All of the caves on Camotes have their charm. This one is not as pretty as Bukilat and not as intimate as Paraiso but is nice and spooky. It has a longish water corridor that you... read more

It has a longish water corridor that you can wade or swim through. At the end if you climb over some rocks you can wait in the darkness and scare the pants... More

Inexpensive attraction, simply laid out. It is not 5 star by any means but really worth the effort just to enjoy the underground pool and swim

One of the caves in Camotes. You have to walk a little bit to reach the water. Inside, you can see a Grotto. The water is cold. Also, it is better to be here without too much people. The entrance fee is Php20.00.

In the cave, it has a part of water that you can swim. Not really far from the entrance and you will see this. Be reminded that only few people could fill the inside of the cave and swim. As you will see inside, it is really beautiful, above average it is. Note that the entrance part of the cave... More

The water inside the cave is clear and cold. It was kind of creepy experience swimming inside the cave but the experience is all worth it.

A small quaint cave hidden below a pile of rock. Its entrance is deceivig and as you go down you can see a small pool of clear looking water. It is interestingly small yet able to accomodate tall people to go through.

One had to be careful going down into the caves as was very slippery. And if you are not the height of Filipinos but taller then you have major problem of constantly banging your head on the

We had this place all to ourselves when we went there and really had a super relaxing swim. It was kind of creepy at first but it was really fun. The water isn't so deep but please do be careful, it can also rise suddenly. There is no lifeguard so swim at your own risk.

This is a completely forgettable cave, but, it is close to San Francisco, and, on a scorching day, could save your life. The stairs are well made, but the dampness makes it a cautious trek. It is only a short cave, at least the part we are allowed to visit, so, a good one for young children, provided you hold... More
