Review of Bukilat Cave

Bukilat Cave
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 June 2017

Of the 8 well visited natural caves in the Camotes Islands, the Bukilat cave is the grandest and most visited cave. It is one of the major tourist spots of Camotes. The interior is illuminated by light coming from the entrance and the crevices on the ceiling portion of the cave. The water level change with the tides of the sea. Tourists and locals usually come here when the tide is high. Some choose to swim in the water whenever its high tide. You might want to consider that when you are planning to take a photo without people in the cave. The cave is very accessible. You only need to go down a stairway.

We went here by a group of friends. You can swim inside this cave. It's a huge cave where most of the tourist go.

This was my 3rd visit to this cave & my first on a bright sunny day.

I just love the beauty of the cave with sunlight streaming from the hole above. The clear waters beckon one to take a dip or just dangle your feet into the water.

The cave stones made of stalactites are a big awe & wonder to my simple being.

The cave is much more bigger than the first cave i visited ( paraiso) and much cheaper..
Entering the cave.. I just said wow.. Its awesome...majesting and nice cave to look for. Theres some history behind this cave you can see @the entrance .
