Discovering the most beautiful gardens in Martinique

 The garden of Balata

The garden of Balata remains without equivocation one of the places to visit absolutely during a stay in Martinique. To reach this exceptional place, opt for a car rental in Martinique and take the road to Balata.

During your visit, you will plunge into the magical and pleasantly soft universe created by the landscape artist and botany enthusiast Jean-Philippe Thoze in 1982. You will find unique collections ranging from majestic royal palms to colorful plants such as ballerinas, hibiscus, porcelain roses, South American bromeliads, anthuriums and heliconias.

Don't miss a trip on the bridges suspended from giant mahoganies. You will have a spectacular view on the whole garden and an exceptional panorama on the bay of Fort-de-France and the pitons of Carbet.

The domain of Captain Latouche

The domain of Captain Latouche is also a real corner of paradise that you must visit during a trip to Martinique. This time it is a landscaped park created around the ruins of the sugar house of Anse Latouche dating from the 17th century.

The work of Jean-Philippe Thoze, it immerses visitors in a succession of scenes and varied atmospheres. You will find among others a classical style garden highlighting sculptural installations of bromeliads and orchids. 

Creole gardens

Very colorful, the Creole gardens are also worth a visit during your stay on the Ile aux Fleurs. Respectful of people and the environment, a Creole garden is above all a space laid out according to some basic principles.

During your visit, you will learn more details about water saving techniques, recycling, soil preservation and fertility, as well as the maintenance of biodiversity.

As it is a subsistence garden, a Creole garden is full of food plants, some medicinal species and of course, ornamental plants. It should be noted, however, that this type of space is laid out according to a very specific structure. The hut garden is organized around the house. Particularly flowered, the representation garden is installed on the other hand in front and symbolizes the protection of the house. 

After discovering the flora side of the island, you can visit the fauna side at the Zoo de Martinique.

Opt for a car rental in Martinique to appreciate the beauty of these typical gardens of the Island of Flowers.
