#2 of 6 in Nature in Panglao Island
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. Plan trip to Dauis with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • Palawan may have a huge cave you need a boat for, but this is one you can walk. There are bigger and badder caves in the world, but this is here if you plan to travel to the Philippines. The guys givi...  more »
  • If you like caves then this is for you. It was hot and dark inside as you can imagine, but the good news is you can actually swim in the water inside the cave to refresh. The entrance of the cave is s...  more »
  • Cool little experience of swimming in a cave for 75php. Quite crowded but if you stay a while you find the big groups leave and you have some quiet time before more groups appear. Really nice experien...  more »

  • Small, but very beautiful. The staff are volunteers and a fee to enter is very reasonable (50p) with children free. The fee to swim inside is additional 75p. Also you can tip your guide for the cave since they are only volunteers...I tipped 300p since our guide was most helpful in lifting my son and assistance with my mother across the slippery areas.
  • Nice place to chill. There's a small deep lagoon inside where you could relax and swim. It's pretty cold, so it's good for a tropical country. I have to add about the tour guide, he was hilarious as freak! My partner and I enjoyed our time with him there. I cant remember his name, but he has squinty eyes. Hinagdanan Cave is by so far my favourite tourist destination I had gone to in Bohol!
  • Nice place to visit if you are in the island and have 30 minutes time off. A small cave with a Lagoon full of stalactites. You can swim inside the lagoon. Outside plenty of shops to buy souvenirs and fruits and juices. The entrance per person is 50 pesos and 5 to park the motorbike
  • The cave is located on the Northern side of Panglao island. There is a 50 peso entrance fee to go in and it comes with a guide. After heading down the rocky stairs you end up in a cavern filled with water. You're able to go and have a swim in the fresh waters of the cave. The roof is covered with stalactites and quite rocky. There are life vests available for those that want it. We didn't swim, we just headed down to have a look. It was really humid inside, more so than outside. An interesting stop before heading to the airport.
  • I had a great time swimming here during our mini tour! The water temperature is just right. There are several fishes and the water was so clear. It's 8- 10feet deep.
