Our last day at Panglao, we visited Hinagdanan Cave. We were welcomed by a friendly guide who took us down in the cave. After his explanation he guided us in the small cave, showed us the special spots and took heaps of pictures of us. The place is really warm and the moist air doesn't make it better. A nice... More

Hinagdanan cave is a small cave about 15m below ground level. The water is salt water, which is always clean/fresh. The cave is a little smelly, just like any other cave.

Tour guide we had was really cool and took great pics of us...and they work for tips only...the are volunteers at the cave so remember that if you go there. A nice... More

It's a nice, small cave ruined by the local government to suit mass tourism. The tour guides also are not informative and their jokes are painfully irrelevant and insincere.

The cave has steep steps down into it so is not suitable for the disabled, there is a lake in the cave which is said to be suitable for swimming but considering the number of birds nesting in there no one went for a dip.Lots of souvenir stands outside, suitable for a quick visit if you're in the area.

VickyF said "you couldn't see the bottom of the water and it was full of bird poo". She visited in December. I visited at the end of November. No idea what happened in the few weeks in between but the water was crystal clear at the end of November.. I could easily see the bottom and tried to film it... More

Cave was also small and nothing else to see really. Dont waste your time. The scooter ride... More
