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 Animal Flower Cave was a great little find. After taking steps down into the natural cave area you get to see the both the might and serenity of the ocean up close. The pool is simply beautiful. It's small,but relaxing and a great respite from the heat. It's also really nice that you are accompanied by a guide who... More

Rented a car for one day and drove to the northern point of the island to the cave. The parking lot overlooks a stunning bluff with crashing waves. Very cool to swim inside a natural cave. Onsite restaurant was extremely good also.

Visited here with my two teens and we loved it! Be sure to take your swim togs so you can have a swim in the cave. Great experience - glad we went. Stopped at the top of the road for a souvenir and the most fantastic fresh ginger and sorrel juice from Natasha! Such gentle friendly people.

We were recommended to visit and were glad we did. The trip into the cave is guided and can be done by anyone with reasonable mobility. Great views out over the ocean and interesting sea anemones (animal flowers). Some interesting little shops too. We also enjoyed the food here and can recommend (see separate review)

The caves are great but very slippery , I wouldnt go though for the actual flowers ( anemone ) as there are not that many. It really is worth seeing though.

This is such a lovely place the views are stunning, if you take a walk there's an amazing blow hole. The restaurant is lovely and the bar is also very nice. We didn't swim in the cave because we are both a bit clastaphobic, although I don't know if it is. Anyway even without the swim it's gorgeous. Remember to... More

Once you find this place, it is absolutely beautiful and very cool. It is very low-key and informal, and in a beautiful place. Our guide was very informative and laid-back, and took lots of pictures of us for us. He made sure we were very careful and took great care of us. He had great stories about the cave and... More

This is worth the views. There is not much to see in there otherwise but the VIEWS! It is very hot down there and totally worth taking your suit down to swim in the pool!

What an amazing experience! A bit of a drive but well worth it! $30 Barbados (15 US) per adult person which includes a guided tour. About 30 steep steps down to the cave where your allowed to swim and hang out for a few minutes if tides permit. Beautiful view of the atlantic ocean through the cave. Very friendly Bajan... More
