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.

Had the opportunity to visit The Animal Flower Cave, and all the reviews here affirmed the great experience. The Animal Flower Cave is a coral cave carved from seawater that houses Animal Flowers (sea anemones). At one point it may have housed many ; but sadly at this time, there aren't many. They do try to preserve whatever is left... More

We visited on a day when the restaurant was closing early for a private function but the bar/cafe staff were happy to accommodate us with a simpler menu. The fish cakes were very good - as were the sweet potatoes and fish 'fingers'. The cave itself is pretty unique if a little small but it's worth a visit. The guide... More

Excellent renovations to previously very basic bar and restaurant have transformed this venue to truly stunning. Lunch service was slow as they were busy but the menu was varied, meal tasty and staff friendly and efficient. Next time we'll order food on arrival instead of after drinks. Definitely worth the drive to take in the scenery and breathe the fresh... More

the views are incredible and "ahh" the invigorating ocean wind was amazing as the powerful waves crashed against the cliff the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the caves. there is a pool at the end of the cave didnt go in though so i cant comment on it. Never the less, it was definitely worth a... More

The 'Animal Flowers' were three small tired grey anemones which every visiting tourist gets to poke. The cave is small with slippery rocks, and as for the 'swimming pool' - with the blue Caribbean outside, a slightly dirty, plastic-hose fed pool in a little cave could not be considered an attraction. Neither us nor our children were tempted to wade... More

The animal flower cave has some lovely views of the atlantic ocean and shows the big comparison between the East coast and West coast. Definitely a picture perfect place.

We took two buses to get here from Worthing Court Hotel, the first to Speightstown then from there the Conneltown bus. We had to drop off along the route then take a scenic short walk to the cave. The scenery on the coast was great, sea dashing against the cliffs, nice restaurant to get snacks and food, small children playpark.... More

This is definitely a must see and reasonably easy to find as its one of the better signposted attractions (albeit not brilliant). Theres natural sea caves and stunning vistas from the surface too. Inside one of the caves there is a natural pool to cool down in as you're allowed to swim in it. The only slight downside is the... More
