Martinique - Not just diving - Jardin de Balata


Welcome to our series of blogs “Martinique - Not Just Diving” dedicated to all other activities not diving.

2. Le Jardin de Balata - The Balata Gardens

This has to enter the list of unmissable visits on the island of Martinique! Whether a plant expert or not, with over 3000 species of tropical plants to see, you’ll end the visit a little wiser … Lose yourself in the amazing ambiance created by the vibrant colours exploding around you and listen only to the tropical birds chattering in the background! We promise you’ll feel transported to another world!

Right in the middle of the visit you will find a suspended bridge perched in the trees giving you a magnificent view over the gardens and surrounding forests. All along the visit you will surely marvel at the numbers of tiny humming birds hovering around the thousands of extraordinary & unusual plant life!

And a super end to the visit, there is the garden’s traditional Creole house where the bird-feeders are busy with yet more of the many varieties of hummingbird to be found in Martinique!

Count around 2 hours for the visit - especially if you are a keen photographer!
