  • Very nice garden with great plants. The highlight is the suspension bridge. Unfortunately, we had no chance of that but will be very beautiful in clear because of a lengthy rain shower.

  • Finally it was raining, we hesitated, but home got us a ticket valid 15 days in case, we would not end the ballad cause rain. The rain left us alone and despite the somewhat high price of entry it's worth: Park, bamboos, and the ballad in quiet and safe trees beautiful ballad to do

  • It's that 5 stars is the max, but really Balata Garden deserves 6 out of 5 stars! A great place to visit if you like flowers, trees and nature in general. The entrance fee is pretty steep, but very well worth it! A must-visit, if you're on Martinique for your vacation.
  • The garden is very big and nice. You can see a lot of different plants and trees there. If you rent an audio guide, you'll learn a lot of the history of the garden. If you want to see all of it, you would need at least 2 hours.
  • It's a nice garden with a lot of tropical flowers all together
  • A very beautiful place. In addition to many different flowers there are a few places to watch hummingbirds.
  • One of the best botanical garden I ever seen
