Our family group of 5 took a wonderful 2 hour ATV Tour. Shawnee was our guide and instructor. Only one of us had ever ridden a ATV before. She was patient and thoroughly answered all our questions. I recommend this highly.

There are a number of tours to take on Grand Bahama, but the Garden of the Groves is the prettiest. You'll see a very attractive, well maintained park with lovely landscaping and native plant life.

It has been interesting viewing the reviews on this place. .... The bottom line is, if you love gardens you will enjoy this. I have been to gardens all over the world and while this of course is not the most ornate, it is a very nice 12 acre garden that brings to light many of the native birds and... More

We did this as an excursion from our cruise and it was part of the Jeep Tour. We had lunch here which was sandwiches/hamburgers and chips. The garden was interesting, the shops were expensive. There were a lot of bees around so it was hard to get a way from them and enjoy everything. The ducks walking around were also... More

It was sad to see so many sawed off tree trunks in the Garden, but the staff did a wonderful job of getting the rest of the garden up to scratch. Lots of nice water areas and lush vegetation. A small retail area with souvenirs, crafts and food.

Beautiful flowers, lots of plants to discover, and birds you don't often see. The restaurant is also great for lunch and the servers and services quick. Highly recommended.

I guess tht I am from a tropical country, so did not find anything really spectacular about this garden. It might be worth visiting if you really want to see a garden. The ducks walking around are the best things about this place. Some good places to take some decent pics. Visit only if you really want too...

The garden was not as impressive as expected. It looks like it not as lush due to the hurricane. Daughter got stung by a bee as soon as we got out of car. Person selling tickets very helpful.
