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.

The staff members were uniformly friendly and helpful and the cave was fascinating, like nothing we had ever seen. You do need to descend and ascend a steep staircase to enter the cave and the floor of the cave is uneven and slippery wet. But our guide was very patient with us and we did get to see some see...

In sleepy St Lucy's Parish in the northern part of Barbados lies a wonderful treasure. The Animal Flower Cave is a terrific excursion for the whole family. Go in your bathing suit and descend with a guide (steep steps and uneven footing in the cave so be forewarned) to the cool, naturally formed cave in the coral limestone rock. Inside... More

We visited today. The views are spectacular, and it has a walkway to see more of the coastline . We visited the cave which was good and swam in the "pool", which again has great views. The restaurant has a fantastic setting, obviously built to get the best of the view, the food was beautiful and reasonably priced, and the... More

We visited the cave 5 years ago. Having seen the post upgrade reviews we decided to visit for the scenery and restaurant this time and skip returning to the cave. It took us about an hour in the rental car from the Hilton (down South). We evaded the nick nack salesman as we turned into the site offering him a... More

This wonderful spot is just weeks old and the word is out for locals and visitors. Simple setting overlooking breathtaking waves crashing in at the NorthPoint of Barbados. Tip of St. Lucy ; follow the signs north of the parish church. There is no admission but people will try to sell to you before the car park entrance. Keep going... More

It is the view of the wild atlantic sea and the animal flower bay, rather than the cave, which impresses. It really is spectacular and on a wild windy wet day, even better. It is nice to see the cafe enhanced since our last visit, lovely shady seated areas now and a restaurant. A nice change from the beach, well... More

Our drive to the North Point was a tricky one. There are some signs on the road marked "caves", but make sure to get a map. When you come to the entrance, there is a man there selling some souvenirs, we asked him what he could give us for $10 Barbadian ($5 US), we got a cute braclett for our... More

Stunning views from above and a great low-key tour of the cave for a small fee. We were able to swim in the cave which was a fantastic experience-especially since there were only a few other people around and we pretty much had it to ourselves. They have just built a fantastic cafe/bar on top of the cliff. Can't beat... More

I read the reviews on this one, and I agree. Spectacular place for a drive off the beaten path, visit, and lunch. We were there at around 10AM and had the place almost to ourselves. That made it particularly wonderful. Bring a swim suit so you can swim in the caves. (I was worried they'd be closed at all high... More
