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 is a long way from the rest of the attractions but so glad we made it up here. We arrived just after the last tour went down. Fortunately, one of the guides offered to take us down so I was pleased that another couple...More

We visited as recommended rather than the Harrison cave complex. We did both in the end. The caves are at the far north of the island in Lucy parish. There is free parking and a restaurant with amazing sea views. The walking tour for the...More

A wonderful feat of nature the caves have been eroded by the sea and a tour guide shows you around pointing out the anemones in the pools. There is an opportunity to swim in one of the caves as well. Make sure you wear sports...More

We loved our visit here. We enjoyed our time in the sea cave even though we paddled in the pool and didn't swim. Our guide was great and didn't rush us at all. The views from inside the cave and outside from the cliff are...More

We decided to take a drive up to North Point and while we didn't actually go into the Animal Flower cave, the grounds and views of the ocean from the premises are more than worth the visit!! It's not that expensive to enter the cave,...More

This is a beautiful site, although the seaweed hampered some of it's beauty. The North Point is a welcomed contrast to the south coast (where we stayed). The water is rough and constantly crashing into the cliffs. You have to walk through the cave to...More

This is worth a visit. It's not expensive and swimming in the natural cave pool is a unique experience. As for the 'animal flower' bit......we didn't see any animals and only a clutch of tiny flowers. Not really sure why it's called that? There is...More

Yes I would say we swam for about 15 or so minutes. The tour guide didn't rush us but there was another part of the cave to explore. I think our total tour was 45 minutes. Plenty of time.

Good morning, The tour takes approx 20 mins (or longer if you wish to swim in the cave) Allow time for getting to and from the cave. Nearby attractions worth visiting are St Nicholas Abbey Huntes Gardens
