Batu Cermin Cave, Labuan Bajo

3.3
#3 of 6 in Parks in Labuan Bajo
Cave Nature / Park
Explore the sunlit caverns of Batu Cermin Cave. Rays of light seep through holes in the cave and at certain times of day reflect on the rocks' mirror-like surfaces, creating abstract formations. If you choose to traverse the cave with the help of a guide, they'll point out the site's prehistoric ocean history, as evidenced in ancient fossils of turtles and fish. The tour requires that you wear a hard hat (provided) and demands a bit of crawling, which makes it unsuitable for people with mobility issues. Bring your own water and food, and enjoy observing the cave's wildlife and panoramic vistas. Put Batu Cermin Cave at the forefront of your travel plans using our Labuan Bajo vacation generator.

  • Amazing cave system! Totally unexpected and absolutely worth the quick drive to visit! Bring a flashlight :) P.S. getting a guide is not necessary, had more fun on our own!
  • When we are went to this place we use the google maps. But apparently the route was wrong. You shoul ask some local people. The view not so good. Our guide tour said that perfect time to go to cermin cave around 12 am till 2 pm.
  • Nice walk there surrounded by bambu. A torch and a helmet are included in the price, and you can pay a bit more to be guided. There is more light in the morning, between 9 and 10 am. It was fun getting in the cave, helmet is indispensable ;)
  • When I was here first time (2010) we could see many spiders inside the cave. Huge unique spiders which I haven't seen in another place. But when I was there again this year (2017) there is no spiders anymore. I asked local guides and they told me that "spiders've gone". But why, they don't know. I was quite sad because for me is this place just ordinary cave and nothing special. Spiders were the most interesting part of it. Nevermind, still good place to visit. Go by angkot from Labuan Bajo, price is 3500 idr. Then you have to pay e trance fee 10000 idr and better if ypu go with guide, just because they know lot of stories about this place. It's up to you how much you will give to the guide, we gave 10000 idr per person.
  • Entry fee IDR 10.000 but including guiding thats nice ! And nice cave also
