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.

I was hyped to see where the Atlantic Ocean met the Carabean sea. The place was a bit hard to find (we rented a car) and unfortunately, no explanation of where to look or what was happening. The trail was safe, but caution - no railing on cliffs, so if traveling with kids, add caution. The place was clean, and... More

Beautiful place.. After many days at Barbados sun, I came there with friend. Cave is nice but the top of my visit was swimming in cave. Very unique and beautiful experience. They also have a cute resto and bar at the top of the cave so it is also good way to relax after swimming in the cave...

Fantastic views of the sea and the waves crashing into the rocks. The flower cave was great and a superb view through one of the holes just above the sea level. I'm told this is where Billy Ocean recorded the video for his song Caribbean Queen. Unfortunately it was ruined by visiting the restaurant. The owner who served the food... More

The pictures of the animal flower cave in all of the publicity show lots of lovely multi coloured anemones. The caves are impressive but we only saw one sad little brown anemone on our visit. I don't know if they are in decline because of all the visitors traipsing through and being poked by the guides to close all the... More

You get good views from outside and inside the cave. You also get to swim in the cave (unless the sea is rough) and this proved fun. I took my snorkel mask so I could see underwater. There's not much to see. However, the fun part is when a big wave crashes in tumbling all those swimming around the cave.... More

It is an hour drive from the Hilton hotel and it is worth the time. The views are amazing and just thinking about that you are actually at a place where Atlantic Ocean meets Caribbean Sea is great. There is a small waterview restorant if you're in need of refreshments. We didn't have time to get to the cave but... More

Could spend countless hours watching the power of the ocean and the dancing of the waves. The natural swimming pool carved in the hearth of the rock its a place that recharges your batteries.

There is more here than just the cave, which is relatively small. The anemones (i.e. animal flowers) are few and look quite unimpressive in person. Somehow our gopro video of them came out awesome though, so there is that. I would not recommend going into the cave unless you also swim, as there isn't that much else to do. Aside... More
