These gardens were free and beautiful. A nice tranquil stop on an island drive. There was a short flat walk and a longer hike

Great place for a stroll amongst the water lilys and other planting and or a decent hike. We did both and took the long loop up the hillside and back down in around 1 hr 20 mins. Steady climb but not difficult as steps built...More

It's definitely a good place to stop if you're into botany, or love to photograph beautiful and exotic flowers/plants. We went on a tour, which was nice to have someone telling us about everything, but I like to take lots of pictures, so it was...More

This place is nothing special and hardly worth the stop. It's nice enough but nearly all the plants are non-native and the place is not even well landscaped. Possibly worth stopping for 10-20 minutes as you drive past but not worth a special journey.

We went to these gardens as part of a shore tour on our cruise. A lovely place for those who enjoy the beauty and tranquility of gardens. Quite nice, not overly big, good to wander around and enjoy some of the lovely flora of Tahiti.

Part of a day-long tour of the area, we stopped to enjoy the native flowers and plants, take a short trail walk, and visit the clean restroom. If I hadn't been on a tour, I would have enjoyed spending more time exploring the gardens. As...More

Iaorana.you should have to take the bus to Papeari or Taravao. At the bus stop in town, just look Taravao or Papeari in the front of the bus or ask the driver. It runs every hour.
