It's a long climb up to the top from the parking area on Highway 3, but the views of the harbor below are impressive. The garden itself was much smaller than expected.

WE know this place must be gorgeous at times- but we climbed their 200 steps and very little to see. There is a parking lot where you do not have to climb to enter! Asticou Gardens next doc was in its prime!

Enjoyed the climb and the view. Also the gardens were spectacular as was the history of the place. Truly a find.

While we were in the Asticou Azalea Garden, we learned about this garden, which is "around the corner." Now it is atop the Asticou Terraces, & if you park on the road, you will walk up 200 steps of the terraces to enter the garden...More
