  • A place for trees, plants, cactus AND what makes the beauty of the island. A bit expensive but it's quiet. Rejuvenating. Good looking. To do!

  • Garden beautiful, playful, very warm, it spends as soon as it comes to Madinina. Hummingbirds are not wild and allow themselves to be photographed with a bit of patience. The flowers, the trees... Superb

  • 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.
  • 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
  • The flowers are so exotic! I'm from Canada.
