About
We are open on Tuesday - Sunday from 9:00-4:00. Closed on Mondays. Reservations not required. We look forward to sharing Phantasea with our visitors and locals. The garden is full of beautiful blooming orchids, bromeliads, lilies, palms, and more. . Come and relax in the calming serenity of nature as lizards scurry about and butterflies and birds fly throughout the garden. Stop and rest in our Balinese gazebo or at our other seating areas. Visit our resident wildlife - parrots, tortoises, peacocks and chickens - and learn about the garden plants and inhabitants with our interpretive signs. Approx. 45 minutes - one hour average time to visit. Great for children and families. Cold water, tropical juices and snacks for sale. Blooming orchids and tillandsias (air plants) also for sale. Cash and credit cards accepted. Easy to find, just follow the signs posted along the roadways , or use Google maps.(DO NOT use GPS!) Masks required throughout the garden.

Absolute must if you enjoy nature and the outdoors. The staff person was super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. No matter how hot it is, it’s cool under the canopy. SO many orchids!!! So many lizards too. Great for couples and families. We brought home 5 air plants and are so happy with them. There are several places to sit and just enjoy the beauty. There are steps, but it’s only two acres so not very strenuous. We will be back for sure!

We loved the Phantasea Botanical Garden. They had so many beautiful plants growing in their natural habitat, and there were many different types of birds and lizards enjoying the space too. They had good documentation in the areas to learn more about the plants. The path is a simple circle located on the side of a hill with good steps and railings throughout. There were a few spots with benches and tables along the path to stop and relax which was really cool too. We could have stayed there all day. I believe it was just $10 for entry too which was well worth it to support such a cool, natural space.

Beautiful tranquil gardens. We paired this with the view and a daiquiri at Mountain Top which was a perfect combo as neither takes too long and then we went down to Magen's Bay beach. Very nice day. The orchids at this garden are beautiful! Highlyl recommmend!

Great activity for a cloudy day or when you need a beach break! Beautiful flowers and vegetation. The orchids are just amazing! The woman working was very friendly and informative. It took up about 45 minutes to walk through, we really enjoyed the informational placards and taking photos.

If you want to see thousands of blooming orchids, bromeliads and exotic plants in their natural settings, this is the place to visit. I've been to many botanical gardens around the world, and to me this is one of the most beautiful. There are winding paths through the rainforest canopy full of beautiful blooms. It can be a riot of color and beauty.

Looking to spend some time out of the sun, we discovered this hidden gem! The gardens are full of beautiful plants including many orchids. Many of the plants were labeled - very informative! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. You can get a peek through the trees at Megans Bay, far below. And the most amazing part - no mosquitoes!

It is a very small very interesting garden with lovely flowers and hungry little birds that come and feed by the entrance. The lady was very nice and told us about the garden and called a taxi for us. This is about an hour visit if you take it slow.
