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.

If you are planning an island tour be sure this location is on it. The view is incredible! The caves are amazing , and the tour guides are very informative. The water was too rough for us to swim in the caves, but it would be awsome if we could have done that. The grounds have great trails to walk... More

Worth the drive to see the incredible views of cliffs and crashing east coast waves! Everything except the cave is free. The cafe is decent, with washrooms. Had an icecream and watched the waves from the shaded seating areas around the cliff. Play park for kids. Souvenirs Walked around the cliff area; not good for kids. Keep them super supervised....

...the experience on the grounds was worth the stop (on a Williams Tours excursion). The day was sunny and the seas were rough. Glad we weren't on a boat! But the wave action against the cliffs was magnificent and mesmerizing. Please check out the couple of photos I've posted.

Found this place by accident, starting driving north and seen the signs, just kept following and arrived 20mins later. Had a good look around, not much to see really. The little shop with touristy stuff was ok. Cliffs and water smashing into the rocks. Didn't use the restaurant and bar but looked ok. The caves were cool but bit boring... More

What a lovely experience being looked after by our guide who was part of the family who 'owned' the cave. Make sure you take the appropriate footwear as the rocks can be slippery and there is also a very good scenic cliff walk - people in flip flops really struggled! Lots of fantastic photograph stops to take in the beautiful... More

My third trip to the cave and still breathtaking. The beauty of being underground looking out to the crashing sea is really something to behold. It costs $20 barbados to go inside with a personal guide which is manditory. Walking around inside the cave is rocky and slippery- wear appropriate footwear not flip flops. There is a restaurant above on... More

We drove from Speightstown in St. Peters Parish and it took about 30 minutes to get up there. We met the resident goat who roams the grounds and she was a sweetheart as were the employees. We learned that the family who runs the tours are the owners. Our guide was awesome and easy going. You must be very careful... More
