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.

Unique site with spectacular cave and crashing waves, meeting of two oceans Atlantic and Caribbean. Well worth a visit.

We really enjoyed our stay we left Bridgetown in the morning and arrived here just after they opened. We had a personal tour as they were not busy and the views were out of this world. Kids loved swimming in the final cave. I would show up early to avoid the tours!

I would highly recommend visiting Animal Flower Cave. I wasn't sure what to expect based on reviews I'd read. When I walked up to the edge and looked over, I gasped. It's so beautiful! Unfortunately, we arrived late in the afternoon and it was closed. Tip: I didn't realize there were opening/closing hours - thought it was just open to... More

The actual cave visit is short and make sure you check tide times before you go. Wear sensible shoes the rocks are slippy and make sure you wear swim wear so you can take a dip. The Caves are amazing and afterwards you can walk down the rugged coast line which is breath taking to watch the waves so take... More

This visit will not take the whole day but it is worth seeing. For 10 dollars us each person you can go down in the cave for about 15 minutes and you can even take a swim if you like. You have to put your swimsuit before going down in the cave. Watch your steps it is slippery (I was... More

We did not find anything exciting about it, it's a cave in the cliff, nothing special, there is a small pond inside where you can swim a bit. I did not regret the money spent but to be honest this is just a tick in a list. Maybe you'll find it more interesting

visiting the flower cave was a great experience, not for people that are unsteady on their feet, stairs and steep and un level walking area. that aside it still was a wonderful experience, and the history of the cave very interesting. afterwards we went to the restaurant and had a table and could see where the sea met with the...

We ended up here in error but what a beautiful mistake.. This cave was amazing... took you right back to pirates and smuggling.. If i were an author, i'd come here to get inspiration for a story..
