The place is closed for renovations, so there is nothing to see there now. however if you park there and go up the road for about 200 meters, you can hike Morne Blanc, which is one of the summits of the national park. 45 min...More

Just a few minutes drive from the Mission Lodge. Unfortunately the tea factory is closed till the end of May. We hung around the area though which was worth it due to the pretty views and serenity of surrounding nature.

We drove down the very winding road after a visit to the Mission Lodge lookout. Feeling a little jittery from holding on tightly as we edged along, we were looking forward to a visit to the Tea Factory. However, it is closed for the next...More

Only open from Monday to Friday to tour the tea factory. The garden is open at weekends so you can see the views from the garden. The factory, however, is closed. Offers simple local tea in orange, mint ,lemon, vanilla and cinnamon flavours

No reservation needed for the tour. I was there in May. Tour is self guided. Not much to see. I would skip the tour. They do sell tea which is very good. The view of the coastline alone is worth the stop.
