Fodor's Review

Victoria's botanical gardens at Mont Fleuri on the outskirts of town were planted more than a century ago, and the comprehensive collection of native Mascarene plants and exotic imports stretches over five acres. The abundant palms—including the rare Coco de Mer—are the most important local species, and there is a fine spice garden. Watch out for the native Aldabra tortoises (some over 150 years old) and the flying foxes (large fruit-eating bats), which roost in the palm fronds.
