You'll find this garden near the Saline-les-Bains. If you are visiting this exotic garden you will love it, because here there are almost all species of Reunion Island and Madagascar. take your time because there is much to see and photograph: plants, flowers, mosses long hair, traveler's trees huddled with each other as one big family, huge palms, fragrant flowering...

A nice place to while away an hour or 2. Ask the staff to point out where the chamelions are. A guide book is available in English.

We had an afternoon to walk around here, and it was well worth it. Gorgeous lotus pond and descriptive plaques for all the trees and shrubbery. Very small but nice gift area at check in area. You've gotta park pretty far away and walk down a little dirt road to get there, but it is totally worth it.

Interesting and well sign posted botanical garden with much appreciated english guidebook provided. You can also ask for a guide to walk you through. Lovely ambience and a very pretty little botanical garden.

The place has lots of potential but is badly maintained. Lots of the plants are dry and at some places there are name tags without plants next to them. On the plus side they offer guide books in 3 languages. With a bit of tlc the place can be fixed up very nicely.

Small garden with a nice and relaxing atmosphere - no more, no less. Loved the water area. Not busy. Spend an hour no more escaping from the beach...

Very nice park with loads of interesting trees and flowers. It is well kept and an oasis of quiet. Found it very relaxing there.
