Tieza Botanical Garden – Cebu’s Hidden Paradise in Busay

Tieza Botanical Garden – Cebu’s Hidden Paradise in Busay

Tieza Botanical Garden is located at Brgy. Malubog, Busay, Cebu City. The botanical garden has a mini lake and surrounded by different kinds of celosia flowers and other flower bearing plants.

It’s a hidden paradise located at the foot of Sirao Mountain. Still under development for additional garden plots.

The garden is not a mainstream attraction in Cebu City. Only few tourists and mountaineers had visited the place considering its location and proximity from the main road.


Going There

Rent habal-habal from JY Supermarket to Holiday Busay Pools. From the resort, turn right and head to Brgy. Malubog. Most of the habal-habal drivers knew the place, the only challenge is the road since it’s prone to landslide. Travel time is almost an hour.

Landslide and big rocks along the road.

Currently, the botanical garden is not yet open to public due to land disputes and they are still acquiring permits to operate.
