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

I really liked this cave. It's not difficult or challenging, just a small hole you have to initially crawl through. It's quite tranquil once you're inside. As far as the "bad smell", it's just an odd combination of bat guana and seawater, what do you expect? Chanel No. 5? It's tolerable. I like caves. It's small, you don't have to... More

You have to crawl in a small opening to get inside. If you're claustrophobic this is not a good idea. There were a lot of tourists going in & out. Maybe 2 groups would be enough to explore the place. The cave is just small. It was a nice experience.
