Farm Nature / Park
You’ll think you’re inside a lush tropical rainforest at The Butterfly Farm (La Ferme des Papillons), as flowers and trees surround you and butterflies fly overhead. Hundreds of exotic butterflies, from many species across the globe, fly freely in the enclosure, which simulates their natural habitat. Join the guided tour and not only learn, but be shown the evolutionary cycle of butterflies as they evolve from microscopic eggs to strange caterpillars, and eventually pupae. Refreshments and a souvenir store can be found onsite. Wear bright colored clothing, and maybe a butterfly will land on you.

  • Our family stopped by this attraction on our way to Orient Beach. The tour was informative. The butterflies are beautiful. I learned a lot. Our pass is good for a week so we can stop back. It was kind...  more »
  • The Butterfly Farm offered a small group tour for about 15 minutes, then allowed us to watch and interact with butterflies as they flew around us or landed on us. The cost seemed a bit pricy, however,...  more »
  • On the road to a quiet beach there is this nice garden where you can sit and relax seeing the butterflies chase eachother. The entrance fee is a bit steep, USD 15, but follow-up visits are free.  more »

  • Great little 1 hour visit. Tour is excellent and the variety of butterflies inside is impressive. Be sure to have a taxi return or a way of contacting one, it is off the main path.
  • Family's visiting Villa Oyster Pearl often get burned out by day 3, need a little relax time. The Butterfly farm is the perfect spot, not too far away, not too expensive and even the grumpiest of kids loves a Butterfly landing on them! The site is cool and calming with hundreds of brightly colored butterflies from all around the world as well as the Giant Atlas Moth. We could have spent a good 2 hours there but it closes its doors at 3.30pm and we had to, reluctantly, leave. Your ticket is good for as long as your holiday so you can go back again and again. Wear scent or fresh perfume, the butterfly's love it! Originally posted on Villa Oyster Pearl Facebook page June 8th 2017
  • Could spend all day here. Very tranquil. So many beautiful butterflies! When you visit join the mini tour, very informative.
  • The family and I had a pleasant experience here. Learn so much about butterflies from around the world. The tour guide is never knowledgeable and very helpful. Customer service was top notch!
  • Very knowledgeable staff. Excellent tour.
