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 thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this attraction we had a friendly guide who showed us the cave and enetertained us. Amazing views from the bar and restaurant. We had a tasty lunch and would recommend the fishcakes and roti. All staff were friendly and looked happy to be there.

This place is a little hard to find but eventually we made it. And it was so worth the drive. The views are spectacular! It is located at the far northern tip of Barbadoes where the Atlantic and Caribbean oceans meet. We were fortunate enough to plan our trip around lunch and we were not disappointed. The menu is small... More

I have been to Animal Flower Cave a few times. I have been into the cave twice, but I really just enjoy coming here to sit and have a drink at the bar and enjoy the rugged coast. The cave is very interesting, quite an experience to go down and walk around. It is a natural cave so the ground... More

Well worth spending 2 or 3 hours here. The view from the cliff top is absolutely amazing, one of the most spectacular I've ever seen. Our guide was quite informative and inside the cave is pretty impressive too. Well worth the entry fee. Tip: Wear decent soled footwear, it can be very slippery underfoot.

The cave itself is pretty impressive, much bigger than it seems. We didn't swim but we were given the option to swim in one of the pools. You wouldn't be able to swim for long as you go into the cave with a guide, but I bet you could get some good pictures of the sea from in there! The... More

Great improvement since my last visit! Restaurant is lovely! Food and service great! If you have room for dessert I recommend the bread pudding! Delish!

Visited today for lunch. Went for the days special...Seared tuna. Service was good. Food arrived not long after ordering. It was well presented and tasted very good. Would recommend, but feel staff should inform diners of the cost of the daily specials. My own thoughts were 45$ a tad expensive for a daily special nice as it was.

We eventually found this place after a detour for roadworks and were told that a film crew had hired it out for the day. So, we took the obligatory snaps of the fantastic views, had a drink a left. Such a shame. Next visit to Bim maybe.

Since we last visited this attraction has been greatly improved. It is really nice now, with great lookout spots for some wonderful photo opportunities. The Atlantic waves crashing against the cliffs is quite dramatic, and mesmerising to watch. The new restaurant and seating areas are really nice. The menu was not that great, not much of a choice, but what... More

A cave hollowed out by the pounding sea from the cliffs at Barbados's North Point. Spectacular views and fascinating geology. It seems we missed seeing the humpbacked whales by three or four days, and most of the animal flowers (anemones) were covered by high seas, but it was an experience not to be missed. Unless, of course, you don't like... More
