Batu Cermin Cave, Labuan Bajo

2.4
#7 of 11 in Nature in Labuan Bajo
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. Make Batu Cermin Cave a centerpiece of your Labuan Bajo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Labuan Bajo trip planner.

  • Their location was inside the town Labuan Bajo. The recommended time is the exact middle of the day and not cloudy. Spacious parking lot. When filling out a guest book, offer guided tours. For those who are not local people who understand the delivery location, we recommend that you use the Guide. Walk past the gate of garden of bamboo about 5 minutes. Unfortunately tourist facilities in the complex is damaged is not well maintained. Cave mouth in and out is where the most flattering to foto2. Because in narrow and dark inclined. In the middle of the cave, head of security for the helmet is provided because in some spots the roof of its caves is very low. In the main spot, the sunlight entering through a slit above the cave and bouncing on the rocks. That's why most fitting as the Sun beat down. Spotnya narrow and must turn. The aisle inside the cave there is a branching. So we recommend that you use a guide rather than a stray and should be back.
