We combined a visit to the gardens with a round trip through the adjacent forest with a local guide. We learnt about the growth and production of bananas and the uses of coconuts. This was the more interesting part of the visit. The gardens themselves were disappointing - there were not many orchids in bloom. We had lunch at the... More

If you are staying at the Fox Grove Inn (see separate report) then you are just twenty minutes walk from Mamiku Gardens. The entrance fee is EC$ 20 and is paid to the lady who runs the little cafe.

OK, it was a very quiet day, but the reception was off-hand and the 'refreshments' were a joke. Having said that, the place is interesting but not desperately well maintained. Lots of lovely orchids, and the deepest softest lawn ever! Lots of plant marking numbers but finding the relevant plants was more problematic. More interesting are the remains and their... More

As members of the RHS we were keen to visit these gardens even though it was quite a trek from Castries.(For the non Brits, RHS is the Royal Horticultural Society and Wisley is their flagship garden in Surrey.) Although the botanical list we were given had a a few hundred entries most of the plants were poor and uninteresting. The... More

Mamiku offers well presented gardens (with fauna guide) in part shade set in peaceful grounds. Worth stopping by if you're in the area. There is a cafe and restrooms in the grounds.

A delightful and serene way to spend a Sunday afternoon, it is off the beaten track located on the East Coast of St. Lucia, between the villages of Praslin and Mon Repos on the way to the airport. Tour operators seems to want to shuttle you off to Soufrière which is quite beautiful of course with the Pitons and the... More

This garden is located in a much drier conditions than Botanical Gardens, so cannot and should not be compared. We couldn’t work out plants against a plant guide given to us but we enjoyed peacefulness of this garden, learning about history of the Micoud Estate and meeting an affectionate local cat. Sadly orchids has just finished flowering. Entry charge is... More

A superb trip to a beautiful natural garden/ estate in the east of the island , which gives a great alternative to all other trips that seem to go to Soufriere. Our thanks to Gilbet our guide who really brought the garden to life. A tour is the best way to visit to understand the nature and history of this... More

The entrance fee is a way too high. The garden is very small, and you do not see anything what you have not seen outside of it. So idea, what we paid the money for.

We visited the Mamiku Gardens by taxi from Rodney Bay as we wanted to see the middle of the island and thought the gardens would be a good goal. The entrance fee was 20 EC each but you had to walk up to the cafe to pay as no one was in the parking lot ticket hut. The girl at... More
