These gardens are more than a hundred years old, and cover six hectares of verdant land in especially colourful and lush greenery and colour. Suggestively shaped endemic Coco de mers grow by the exotic orchid garden, and possibly the tortoises, kept for breeding purposes. Not huge, it only takes around 45 mins to get around these gardens on Mount Fleuri Road.
