You will find hundreds of fruit bats all around and inside this cave. This is a nesting ground for bats. Pretty cool place to see.

I visited the bat caves just at sunset. I had been told that the bats fly out of the caves at sunset. Sure enough out they came. So many that they almost turned the sky black.

The bat caves with their cliff-side forests are best appreciated from the sea. Hire a small speed boat or motor banca and hug the coast until you see thousands of these giant flying foxes hanging upside down waiting for dusk to feed on fruit and insects.

You need a guide to go there, otherwise they won't let you in. But you can come around on a motorbike trip. Becareful, the visit can be quite tricky, if not dangerous. It's slippery, dark, the tide can come up quickly. So even if the guide isn't really useful, just take it cause he knows the place better than you... More

Located on eastern side of Boracay Island, these are in bit bad shape and seems not visited frequently by tourists. We did not ventured inside, but from outside it was bit scary. Not suggested to go inside if you are with kids.

Try and go here and your told its closed. Maybe local guides go here, but we didn't find one and did ask around. Hotels say closed and locals say you cant get there anymore.

They were really nice and worth going to. A nice sight, not to scary or expensive. A good way to spend some time......
