NOTE : THE CAVE IS A NATURAL SEA CAVE - IT IS SLIPPERY, IT IS WET, IT IS A SEA CAVE. WE DO SEND A GUIDE WITH EACH TOUR TO AIDE PEOPLE AS NEEDED.

WE DO ADVISE THE ELDERLY AND THOSE NOT FIRM ON THEIR FEET TO STAY 'UP TOP'AND ENJOY THE SCENERY AND MAYBE A RUM PUNCH OR TWO!

A Natural Wonder of Barbados not to be missed. Located at the most northerly tip of the Island is the Animal Flowr Cave where the coastal scenery is spectacular.

The cave got its name from the tube worms that are found in its many rock pools, these are seasonal however so not always in residence, regardless the cave itself is still well worth a visit. You can even swim inside the largest rock pool inside the cave which a fantastic adventure all by itself. Make sure you bring your swim wear and towels.

The views from the naturally formed windows out to the ocean are fabulous so bring your camera too.

There is now a new restaurant on site and seating area with panoramic sea views, there is a children's playpark too so plan to spend some time with us enjoying the cool sea breezes and the fabulous views that we love to share with you all.

Paid Barbados $20 each to walk around in the cave down an exceptionally steep set of stairs. Heard a few interesting facts from our guide 'English' '95% coral and 5% limerstone' Due to very rough seas no swimming allowed in the big pool underground which I imagine would have made our visit a bit more exciting. Stunning views from inside... More

The caves are at the Northern tip of Barbados and the location is spectacular, with a bar/restaurant perched on the edge of the cliff, so great place to enjoy a rum punch. The views are hugely impressive. But...for four of us, we paid (i think) B$80 for a "guided" tour of the caves. Now firstly, I presume the guide is... More

Highly recommend checking out The Animal Flower Cave. Shout out to our tour guide who was awesome and told us a lot of interesting history behind it. Definitely take your swimmers and an underwater camera as there are some pretty cool cave pools to swim in.

Took some friends to animal flower cave, never tire of seeing the beautiful views, the sea is mesmarising lovely to spend time sitting in the 'view' area watching the sea. Then on the other side sit and look out to sea and watch the fishermen. Friends went down the cave and did see some animal flowers and were not able... More

Super destination. Set aside 4 hours. 1+ hour drive from Bridgetown. Cliff views are outstanding and cave is such a cool and unique experience. Be careful with kids!!

This location has developed during the last 4 years and now the restaurant completely complements the fantastic sea cliff venue. A very homely venue with the best home made lemonade on the island. Great food and friendly helpful staff.

Great place to visit and the tour is a very reasonable $20 Barbados. Had Jay as our guide and he took great silhouette photos for us too. Well worth a visit. Had great lunch looking out over the sea too.

This most Northern point of the island is a real gem! The small cave is breathtaking - famous photo spot for celebrities and tourists alike. Make sure you change into your bathing suits before heading into the caves - on the off chance that you can't resist swimming to the cave's edge where there's a huge drop into the sea!... More

Beautiful view from the most northern part of the island. Amazing to watch the crashing waves and blowing surf. The cave experience costs $20 Barbadian dollars. There are steep stairs to get down to the caves so it is not accessible to those with mobility issues. Once inside the caves there are stunning cut out views of the ocean and... More
