Owner description: Private three-acre garden with an estimated 3,000 different species of flora found in Grenada and the Caribbean.
Reviewed 16 December 2012

We just visited Bay Gardens for a second time and were delighted to see that it was open to the public again after a short closure earlier in the year.  This is a magical tropical garden (not your formally laid out European garden), more of a managed piece of jungle with very interesting plants, mature trees, amazing foliage and beautiful flowers.  If you are interested in Caribbean  plants in any way whatsoever then this garden is a must.  This garden is privately owned and operates for the benefit of visitors so it is well worth supporting.  Albert gave us a private tour and even showed us the overgrown remains of the sugar mill he was born in, which is part of the garden. He was extremely knowledgeable about the plants, their origins and uses.

Only recently re-opened and we were the recipients of a very warm friendly greeting and a wonderful tour lasting over an hour and learning about all the plants and the history of the place. As a keen gardner it was time well spent and it was so friendly interacting with our guides who were eager to show off the collection of plants and trees. The highlight for me were the hummingbirds taking nectar from the flowers.

Seemed to be closed, and been so for a while. We found a small house/cafe that seemed to have been closed for a long time.

The Bay Gardens no longer exist in any managed form. Yes, you can see the remnants of what must have once been a beautiful place, but now it is just an overgrown wilderness.

The owner, our guide, couldn't have been more helpful, showing us around the extensive gardens, which must have been glorious in better days - before hurricane Ivan. At the time we went,the gardens were pretty run down, but we really enjoyed our visit, and our host was extremely knowledgable about all the flora and fauna, plus you can buy herbs and spices there.
