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.

IT was truly an amazing view.. There sea that surrounded the cliffs were amazing, there was a restaurant with great food and there were a couple of shops also selling souvenirs. The cave was below the restaurant area and costed 20 Bajan dollars to get a tour for adults and 10 for kids. It was great

This is really worth visiting. Great place for lunch after a refreshing swim in the cave. My children had a great time and we will visit again before we go.

I visited the flower cave with my two children; a 13 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. They both thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I gave it a 3 because I thought the tour would have been longer. I also expected the cave to be bigger. The first part of the tour lasts between 7 - 15 minutes... More

We were so excited to see the animal flower cave and felt hugely disappointed! It was very expensive to get in and were weren't warned how dangerous it was. I wouldn't recommend it for people unstable on their feet or elderly people. I know it's natural and nature but it's really very dangerous underfoot. No signs or warnings of this.... More

We drove from hasting to see this wonderful cave. The views yes are fantastic but the flowers were non existent the caves are dangerous under foot and definately not directly elderly or people who struggle on their feet. A guide took us down and then when we were finished took us to his stall and hassled us to buy goods.... More

A real contrast to the rest of the island. You would think that you were on a different island. If have a rental car, it is a must see.

Always a great place to visit when in Barbados ( I have probably been there 20 times). The views are amazing and a real contrast to what you would see anywhere else on the island. My onle issue has always been the ones selling goods at the entrance to the road in. This is something the cave operators have no... More

This cave is very beautiful and big. The views are gorgeous and on top of being able to walk around in the cave, you also get to go for a little swim inside the cave. Definitely worth the drive to the north coast. When you get there there is a small fee to go inside the cave and the small... More

The cave is spectacular. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes with traction as it can be a bit of a difficult walk through the slipper rocks inside. The walk to into the cave is pretty steep, but the view inside is well worth it. Bring your swimsuit as you can swim in the coral pool inside of the cave if... More
