Hinagdanan Cave, Dauis

3.3
#3 of 19 in Nature in Bohol Province
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.

    Having read and seen plenty online about this cave I was quite excited to see it for myself. We took a tricycle there and, after dodging the many tourists stalls peddling their various wares, took the...  more »

    The cave is accessible via a small flight of stairs. There are massive stalactites and other rock formations inside. The interior is lighted both naturally and artificially, and swimming is permitted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The management permits only around 30 persons at a time for safety reasons.

    Nice cave, nice to swim in but they made it too touristy that it lost its charm. The entrance fee of 50 php per person (+75 php if u want to swim) is not too bad but compared to other attractions in Bohol, this is already priced too much. Come during the weekdays if you want to avoid the crowd.

    An amazing experience with the guide visiting these caves. He was knowledgeable and knew all the sweet spots for pictures. The caves themselves are serene and beautiful. You can also choose to go for a swim in the waters. And their are birds chirping all the time to make the caves sound better.

    Beautifull cave! It's quite small but really good for a swim. The entrance fee (50php just to have a look and another 75 php to swim) is reasonable as they keep the place clean and well maintained.
