Stairway Cave ( Hinagdanan )

The cave is nice. They allow people to swin , The guides are entertaining and are trained to take photos for you. They know the good spots. There is a minimal entrance fee.

stop by on our way to alona beach. It is a very nice place and the entrance fee is 75 pesos. we were just there for a couple of minutes and then this tour guide suddenly arrived literally sounding like he is screaming and not even concerned about the nocturnal creatures living inside the cave. That was the bummer of... More

Worth going if you are on Panglao. Bring your swimming things as you are permitted, for a small additional fee, to swim in the cavern. I was happily surprised that a guide attached himself to us at the entry and insisted on taking lots of pics of us with our camera in the best spots, but didn't want paying at... More

Take you swimmers because the water is very clear and fresh. There are bats in the cave which have a distinctive smell!! The stairs down into the cave a very steep and slippery so good shoes are needed.

Very nice. It was well worth the trip. We had a very good guide. Transportation is a challenge, though.

This is a small area with a steep and slippery entrance/exit. You can swim in the water but be sure to use a life vest. The place can get crowded easily.

Dont bother. Not near main resort and not worth the 20 minute drive. Seen better caves lots of places. Watching the Goonies had to be the best ones though although caves of drach in Majorca come vlose!

Happy to have visited and the tour guide was hilarious. However, looking back, I wouldn't have lost sleep over missing this attraction. It's a small cave, slippery to walk in parts, in which you can swim if you choose! Many rock formations inside the cave. The staircase leading down is narrow and cramped (for many a foreigner). I would dedicate... More
