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.

We hired a jeep for the day so we could explore the north west of the island ... and I'm so glad we did. The Animal Flower Caves were unbelievable. By far, the best sight/attraction we did during our time in Barbados. When your in the cave, swimming in the natural pool with the ocean backdrop, you feel like you're... More

We hired a car to tour the island and were glad, that a local mentioned these stunning cave to us! Would recommend that if you are going to wear shoes with a good grip! I had on flip flops and found it hard to climb across the caves.

This was a beautiful place to visit. My kids are 11 and 12 and enjoyed swimming in the cave. Beautiful views of ocean and we wanted to cliff jump, but seas were too rough. You have a tour guide that shows you their little area of stuff they are selling after the tour. Pressure to buy their jewelry, but they... More

We went with low expectations and an 8 year old who was decidedly unimpressed with the idea of exploring a cave. Arrived mid morning and were lucky enough to have the caves to ourselves and our rather lovely guide "English." He showed us the flowering anemones, all the geological interests and history. Then he helped us pick our way safely... More

After over a decade traveling to Barbados we finally made a point of going to the North point of the island to see the Animal Flower Cave. I am so glad we did! The restaurant was really good, I highly recommend a spiked lemonade (its cheaper than the coffee btw). I love the concept of employing the vendors as the... More

Depending on where you are staying it is a bit of a challenge to get to the Cave but it is worth the drive. The views are absolutely stunning and different from any other on this island. There is a restaurant if interested and a gift shop with Barbados gifts. There are also a few "street vendors" at the entrance... More

We have been visiting this location over the years and it just keeps getting better. The cliff walks are spectacular. The new restaurant is a masterful creation and the service and food are excellent. The location is somewhat remote but do not let this put you off. This is a MUST SEE! If you are going with a group, as... More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and toured the cave - the entire experience was really excellent! Bring your swimsuits for a dip in the ponds in the cave!

Barbados’ North Point, where the gentle Caribbean meets the wild Atlantic, is a must-see. If you can navigate the steep steps into the Animal Flower Cave, you can get up close and personal with the sea anemones which give their name to this spot. The view of the ocean from this spot is unforgettable. Even if you choose not to... More
