  • We visited the cave as part of our island hopping tour with El Nido resorts. However, the beach area, we we're told, was off limits for us. To enter the cave you have to be somewhat agile and careful since you have to crawl over pointy rocks. Our guide was prepared with a yoga mat for us. The cave was awesome. It's a home to bats and Pacific Swallows, stalagmites, stalactites, and apparently an old burial ground where tribes used to burn the dead. The was a rock formation that looked a lot like Mickey mouse
  • Nice small cave, with natural light entering trough small holes, creating a beautiful sight. The beach in front of the cave is just average, so don't plan on spending a lot of time here.
  • The cave is small and smellsbad. Nothing to compare with the underground river !
  • Love it

Where to stay in El Nido

Long since established as a domestic tourist destination, El Nido's growing international reputation has led to a number of eco-tourism and resort-style options popping up in recent years. The main town on the west coast offers the greatest choice, with sprawling luxury resorts, hotels, and guesthouses all enjoying convenient access to the surrounding islands. Staying on one of the islands presents an exciting alternative, although you'll find the choice largely limited to luxury hotels.
