This is easy to get to and worth the journey. It's an impressive cave with beautiful clear water and you definitely need to take some time here to swim.

We went there just before 5pm, was not possible to swim because they allow to do it until 3pm if i don't remember wrong. Entrance ticket is 50p. When we visited there was only one more couple, so it was very nice to do pictures, specially with the help of the guide inside the cave, he made very nice shots... More

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 completely surrounded by groups of people. Small souvenirs shops around and few places to grab a bite. Worth a stop.

This is a hidden gem. Not the biggest cave but it was very clean and the water was very refreshing. It is a mix of ocean water and fresh water and the water level varies depending on the tide. I didn't like that they charge extra for swimming but it was totally worth it.

This is a small cave. But you can swim in the water. It looks very clean. However, I think that in order to preserve the integrity of the cave, the locals need to supervise the swimmers and visitors of the cave. Visitors should avoid to touch the stalactites and stalagmites, and including the swimming, they should not be allowed to... More

Worth going if you are on Panglao. Bring your swimming things as you are permitted, for a small additional fee, to swim in the cavern. I was happily surprised that a guide attached himself to us at the entry and insisted on taking lots of pics of us with our camera in the best spots, but didn't want paying at... More
