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.

The sight from the caves are beautiful. the power of nature as the waves crash on the rocks is awesome. the animal flowers are a little overrated but the whole experience is well worth it

I don't know how people can rate this anymore than a 5 star. The view is absolutely incredible from the top. You can't find anyplace else like it on the island. Inside the cave is also awesome. There is also a place to go swimming...More

We thought it was pricey for the cave "tour", but the views were pretty special. We didn't swim, but laughed with others as they would get washed into the cave with a large wave. We had a rental car to come and go on our...More

Wow, what an amazing place. We took the bus from the Gap, which was an experience on it's own. The cave was open, but no swimming because of North tides coming in. (this was early December) Our guide was JJ, he was terrific and spent...More

Beautiful spot to see. You climb down and walk around with a guide. It can be slippery, but doable. We went swimming which was great. The guide didn’t rush us and let us take our time in the natural pool. Be prepared to be wet....More

At the Northern Shore of Barbados you will find a cave system with a natural pool - yes you can swim in this 7-8 feet deep cave sea. It is only accessible with a guide. The battering waves below gives an amazing view but some...More

Loved the food and didn't expect the view to be so great. Then headed down into the cave for a swim which was AMAZING. Ridiculously slippery so avoid flip flops if you can but I really enjoyed the tour.
