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.

Bring water shoes if going with small kids. Ours are 6 and 3.5 girls and this was great and totally doable. Our guide was patient and helpful. The pools and caves are really amazing.

Gorgeous little spot. You go down the steps into the cave and watch the waves crashing up into the cave wall openings. As you climb the rocks it feels like an adventure, we jumped from rocks into a deep small pool which was thrilling (if...More

Fantastic views and shaded viewing spots. We didn’t bother with the cave as it sounded like it was slippy.

Hi, yes you can but the surrounding area at the pool level can get very slippery so be very careful if not surefooted.
