  • Place of Martinique, feels pleasantly good. Very well maintained, shows impressive varieties of flowers were trees. And for those who like the height and sensations, don't hesitate to climb on the suspension bridge. Hummingbirds will also take part. !!

  • One of those rare places in the world where nature wrote true poetry. This visit is a delight. Everything is very well kept, the aisles of traffic very thoughts, tropical flowers absolutely stunning and amazing colour. A must in Martinique.

  • Very nice garden, or visitors will discover all the vegetation, trees and flowers to Martinique, in the Caribbean. With the possibility to visit Nature pass, the Zoo and the dwelling of the Carbet. Possibility to stop at the rum hard. Good ride

  • 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
