This is a cave like any other. Animal flowers? There are 3 brown anenomies in a small pool in the cave (about an inch tall). There is a pool to swim in if you want to but we were ready to go after 10 minutes. Beware of the guys that jump in front of your car as you approach the... More

This was an amazing experience, and one of the things that made it so fun for my kids was meeting Billy the goat, who took a gentle fancy to their clothes, and Bob the bird, who hung around until he got some crumbs. Theo was a great host, and so was our guide. It's incredible down there: the light, the... More

My wife, 14 year old daughter and I went to Animal Flower Cave (AFC) this morning and had a fantastic time. While this was the most remote attraction we've been to on Barbados, the signage was excellent and, for the first time all week, we made no wrong turns on the way to our destination. As mentioned below, a few... More

Great views, worth the drive if you have a rental or taxi. Tickets are 20 Barbados dollars so 10 USD and the tour guide walks you through the caves (really two main caves) the lagoon is so refreshing to swim in after being out in the hot sun. Check out the goats roaming about, they are funny and free to... More

After the friendly but persistent vendors that wave you down as you turn the corner to enter the property (I thought they were the ticket takers the way they were flagging us down, but no!), you make a short drive to a makeshift parking area (probably a bit congested due to the current construction of new facilities). The view is... More

A hidden gem, it's quite a track to get there but well worth it. Beautiful natural cave, coral and limestones carved by the sea process. Identified two animals-lizard and a turtle. A $20BBD entry fee. You go done to the cave using very step stairs and with a guide. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. He gave me a... More

We had a difficult time finding the location, but the view was stunning when we got there. It's the northern most point on Barbados, and the rocky cliffs are beautiful. As for the Animal Flowers... not so much. There were 2 in the cave and our 'guide' was not very much of one. We had to ask all the questions.... More

Getting there, if you are driving yourself can be a challenge but it is worth the trip. The cave itself is very interesting. You enter the cave by going down very steep and large steps through an old blow hole. Inside the cave, the floor is very rocky and uneven and there are small pools of water. We wore Crocs... More

The scenery around this area is well worth a visit. There is a small bar at the top of the steps to the caves, we had luch there its very nice. There is a small play area for children too. We had a guide that took us down into the caves, its very rocky so might not be accessible for... More
