Batu Cermin Cave, Labuan Bajo

(190+ reviews on the web)
Cave
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.

  • It takes about 20 mins to get to cave by car, from Labuan Bajo. It's easy by motorcycle as well. The road is a little bumpy, a few pot holes, here and there. A small entrance fee, when you get to the ...  more »
  • Spend a few hours touring these caves with a guide, very interesting formations that are a great diversion.  more »
  • Interesting to see a big cave like this without any man-made structures inside. This site is not easy, need to have good shoes and be able to go through some small openings.  more »

  • Cool place to experience a cave. Be careful of slippery rocks. The guides were helpful and nice. Good place to soak in nature for city boys.
  • The most interesting from this cave is the story behind it. It is recommended to use local guide so they can tell u a little about the history, and especially the photo spots that u dont want to miss them. The guide was very helpful and very kind. Although it is not the best place, I still recommend it for you.
  • We can see the unique cave with sunlight in there. The stone looks like certain formation (gorilla, mother mary, etc)
  • Cave from coral reef. You have to walk through narrow tunnel. Some rock looks like gorilla face, virgin mary. Unique spot near Labuan Bajo city.
  • Quite a big cave with a walk through huge bamboo trees. It doesn't look like it's well maintained.
