  • If you like flowers and vegetation, this is a place for you in Martinique to go to. Firstly not very far from Fort de France on the heights, where the sweltering heat seems to have disappeared in the profusion of vegetation that surrounds you. Truly a haven of peace, an oasis to recharge, you will appreciate the places.

  • A must to see botanical park while on Martinique. Beautiful scenery and great variety of tropical flora. Nice suspension bridge with gorgeous views. A complete walk through will take about 1.5 hours and the route is perfectly organized. Very interesting to adults and kids.
  • Excellent garden, carefully designed and laid out to display the many flora of Martinique. Nearly all of it is wheelchair-accessible. A nice restaurant to boot. Main road N3 takes you there from Fort de France - no tiny lanes or difficult maneuvers.
