DIAMOND FALLS BOTANICAL GARDENS AND MINERAL BATHS
Petit Futé's opinion on DIAMOND FALLS BOTANICAL GARDENS AND MINERAL BATHS
Soufrière estate was originally part of a 2000 acres of land granted by Louis XVI to a French family named Devaux in recognition of their service in 1713 to "crown and country". From a cocoa plantation, the Devaux family change it to a fabulous natural touristic attraction with a botanical garden, minerals baths and a nature trail. Majority of the tropical flowers are founded here. Ginger Lily, anthurium, but also plants like the castor oil tree and birds like the famous hummingbird and many others endemic species of the island. At the back of the garden, you will be blown away by the beauty of the diamonds fall. Swimming is prohibited, however you can enjoy the 3 pools with therapeutic water. Built for the French troops of Louis XVI, 12 baths were destroyed by the Brigands during the French revolution. Since that, 3 pools with warm water are available to the public.
