Animal Flower Cave

more Barbados things to do

The Animal Flower Cave is located at the most northerly point of Barbados in the parish of St.Lucy.

The name "Animal Flower Cave" comes from the sea anemones found in the pools of the cave. Some of these pools are deep enough for you to swim in.

There are also several openings looking out to sea, offering spectacular views!
