Hinagdanan Cave, Dauis

(3.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of the main sightseeing spots in Panglao. I've never been, we decided to go there. The entry is not for people with go problems very steeply, rather. Since the cave was part of our tour, I found the price not overpriced now, the money is used so the conservation and Filipinos are not very rich. Otherwise, it is a stalactite cave with Lake. Visit goes pretty quickly, because it is of course not huge. I would recommend every tourist to book the visit as part of a tour.

  • Otherwise you can save but the visit. You don't need more than 5 minutes. Quite small and if rush is even not worthwhile.

  • It is a small cave but very nice. You enter after paying a small fee (like in most filipinos attractions). Water is clean and fresh. Depending on the moment you can find yourself totally alone or comp...  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.
