Your Guide to the Saipan Botanical Garden
The island of Saipan is one of the most beautiful places that you can find, no matter where life takes you! Although the area is overflowing with beaches, resorts, and golf courses, a day spent among the trees can be an especially great way to unwind. For a concentrated look at some of the locale’s most dazzling foliage and flora, you’ll absolutely want to spend a day at the Saipan Botanical Garden.
Where is the Saipan Botanical Garden?
The Saipan Botanical Garden is located right off of Isa Drive-Route 31 in Papago, just north of Laulau Bay. It’s a five-minute drive from San Vicente, a seven-minute drive from the Lao Lao Bay Golf Course outside of Kagman, and a nine-minute drive from Capitol Hill in the north. All things considered, you’ll have little trouble reaching the Botanical Gardens, no matter where you find yourself on the island.
What Can I Expect When I Visit?
One can encounter beautiful views and unique things to do all over Saipan, but the botanical gardens, in the island’s interior, are truly something to behold! On your visit, you’ll encounter as many as 57 different tree species and more than 100 different types of understory plant species. The island’s foliage is primary limestone forest.
If you’re lucky, you may spot local birds like the Mariana fruit dove, the Micronesian myzomela, or the nightingale reed warbler.
If you want to see the area before you visit, the best source just might be Youtube user “Angelawinston”, who uploaded two videos from the Saipan Botanical Garden overlook in 2008.
