This is a natural cave made by ocean waves in the rocks in the north of the island. You can have a very refreshing swim in the cave and see the amazing animal flowers folding up when you touch them. All in all, a great treat for those who like nature.

The cave is billed as an amazing, must-see attraction in Barbados and it's pretty enough. As for must-see though I think if I'd know that the cafe was closed for renovation then we would not have made the detour. Basically it's a cave with a view of the ocean. The same view as you get on top of the cliff.... More

This was my first time visiting the cave and I've been to Barbados 19 times. My 5 yr old enjoyed the animal flowers it was able to gently poke with a stick provided but our tour guide who was very friendly. The history behind the cave is very interesting. Tips: don`t wear flip flops to the cave as some of... More

We stopped in Bridgetown on a cruise so we rented a car and drove to animal flower cave as they weren't any excursions to it. It was COMPLETELY worth it. My boyfriend and I were the only ones there aside from the tour guide who took us into the cave we were able to swim in the cave and have... More

This was enjoyed by the whole family; especially swimming in the waters in the cave. That was a wonderful experience and I would recommend you take a towel and take a dip. The area is at the top most northern point of Barbados and very scenic. There is a huge potential for this to be developed further and I believe... More

I'll admit: I wasn't expecting much from this.... but it turned out to be the absolute most brilliant thing I've ever seen. I've never been to Mexican cenotes (underground water canals) but this was a great way to be introduced. The guides were extremely friendly and patient with us, as we did indeed take our time exploring and swimming in... More

We visited the cliffs where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic with a privat driver. It was an incredible sight. After a nice tour of the site, we stopped at the concession area. What a trip! We were transported to Europe with really good, fresh sandwich wraps. My very picky British friend loved it.the owners were lovely. My only regret was... More

Presently this site is under upgrading, in other words, construction. They are definitely trying to make it more appealing for tourists to visit. But despite the inconvenience of the construction the caves are worth the money. I wouldn't recommend the visit to anybody who is not agile on his or her feet. I wore flip flops, not a good idea...

The tide and sun were just right so our pictures were awesome. The cave was excellent. We heard negative views on the cave. Some people need to get a life and get back to nature. Correct there is no lift or sound&light show as some people seem to expect. This is a natural cave with natural features and a replenishing... More
