  • A national park this small site is cared for to showcase the plants and animals of the BVI. Just about the only place to see the indigenous tortoise. Worth a gentle 20 minute stroll. Nice...

  • Beautiful garden perfect for a stroll or a picnic, or a proposal. Lots of chickens and roosters to keep you company. Not crowded. Very friendly staff.
  • We visited this Botanical Garden from a stop from our cruise line. The garden is situated a few blocks in land from the sea port. It was beautifully kept, serene and very peaceful. It was nice just to sit down and enjoy the calmness among the trees and greenery. There was also live chickens near the back of the park.
