Overview
More
We are open. Phantasea reopened on Nov. 10, 2017. We are open from 9:00 - 5:00, Fri, Sat, Sun, holidays, and by special appointment. The two acre garden is as beautiful as ever with blooming orchids, bromeliads, lilies, palms, and more. Outstanding views from Magens Bay to Tortola, St. John and the cruise ship harbor. Come and relax in the calming serenity of nature as lizards scurry about and butterflies and birds fly throughout the garden. Stop and rest in our Balinese gazebo or at our other seating areas. Visit our resident wildlife - parrots, tortoises, peacocks and chickens - and learn about the garden plants and inhabitants with our interpretive signs. Approx. 45 minutes - one hour average time to visit. Great for children and families. Cold water and tropical juices for sale. Cash and credit cards accepted. Easy to find, just follow the signs posted along the roadways with the bright pink flowers.
