Pretty nice place. Make sure you have life vest to protect your knees when you will crawl inside the cave :)

A nice little attraction that fits well on a day tour. Easy entrance from the beach thru a small opening in the cliff brings you inside some chambers with plenty of day light from ceilings (no torch light necessary). Small beach with a lunch area with table and possibility to buy some drinks.

Accessed by a tricky twisting of the body through a naturally narrow cave entrance (more like a gap), Cudugnon Cave is certainly worth the visit. One cannot help but be amazed at God's created world in this tucked in wonder that is nothing short of marvelous to behold. I can tell you that I've visited attractive cave sites in like... More

What a great place, full of history and presence. It's a short 3 meter crawl through a small gap in the rock (Easy to Medium), and a small climb to a chamber (1.5 meters) which opens to a massive cave. You'll love it. Bring a camera, towel, foot wear (if you're not comfortable walking with you're bare feet)

This is a must see stop on one of the many island hopping tours. The limestone walls of this cave are exquisite!

The most cool thing about it is you have to roll over a tiny hole to get inside the cave. The cave doesn't have a lot of rooms, but does have to nook to take a peak in and let you imagination run free.

How did we get in? We rolled our body in a small hole just to get inside this cave. When we're there, it amazed us since the cave is spacious enough with capturing stalagmites and stalactites within.

This is a very interesting limestone cave located on Cudugnon Island. The entrance of the cave is on a small beach. The entrance is very small and you have to crawl through it. Once inside, you will see a big chamber. The formation of the limestones are beautiful. To get to the second chamber, you will need to take a... More

If you have the time, this is a short visit...the small home is off to the left of the beach. A towel will make it easy to crawl in. Getting out is easy. Inside it does smell like bird poop but seeing the cave is quick. My husband enjoying climbing. It is a tall cave inside but doesn't go very... More

It's a tight entrance so make sure to be careful on your way in. There's a dome like cave inside for you to roam around and enjoy, other than that... that's basically it.
