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.

Well worth the time to take a peek into the underground world of this truly tantalising natural wonder. Wear sensible foot ware and your bathing suit too as there are pools to swim in, Great photo ops here

A Barbados must see. The guide is super friendly, the cave is beautiful, and the location is spectacular. After you leave the cave, there's a small path that you might not notice. It's short but it leads to the most spectacular views you'll see on...More

Well worth a visit - a guide takes you down into the cave and gives you plenty of time to look around, take photographs and - if you wish - swim in the large pool. Definitely a must see when in Barbados but be sure...More

We enjoyed going to this cave. The views from here are simply gorgeous. If you can wear water shoes. The rocks are a bit slippery. You will have a guide who points out the animal flora which is cool. Mostly, we enjoyed the views.

Beautiful place to visit, stunning views along the coast and we had a fabulous guide who was very informative. The kids loved swimming in the cave and looking at the 'flowers' - thoroughly recommend this.

It was the ''Coastal" Tour arranged by Williams Tours Barbados - well worth doing if you have the opportunity.
