ancient cave

maybe centuries ago, this cave was underwater as you can see the remains of water flows into its stones...well done to our boatmen who helped us get into the cave

A nice stop on the trip. If you are not the sporty type, it need some experience to enter. In general the boatman will assist and have some towels or other "soft mat" available to overcome the hard rock at the entrance.

Part of Tour B - we stopped here for lunch which was nice as there are permanent tables/chairs dotted around for the first boats to get here! If you aren't lucky enough to nab one of these the boat operators normally have a small foldable table to use. There is a toilet and a couple of cabins on this beach... More

One of the highlights of Tour B, since you need to go through a small entrance before enjoying the cave. It's hard, I tell you. There's not a lot to see inside, but the experience takes the cake. :)

The small squeeze entrance needed some dexterity to enter, something that my belly was not too cooperative with! And my family had a good laugh as i stumbled and fumbled to enter and exit the cave. Our group has done some caving/spelunking in the past and this cave is a short, easy activity. Except for that tight squeeze of an... More

I was worried about this stop on Tour B because the reviews say the opening to the cave is small. Now you can see my pic and I'm not a small guy but exactly the opposite. Now if i can manage this entrance without too much difficulty, you can too. The stop is great, there are excellent photo ops and... More

I was here on my day tour from Miniloc Islands. It was a nice cave but since I am a tall person it was a little difficult for me to get inside the cave but once i managed to squeeze myself in it was beautiful. Good photo op. Will visit again.

Cudugnon cave was a part of our day visit from El Nido resorts and it was totally worth the visit. It was a rainy day but still very beautiful as our guide made our trip memorable with the awesome pictures he captured of us. Getting into the cave can be a task for somebody who is oversized or not very... More

It is a nice little cave and our guide shared some trivia of the early settlers and its purpose. It was once used as a hiding place during the war. Now that small entrance entrance makes sense. So small that you have to squeeze and crawl yourself inside. It is cozy and well lit inside. It did not feel so... More
