Naturally formed, natural tranquility! The Animal Flower Cave in Barbados

CaribbeanDays can take you to this natural phenomenon that is the most soothing experience in the world!

The Animal Flower Cave in Barbados is located under the cliffs at North Point, St. Lucy, Barbados. It is the island’s lone accessible sea cave. It was discovered by its seaward entrance in 1780 by two English explorers. The cave stands six feet above the high water mark although it was formed at sea level. This has occurred because Barbados is rising at 1 inch per 1000 years.

There are coral steps which lead down through former blowhole in the roof into the cave. These steps were built in 1912. Sea anemones can still be found inside the cave, which are locally called ‘animal flowers’. These sea anemones are what lent that name to this cave.
