Tortola has a new award-winning cruise terminal. Tortola is one of the most popular Caribbean islands to draw people seeking the sun. It is a small town so a trip to the beach, and island bus tour or these botanical Gardens are the main choices.
You can spend a relaxing few hours in the refuge of nearly 4 acres, established in 1979. The J.R. O’Neal Botanic Gardens are in the centre of Road Town with a lush array of indigenous and exotic tropical plants as seen in our film.
The pergola walk, lily pond, waterfall, tropical birdhouses, orchid house and miniature rainforests are just a few of the garden’s attractions. The National Parks Trust’s Description: At the site of the century-old Agricultural Experiment Station, the Botanic Gardens are a beautiful oasis in the centre of Road Town. They are named after the BVI’s first conservationist, Joseph Reynold O’Neal who was a leading figure in the formation of the National Parks Trust and the establishment of the BVI’s first national park, Mt. Sage National Park. The avenue of royal palms which leads to the fountain makes a captivating entrance for visitors, whilst paths disappear into corners of the garden lined with colourful blossoms draped over shady pergolas. The botanic collections represent the different habitats of the BVI such as the rainforest, coastal environments and dry forests, in addition to displays of exotic species and an extensive collection of palms. A gazebo of orchids both, native and exotic can be discovered by the pond, where lilies float and tortoises swim. The nursery at the garden is an important repository for endangered species of flora found within the BVI, such as the Acacia Anegardensis, ensuring their survival from habitat loss.
