Get a bus til SpreightsTown Terminal of Bus and the get a Connel village or a van that is going to there. U always can get a bus to Briegtown and do the sabe that is more dificult. You don't need to use a seekers, it's slippery for any shoes. Despite the difficulty to find any info to get there,... More

Was a bit dubious about this but went for it anyway. Good shoreline and view but the sea animals must have been on holiday. A couple of specimens had made the mistake of taking a staycation and spent their time being prodded by a stick to show how they closed up for their trouble. Were not offered the option of... More

A bit of a trek up north of the island to pay to enter a cave which does not reflect its animal flower namesake - about 2 anenomies in total were spotted. Several groups of tourists were there on tour. We had a dip in the cool water and then left after about 10 minutes. The silhouetted cave view to... More

The actual cave is beautiful and it's great that it hasn't been spoiled, but that's all there really is to say for the place. There was ONE 'animal flower' in the whole place, which our guide kindly pointed out for us, and it seemed rather ridiculous that we were charged to get in. If you're in the area with nothing...

We took the time to go down into the cave, but the footing is difficult so make sure you are steady on your feet if you go. The guide showed us some of the anemone flowers but they didn't look like much, brown and muddy; imagine my surprise when we looked at the pictures afterward and saw beautiful colorful flowers....the...

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
