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... More

Most beautiful cave Ive ever been to, cheap entrance fee, No transportation back so hold on to your ride. The center of the cave is so majestic that it humbles you to say a little prayer...Its a personal experience for me, youll love it! Perfect pictures no matter what angle you choose. Just a little store outside, no restaurants.

You gonna hire a motorcycle to get here, we came with car. The cave is very secluded and very far away. But once you find it, is worth to drive that far. Is well signed the way up there, at first in big letter and suddenly we thought we lost because we can't see sign anymore but there is only... More

For 20 philiphines peso you'll get in to the cave (if you arrive with car +10 peso or with motorbike +5 pesos). I don't have words to describe this place. Big, I mean really big compared to other caves on iceland, and nice fresh water for swimming. Good walue for money.

1. Bukilat Cave I didn’t feel that Bukilat cave was worth going out of the way for, but if you are going that way anyway stop in for a look. 2. Lake Danao I was unimpressed by this, especially since it seemed to be the thing everyone said check out. 3. Mactang Beach I just happen to come across Mactang... More

This cave is over-developed. Too much artificial structure added to the natural formations. Plenty of stalagmites and stalactites were sacrificed for construction of un-appealing walkways and stairs. The water was murky when I visited it and there were lots of empty plastic soda bottles floating around. I have seen a lot of caves in the Philippines and this one was... More

When we visited this cave last May, 2014, together with members of our spelunking group, we were not expecting this type of cave structure. A hole underground which is connected to the sea because it simulates with the ocean's low and high tides. Not quite impressed the way cave is managed. The huge stalaclites are already damaged and destroyed. According... More

I like the previous reviewer visited when it was low tide so did not see water in the cave. Would be a great place for a swim at high tide. When you arrive there is just a hole in the ground which you enter. This is located in the middle of the fields and I certainly wasn't expecting to encounter... More
