Our entire family of 23 people visited Hinagdanan Cave and enjoyed its beauty and its funny guides. The cave is so spacious inside, with wonderful natural lighting. The stalactites are awesome. I did not feel claustrophobic inside.

Its a very small cave with 'gift shops' outside taking up more space than the actual cave. They limit the number of people in the cave at a time, and its a one-way-in-one-way-out pathway. We did not notice a smell like others noted.

This place is pretty awesome, I do have to say. I thought I might find a nice relief from the heat in this cave. We have caves here in Colorado and they tend to be cooler. Definitely not the case for this cave, oh my Lord! I sweated here more than I sweated in Boracay during summer. Hot, moist, humid...the... More

The Hinagdanan Cave is Bohol's most famous and visited cave. It is a naturally lighted cavern with a deep lagoon and many large stalactites and stalagmites. The cave is lit by sunlight which filters through holes in the ceiling. Travel itinerary at Travel+Experiment! http://anziehendmutter.blogspot.com/2015/04/backpacking-top-tourist-attractions-in.html

If you are staying at one of the many resorts on Panlao Island Hinagdanan Cave is well worth taking an hour or so to visit. A few steps from ground level take you down to a substantial cave with cool clear water ideal for a refreshing swim.

This was a pleasant surprise. Had a great tour guide who knew how to use the white balance, focal aperture, shutter speed, etc so we had nice pics. Bring your swimming gear in case you want take a dip.

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.
