(400+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Illuminated by the sunlight that comes through the holes in the ceiling, Hinagdanan Cave features a deep lagoon, a popular bathing spot for locals and tourists. Enter the cave through a narrow hole and follow the steep concrete steps while holding on to a rope railing. Observe a variety of large stalactites and stalagmites as you go, taking a moment to notice the swallows nesting in small ceiling holes. Outside the entrance, locals sell souvenirs like shirts and bags, as well as fruit shakes and other delicacies.

  • Cave was not big as they said no allowed to swim. But still people dive and no one compline. Just entrance free for 50 peso a person. この洞窟に行くには1人50pesoの入場料が必要です。中は大きくはないです。泳ぐのが禁止されてますが泳いでも誰も怒りません。  more »
  • Highly recommended to walk down the steep steps. But not suitable for elderly and the caves inside are wet, dark and slippery. Worth the experience but take less than 10 mins.  more »
  • This is not a large cave, but interesting. Local guide was good at taking pictures, practically a photo session once you hand over the camera.  more »

  • It's so scary to swim alone but the guide with us always assured that there's nothing inside the water. The pool inside is cold and a bit salty. I'd best recommend using aqua shoes and using go pro. The guides are 3 in 1: comedian + tour guide + photographer. No needfor tripods and selfie sticks. The guides have tons of photo tricks in store for you
  • Nothing to exciting. Only one chamber. Water is crystal clear.... but smells like guano so we didn't swim.
  • Pictures don't do it justice. I am from Bohol and from Dauis, too but not from Bingag. The lagoon is so refreshing and the holes in the cave light up the place. It's so natural.. If you are one of those negative people, please be honest.
  • Nice little cave with a lake inside. Entrance fee 50php in 2016. Try the mango shake outside close to the barrier.
  • When the owner of the area was clearing the decaying branches of the land when he found the hole and was accidentally discovered the Hinagdanan Cave . The owner throws a stone and then he heard a splash. It called Hinagdanan means (laddered) because the owner built a ladder to get into the cave.
