Stroll through Diamond Falls 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 had a super hour or two here, and tagged on to a small tour group with an excellent guide. Stunning display of interesting plants and trees, well explained. The waterfall is something else!  more »
  • Wonderful experience for us and the kids. So great to learn about all the wonderful foods that you can grow in St Lucia. Cocoa, nutmeg, grapefruit, cashews, avocados, coconuts etc,  more »
  • We walked 350 m east from our stay in central Soufriere to first see the old mill complex that these gardens are part of. It begins with the old Copra Mill along the shaded lane to the Aqueduct...  more »

  • Wonderful botanical garden with lots of tropical plants and flowers. Diamond waterfall is worth seeing but you can't go in the water. The sulfur bath pools are extra (about 20 EC) but really worth doing, they're quite warm but a good way to cool off.
  • Very beautiful. Lots to see. If you come here and are approached by someone outside the gates. They might be a tour guide. If they are, ask how much first. They way you know if it is worth the price. Are guide was very informative.
  • Took us about 45 minutes to take a nice stroll around the garden. The diamond fall is worth seeing. Friendly and courteous staff at the ticket office, not too pushy about obtaining a tour guide, which I really appreciate. The gift shop offers some local artwork and handmade jewelry.
  • Nice pace of garden, lots of specimens unique to the Caribbean. Well set up to be a relaxing venture. Great for pictures, in a dark atmosphere. Breezy area, cool and calm. Springs directed to baths and are available to bathe in, small waterfall at the end of the path. Wheelchair accessible to the baths and not to the upper garden, but can always take the second entrance to see that area. Tickets are required to enter, over the age of 12 is considered adult, half price for children.
  • Very beautiful Botanical gardens stuffed away in Soufrière, St. Lucia. We enjoyed this stop on a half day adventure throughout the town. Definitely worth the stop in!
