Diamond Botanical Gardens, Soufriere

#3 of 14 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.

  • We went on the trail and also took in the mineral bath. Saw a few humming birds which was a bonus. All plants trees etc were described by signs. Easy to walk around. Aĺlow a hour if taking the bath.  more »
  • We paid for entry through our tour so not sure of value for money. The guides are independent so expect a tip.Our guide was excellent knew everything including that we had a Carnival in Nottingham.  more »
  • It is a nice walk within a park. Nothing special however. The waterfall is underwhelming, so unless you are a botanist caring to learn about plants, you are better off hiking the pitons.  more »

  • I found the Botanical Gardens amazing. The flowers were so colourful and different and the waterfall was beautiful.
  • Beautiful garden. They've also got three different temperatures of mineral baths that you can soak in.
  • Definitely use a guide, they give so much history/ info behind everything. We took a LOT of pictures. Way too many to put on here!
  • Peaceful is an understatement for this environment, beauty that you can get lost in, so much to see. The natural baths, water naturally warm...
  • 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.
