(3.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)

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.

  • There's this nice wide pool inside the cave. The water is so cold, and the cave is not very well lit. Entrance fee is Php 55, plus Php 75 if you want to swim.  more »
  • Very nice cave with friendly guides. However, it was the experience down a bit because of the yelling salespeople on the outside.

  • Not super impressed by the place but quite ok, worth a visit if for nothing but diving or relax on the island.

  • 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.
