Located on eastern side of Boracay Island, these are in bit bad shape and seems not visited frequently by tourists. We did not ventured inside, but from outside it was bit scary. Not suggested to go inside if you are with kids.

The trip is a dangerous one, as the tides could suddenly come up, and trap people inside. Plus being trapped means drowning also. And there were no bats to be found. My recommendation is to spend your money elsewhere.

Yes, you can kayak there, but timing is everything. Needs to be calm wind, or blowing from the Northeast. The swinging of the currents around low tide can make landing your kayak tricky, or even dangerous. There are... More
