Balata Garden

Highly recommended
The botanical garden of Balata is the work of Jean-Philippe Thoze who collected rare, tropical plants over a 20-year period. Heliconias, ginger, begonias, orchids and bromelia paint a vivid picture, alternating between bright splashes of colour and dense greenery, all of which to a backdrop of birdsong (look out for the hummingbird). Remember to pick up the leaflet, which will help you identify some of the 200 species present on the estate.
