Cathedral Caves, El Nido

(120+ reviews on the web)
Cave
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. Arrange your visit to Cathedral Caves and discover more family-friendly attractions in El Nido using our El Nido trip itinerary planner.

  • This day we took Tour B which includes 2 caves and 3 beaches/snorkeling sites. The Cathedral Cave was one of the caves I thought it was a bit boring. Of course as soon you come closer it looks amazing...  more »
  • El Nido is a place to behold! The tour was really awesome! We saw a lot of beautiful islands. This cave had super blue waters  more »
  • With the Tour B visited this cave from the outside as it was not possible to enter inside. The cave is special and very beautiful are the colours of the sea and rocks.

  • The islet that houses this cave is an otherwise unassuming rock in the middle of this vast, clear ocean. Once you sail around the back, though, you're greeted with the gaping maw of nature. The outrigger will not take you inside, however they will not stop you from swimming in to explore on your own. I highly suggest doing so, with life vests if necessary, as this is one of the few places left on earth where you can truly escape.
  • Was not able to enter inside
  • A communion with nature
  • I visited 2 years ago.
