Fodor's Expert Review Animal Flower Cave

Northern Barbados Cave Fodor's Choice

Small sea anemones, or sea worms, resemble flowers when they open their tiny tentacles. They live in small pools in this sea cave at the island's very northern tip. The cave itself, discovered in 1750, has a coral floor that ranges from 126,000 to 500,000 years old, according to geological estimates. Coral steps lead through an opening in the "roof" into the cave. Bring your bathing suit. Depending on that day's sea swells, you can swim in the naturally formed pool—and the view of breaking waves from inside the cave is magnificent. Steep stairs, uneven surfaces, and rocks make this an unwise choice for anyone with walking difficulties. The Restaurant, perched at the top of the cliff, opens daily for lunch. The property has a playground, as well as lots of pet goats and sheep wandering around. The far north is an alternative route to the east coast, and this is a great place to stop for an adventure and refreshments.
