#1 of 44 in Parks in Barbados
Explore the lush tropical grounds of Hunte's Gardens, a manicured, sculpted plot that works to retrain the jungle's unruliness. Stop at various seats and soak up the atmosphere of various mini-gardens, and take time to observe hummingbirds questing for nectar and lizards basking in the sun. On your way around the gardens, be sure to stop and refresh yourself with complimentary homemade rum punch and freshly squeezed fruit juices, which are prepared by the gardens' friendly and passionate owner.

  • We visited in late November after Anthony Hunte gave us his card in Holetown, asking us to come and visit his garden. So we did! And it was amazing. Anthony has spent many years developing this garden...  more »

  • To call it heaven on earth would not do it justice. Anthony Hunte is a visionary, and he has put together something truly inspiring here. Located in a sinkhole near the centre of the island, this medium sized Botanical Garden could be rushed through in 15 minutes if one was so inclined, but that's not really the point of the place. It is meant to be savored and reflected upon. There are little resting places through the garden appointed with antique furniture for you to sit, relax, reflect and take in the view. There is as much to hear as there is to see; birds and monkeys sing their songs lustily all day while piano or or opera music gently wafts through the garden. This garden is densely planted Ave uses tropical plants of every description. All sizes, shapes, colors and textures are represented here. You'll probably never a large variety of flowers, leaf forms and colors, as you will here. Cover is US$15 and worth every penny. Come here, stay for a few hours in silence taking it all in. Before you leave, head up to the patio of the old house for a drink with Anthony!
  • Not been yet but wanting to on our cruise stop in Barbados in January. Please somebody tell me what is the recommended way to get there? local bus ? taxi? or are the local tours safe and dependable to book online ? the cruiseship tour does NOT include Hunte's gardens.... please guide me somebody ! many thanks.

  • Beautiful garden, lots of unique flowers from all over the world. Anthony (the owner) is very nice and welcoming. Had some good lemonade and carrot cake at the end!
  • The landscaping/sink hole layout of this place makes it stand out from any other gardens I've been to. Photos don't do this aspect of it justice, more than worth the US$15 entrance fee. We saw hummingbirds, monkeys, lizards on top of all the fabulous tropical plants!
  • An amazingly tranquil tropical garden, definitely worth a visit (even if you've already been to the Flower forest as it's different). Never been anywhere like it. It's like 'The Lost World' although in a sink hole rather than plateau; you expect a tyrannosaurus to pop through the vegetation any time! Stunning array of lush plants and flowers accompanied by birdsong.
