The walk towards the cave is this beautiful bamboo forest. You don’t really need a guide as it is well sign posted. Do wear the hard hats provided at the cave entrance as you can easily bump your head inside the cave and don’t forget to use a torch as it is pitch black inside most parts of the cave. You would have to squat or do duck walks for short distances inside the cave. It was fun to explore although I wouldn’t say the mirror aspect of it was anything spectacular. The whole experience however is worthwhile.

What a waste of time, a rip-off.
When you pay your entrance fee, they'll ask you if you want to pay extra for a guild. We opted to go without a guide thinking there would be signs inside the park.
We wondered around and basically saw nothing. Just a few rock formations.
There are NO cave pools or little water falls as some might see on the Google Map. Don't waste your time going there. It's a total disappointment.

An amazing and unique place still trapped back in time that has its own wonderful adventures and sights. Diverse culture that can also provide 5 star luxury at very affordable rates. Highly recommend if you want an Island adventure.

Don't waste your time visiting this place. It is the worst cave i have ever been. A lot of mosquitoes. The place is small. Don't forget to bring flashlight.

If you like stalactites and fossils -that's a place to go, otherwise probably just stay on the beach ;)

I had quite low expectations of this cave based on the TripAdvisor reviews, and was expecting it to be a quick photo stop.

Instead it was an in depth tour of the cave. The cave entrance is beautiful with hanging vines and tree roots. We were given helmets and had to crawl through parts of the cave which made it feel like an adventure. We saw fossils of coral, fish and even a turtle. There were several bats hanging from the ceiling, and even some bats flying around. Interesting stalagmites and stalactites. Lots of great photo opportunities. There is also umbrella rock to see on the way back to the car park. Be warned though, it can be very hot and we did get very sweaty, and there are mosquitos during the day here!

Overall a fun quick tour and definitely worth a visit.

Can't remember how much the entrance was but there are monkeys at the parking area. Bought a young coconut for 20k, drank the water, split it open and gave it to the monkeys. They love it....

It took around 500 meter from parking to the cave, passing through bamboo plantation. The road are paved and you will not get lost, easily accessed. There's toilet available halfway walking through the cave, poor condition but I've seen worse. At least they have running water so its functional.

You need a guide, that's certain. I was there alone and have no idea where to go, but luckily someone else is having a guide so I just stick around and listen to them. You'll enter a cave (use the provided helmet at the entrance), see a turtle fossils (quite interesting - but not sure if it is a turtle or just a coincident), the rock formation and the batu cermin / mirror caves. Apparently when raining, the water form a small pond and sunlight reflected. Also the rock formation has crystal sedimentation, which makes it blink. I was told - it is best to visit around 10-11 am when the sunrays passes through the hole, illuminate the crystal within the cave. Unfortunately it wasnt the case when I was there (bad timing).

As mentioned, not suitable for solo travelers or someone visiting without guide.

Go only if u have never visit a cave before, have extra time to kill or extra money to throw away!!!
Entrance fee cost 50000. Basically u can see everything in less than 15 mins time. Nothing spectacular..U won't lose out anything if u don't visit it. Regret not listening to the advices here not to visit.

Make sure you go at the right time of day or you’ll miss the “highlight” of the experience like we did. They nicknamed this place Mirror Cave for the effect the sun has on a particular area within the cave when it shines in. I believe it’s around noon. Check before you go! Aside from that, it’s a quick visit- maybe an hour side-trip if you want to kill some time. Small bats, a sea turtle and coral fossils, other evidence that the area had been under water, etc.
