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.

Myself and my family have visited the island for years but never quite made it up to this simply beautiful attraction. The restaurant was perfectly situated above the coastline and the food and staff were utterly fantastic. It's a beautiful, idyllic spot if you're looking for a great meal and a unique dinning experience. Most definitely worth a visit!

After arriving on the island the afternoon before, and relaxing beach-side, this was the first location I visited during my week stay. It was a great choice. The Cave is amazing. This is not a huge chamber or dark place. There are several adjoining chambers that you can stand upright in and walk through, one has 20 foot ceiling, with... More

I was told by our cave guide that Billy Ocean's "Caribbean Queen" music video was filmed here. And I believe him. Amazing caves with pools of ocean water inside in different places. Views of the ocean from the caves are incredible. It's a bit out of the way to get to, but well worth the drive, and is very affordable... More

We took the bus from Holetown to the Animal Flower Caves in March. We decided that we wanted to go down into the caves to see them and to have a swim. You pay a fee, $10 US per person which was quite reasonable. We had a wonderful guide whose name was Chad! He took us down into the caves... More

Having known the Animal Flower Cave as it was years ago...I have to say the Cave fits the needs of a variety of visitors and locals. The ambience surrounding the restaurant is so relaxing...

It is a bit of a trek to get here but most definitely worth a visit ! The entry fee was $10 US and with that you get a guide to take you round the cave. Once you decend the steps the trip takes about 20 mins with loads of great picture opportunities. There is also a " Swiming pool... More

If you are planning to go to see the animal flowers it is not worth the money as there is like only one or two rocks with them living on it. But to view at the marvels of a cave made out of the ocean swells over millions of years it is worth it. The highlight is definitely the underground... More

The cave is located on the north of the island where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean sea with a great view from the restaurant area. The cave itself cost $10 US/$20 Barbadian and is down some very steep steps; a guide takes you down and tells you a little about the history of the cave. There are however, very few... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are terribly sorry you personally felt that 6.68 UKP was too much money to pay to experience our fabulous cave and admire the beauty of nature. All our guests are informed that it IS a natural sea cave, it IS uneven and it IS slippery. That is why we... More

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
