  • Very nice place just lack of communication on the fact that the zoo don't be next, we thought to make a stone two strokes and took the garden of Balata package + zoo simply he we not been told that the zoo is not stacked in the same place that the garden. No problem for to get back but knowing that I would have preferred the zoo

  • Beautiful gardens with a good sized walk and plenty to take in and explore. Loved the high rope bridge and the playground for my boy was great too. Lovely little cafe joined onto this place. Highly recommend this place!
  • Probably the most beautiful gardens I've ever visited. A manicured part of the jungle rich in foliage and flowers accompanied by many beautiful humming birds made it the most memorable part of my holiday. Expect and enjoy the rain from one of the many shelters; it stops as quickly as it starts. Very easy and cheap to get to by bus from Rue André Aliker.
  • If you love gardens and are in Martinique go to Balata Gardens! Take the time to walk the rope foot bridge and enjoy the view of the rain forest canopy. Bring your camera. The flowers and hummingbirds are stunningly beautiful.
  • Absolutely beautiful. One of the highlights of my trip to Martinique. I would recommend it to anyone.
  • Beautiful botanical garden; there are not any greenhouses, because whohe garden is one. Walking on the tree-top sidewalk is not worth of waiting (dont see anything what a could not from below).
