  • The garden is well structured. Many species of Palm trees. Good time, but still too expensive.

  • Madinina deserves its name and there you have a very nice overview. Feel free to enjoy this haven of peace.

  • 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.
