Visiting the cave entails timing . Entering is a physical challenge somewhat. Need to contort somewhat. Inside is a beauty with several rock formations. Passage of light inside makes for good photo opportunities.

Nothing really outstanding inside the cave, its a bit hard to go in and out though. The beachfront outside was good. This is where you will have your lunch time.

As far as caves go you would not rate this one highly. It is different as much as nature intended. I thought the novelty aspect of getting in and out was the highlight.

This is a very nice a well-lit cave. Maybe being not as attractive as the nearby Cathedral Cave, it is located by a beach which allows a nice picnic stop. Since some locals are not familiar with this place here is how to get there. The mark on Google Maps is pretty close but not that accurate. You need to find an abandoned beach resort "carved" between high rocks which is southwards over the cape from Snake Island and Samayu Private Cove. When on the beach, go left (if standing face to the beach) until you find an opening in the rock, about two meters wide and half meter in height. Regardless of the tight entrance the access to the cave is easy. Since the cave has open roof, you will not need any torch during the day hours. When we have been there, it was accessible on high water (see the photo) so that it should be dry on low water.
The beach is also nice and the corrals (mostly on the other side of the beach) are good for snorkeling.. Beware of monkeys. Accessible by any kind of smaller boats (bhanga, dinghy, etc.) .
Some review state that the place is very crowded. We have been there around 4pm (late January) and had the very place privately.

It is really not an impressive cave. How you get inside, through a small hole is somehow funny but I am sure you will see other caves much more beautiful anywhere else.

This was part of the island hopping package offered by the resort so we had a look-see of what it was.

The entrance to the cave is a small hole - so the guides would always bring some form of matting so tourists can enter safely into the cave.

The cave was home to some of the first people of the island and apparently fossilized human bones can be found within the cave complex.

Given that it's also open to the public, we happened to encounter a bunch of intoxicated tourists that were climbing some parts of the caves (one almost fell) so its typical of local guides to not be trained and for rowdy tourists to come into the cave to vandalize and get themselves into trouble.

Would give this place a pass and you are better off snorkeling somewhere else instead of taking time to come into this cave.

This was our first destination. It was quite tricky to enter it because we had to go through a small hole. Our guide taught us how to get in so we do not get hurt. Was awestruck by the beauty of the cave. We can even hear the birds chirping...

I think there are a lot more amazing sites to see in El Nido. Our guide was very helpful, and explained how to get through the narrow opening. He also brought a mat which made it much easier. Our guide was really nice, and he let people who were not in our group use the mat as well. It does have a very strong oder, so if you are sensitive to smells, you might want to think twice before going into the cave.

It was great having a guide. He taught us how to position ourselves to get in this tiny crack to get into the caves. It was worth the effort. The caves limestone formations was absolutely beautiful. Small attraction but it gave our guide's time to get our lunch ready while we explored this cave.
