A Natural Wonder of Barbados not to be missed. Located at the most northerly tip of the Island is the Animal Flowr Cave where the coastal scenery is spectacular. The cave got its name from the tube worms that are found in its many rock pools, these are seasonal however so not always in residence, regardless the cave itself is still well worth a visit. You can even swim inside the largest rock pool inside the cave which a fantastic adventure all by itself. Make sure you bring your swim wear and towels. The views from the naturally formed windows out to the ocean are fabulous so bring your camera too. We are currently updating the property to add a new restaurant and seating area with panoramic sea views, there is a children's playpark on site too so plan to spend some time with us enjoying the cool sea breezes and the fabulous views that we love to share with you all.

Visited with my daughter and two grandchildren aged 3 (boy) and 6 (girl) today and had the most wonderful time. Down in the cave we saw the "animal flowers" and clambered over the rocks to the beautiful lagoon where the cave opens out onto the sea. Quite a breathtaking sight. We swam in the lagoon and then went for lunch... More

We drove up to the Animal Flower Cave following a visit to both Hunte's Gardens and Harrison's Caves and this was by far our favourite, even though the other two were great! We arrived at lunch time so had some lunch at the newly opened restaurant, the food and service were second to none and the views were simply breathtaking.... More

Go down to the cave and enjoy a swim with the flowers. The restaurant serves nice food with a great view. And walk along the cliff to discover a different side of the highland see the spouts and enjoy a fantastic view! Current owners are really friendly, make you feel really welcome and know a lot about the island.

great sea cave to visit - I'm totally clumsy and able to slip and trip anywhere - the guide did a great job of ensuring I knew where to step and kept me safe - helped me actually enjoy the trip and not just be worried about falling over

Do not pay to go down the steps into the cave. There is very little to see and the animal flowers were all killed off years ago, probably due to tourists being able to enter the pools. Enjoy the great scenery around the caves for free, but don't fall for this tourist trap.

The drive to the North Point is worth the view and experience of this coral cave. My family and I visited both Harrisons and the Animal Flower on the same day. This was a good idea since my kids were able to learn the differences between both types of natural caves. Swimming in the pools of the cave was quite... More

Well worth the effort of getting to the furthest northern point on the island. The views to the right of the caves along the coast are stunning. Entrance fee of 20 Barbados dollars comes with a guide who takes you down some very tall/steep steps. He gives you a good guided tour of the caves with a little folklore thrown... More

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours! A guide takes you through the caves and it was great swimming inside one of the caves looking out over the sea. The staircase down to the caves is steep and rocks are slippery and loose (it is totally natural in the caves) and that adds to the experience.... More

If you have the time to make it up to the northern-most part of this island, please try to make it to this attraction. You get taken into a cave which is the side of a cliff facing the ocean. Pretty amazing to see the ocean so close while on "dry land". Our guide said that at times, the whole... More

Our first visit to Northern point and the views are not to be missed. The trip down to thee Flower cave is very interesting but in my view expensive. That said I did enjoy it and our guide Shabby knew his stuff and kept us entertained. Go for the view certainly but if on a budget then the cave may... More
