Enjoyed seeing the assortment of spices, plants, and trees. The price was affordable, the staff was helpful and the main trails were not too challenging. You had the option of a more vigorous climb but it was too much for me to want to do.

We had the place to ourselves and walked around all the paths. Plants were labeled, but not much was in bloom at the time of our visit. We hiked to the top of the mountain, which had switch backs and was quite steep. Signage for trails could be a little better to let us know where to go. The view... More

It was a lovely little hike through marvellous trees and flowers.We learned about Cacao beans and the process of making chocolate.By the time we got to the top if the mountain there was a beautiful view of the Little French Cay and the Caribbean Sea.

Decided to check out the botanical gardens, at first we were going to do a self guided tour, but we changed our minds and got the guide. He turned out to be the owner, very knowledgeable and has a passion for nature and historical facts. Did the trail to the top, need to exercise extra caution if it is rainy... More

Beautiful botanical garden with trail to top with great view of ocean and Anthony's key. Neat to see cocoa pods and ginger in bloom. Bring a poncho ($3) at Anthony's key resort or light raincoat for downpours

We visited in Jan but not much was in bloom. Jungle is hot and humid. View from the top is good but the trail up is draining and not for the mobility challenged. More signage is needed to tell what everything is.

Staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and witty. The gardens are well stocked, and laid out, although there were pelnty of people visiting, it never felt crowded.

This botanical garden was a 10 minute walk from our hostel. It was nice to venture out into local land such as this botanical garden. The entry costs $10 per person. They give you a map of the area and for an additional $10 per person you can hire a guide. The day we went, it was raining but they... More

We stumbled upon this garden and had a pleasant 1.5 hour stroll/hike. The flatter section takes you past some labeled trees and plants including bananas, ginger, cocoa and apparently an elusive breadfruit tree. The grounds were well cared for with multiple benches/shade spots. We did not have a guide, but it may have been interesting as it looked like they... More

We loved our hike here and all the plants you get to see. The hike to the top takes about a half hour, maybe more if you're stopping to look at everything, and it isn't terribly challenging. It feels like you're in the middle of the rainforest at some points. Only criticism is the map could be a little more... More
