tour guide helps the most as they can teach you more about each plant then as you drive or explore more of the island you will remember... More

We bought a ticket for the gardens and the mineral bath which also includes access to the diamond fall. We did not book thebguide but went on our own as we had visited other gardens before. The gardens are easy accessible and maintained nicely with name signs for many plants. The walkway is paved and it is an easy walk.... More

We stopped here as part of a Soufriere land tour following a morning sail and snorkel. The gardens are pretty and have a good variety of plants with many flowering trees and shrubs. Bugs were not a problem. The falls were pretty unimpressive.

The gardens were absolutely beautiful! Birds flowers and lizards galore. The waterfall was very cool as well. They have a nice gift shop too with snacks and drinks.

We had Alexander as a tour guide and he was very knowledgable about the plants and their uses. The falls are pretty though you can't get it. Very pretty and we could have easily spent more time here just appreciating the national beauty of St. Lucia.
