This is the butterflies own lush tropical garden playground! Here you will see hundreds of rare and exotic butterflies fluttering freely around you. The guide will identify different species, point out courtship and mating displays and tell butterfly facts and stories.

Reviewed November 13, 2012

I enjoyed The Butterfly Farm and learned a lot. The butterflies and moths were beautiful and the tour guide was knowledgeable, informative and happy to answer questions. I am glad we went, but I did think the 15 Euro price was a bit steep.

“Instants in the butterfly nest”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Interesting guided tour of the local varieties of butterflies to be found on the island, in French or English. Walk around in the great "flight area" surrounded by giant blue monarchs, owl buterflies and moths. Kids loved it.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Haven't been there in a few years, but it is really interesting. At the time, butterflies were just returning since they were wiped out by a hurricane.
