    I went to the exotic garden without delirious enthusiasm. This has been a great time and I would recommend: the garden is beautiful full of varied plants located for many years. The cacti greenhouse is - in my opinion - better dressed than garden plants garden greenhouses (well, I'm not an expert either). It does not hurt, it's the magnificent view of the Bay. In short, if you like the gardens.

    We just wanted to enjoy a walk around an exotic garden and were not disappointed as it was really pleasant.  more »

    We went there the third week of July and there wasn't a lot of flowers. Enough exotic, however, particularly in the area or is of large arborescent ferns that we we see on the coast is Australia. A bit expensive though.

    Beautiful plants and flowers. You can spend up to two hours looking around the gardens. Walking up the steps to the top of the rocks is well worth it because you get amazing views over Roscoff. It costs 18 euros for a family of four to get in.

    Stopped here with a bit of time to kill before getting ferry. Expensive to enter with 2A and 4K's. Not buggy friendly either. Take path to the side and you will find a quiet picnic place and a little stoney beach for the kids to explore.
