Privately owned by the Gibbons family, Palm Groves is a wonderful manicured garden in Bermuda's Devonshire parish. The 18-acre landscaped garden stretches from the main South Road to the sea. As the name suggest, there is a wide array of palm trees and palmettos including Cuban Royal palms, Canary Island palms and such. The garden also has Sago and coconut trees and there are nice limestone huts. There is an aviary that has lots of parrots.
You will see a moon gate in the garden. Moon gates are supposed to bring good luck for the newly wed couples who pass through them. There is also a wishing well. The main highlight of the garden is a lily pond with a Bermuda island map on it as you can see in the picture above.
