Diamond Botanical Gardens, Soufriere

4.1
#3 of 12 in Parks in Soufriere
Stroll through Diamond Botanical Gardens, the oldest botanical garden on the island. Take a tranquil walk, alone or with a guide, along the verdant pathways, lined with lush trees, shrubs, and tropical flowers. Admire the diverse plant life and colorful birds that inhabit the gardens until you reach a natural gorge deep within the canopy of trees and flowers. There, mineral springs form a picturesque waterfall, while stone baths built for King Louis XVI provide enough space for refreshing dips.

    If you are into horticulture then this is a must do! Many varieties that I have never encountered elsewhere. All the guides are volunteers, but know what they are talking about. It is privately owned....  more »

    What a wonderful botanical garden. Lush gorgeous foliage and lovely flowers. Danny Boy was our tour guide and very knowledgeable and lots of fun too! If you love taking photo's of flowers then this is the place for you. A very relaxing, laid back tour.

    Solid gardens, a bit small, but beautiful flowers. Recommend not doing guided tours but walking on your own much more intimate and enjoyable

    Very beautiful and peaceful garden. I visited as part of a tour packages. Great place for a nice relaxing stroll. The waterfall is very unique with its gray sulfur waters. There's also tourist shop with snacks and other local items for sale.

    A most enjoyable and inexpensive tour! The gardens were absolutely gorgeous. We toured at our own pace, took tons of photos of the beautiful flowers and plant life. A light to moderate hike. You won't be disappointed!

    Beautiful grounds. If you're in St. Lucia, it's a must visit. Be sure to use a local guide as they'll educate you and give you a very informative tour. Well worth it! Find 'Alexander the Great' or Denis if you can.
