  • Really cool place to visit. Interesting information and honestly by the highlight of the visit was speaking to the local who worked there. His knowledge of herbs, was really enlightening. If you like walking trails, being educated on history and science, this place is for you.
  • Beautiful native plants- well designed and an excellent place to visit for all plant lovers!
  • If you love #nature this is definitely the place you would want to visit whenever you # visit #Eleuthera.... I have seen this place being advertised in a local magazine 'The Eleutheran' and I've promised myself once I got some free time I'm going to # explore this property, so on Saturday 13 May, 2017 I've finally gotten the opportunity and this place had exceeded my expectation.... It was an amazing experience from the welcome center there are friendly staff that greet you, give instructions, and suggestions, even A few warnings especially if you're not a fan of reptiles because their are #native #snakes wandering around the property but fortunately we don't have #PoisonoisSnakes in #TheBahamas but what I love most about the plant preserve they have most of the plants Cleary marked with signs and information about the plants if they're good for medicinal use or making teas etc. I highly recommend that you stop by by the way there are several rest spots you can stop along the paths and enjoy the sounds of birds chirping or at my favorite spot the waterfall it's just breathtaking!!!
  • A very nice place to bring your family and friends to go on nature walks see native and endemic plants and other cool stuff.😃
  • Beautiful place to walk the trails and enjoy the Bahamas nature. Extremely well groomed and managed, this is a treasure​, but be prepared to walk.
