Cathedral Caves, El Nido

3.1
#9 of 18 in Nature in El Nido
Take a boat ride to explore Cathedral Caves. You can choose to stay on the boat and simply enjoy the view, or, if you're experienced and the tides are right, jump in the water and dive inside the cave. See the inside created naturally from the lava flow, with the entrance so magnificent that it resembles the architecture of a cathedral. Inside you'll find thousands of spiky stalactites hanging from the roof. To find out how to plan a trip to El Nido, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • Big boats can not get through this cave. It looks spectacular but swimming in it is prohibited due to strong current and sightings of sea snakes. Our boat moored at the cave's mouth for a brief while ...  more »
  • Stage of the Tower B. The banka comes before this rocky flaw in the shape of Bell Tower of Cathedral, to take pictures, but we did not penetrate. No doubt in a kayak, but it was not planned.
