it still smells pungy (the bats make it so).it still looks gloomy (just like the other caves i've been to). it still has its mystery appeal that attracts thousands of tourists daily.

the tour guide was a clown. aside from the witty lines that he threw most of the time which cracked us up, he was also a good photographer. he knew which corners of the cave register good camera angles.

hinagdanan cave is an underground delight for newbie spelunkers. it has brackish water conducive for swimming until 4pm only. it is very accessible, affordable (50 pesos entrance fee) and available from 8am til 5pm daily.

Lovely opportunity to get underground in a limestone cave with brackish but clean water to swim in. It wasn't crowded the day we went (weekday). The cost was $P50 to enter and $P75 to swim. We were only there less than an hour but were very glad we went.

This is the only cave in panglao island where you can visit and swim. The water is crystal clear and it's also a quiet place. Souvenir stores are there. A must place to visit.

Great spot when traveling with kids, especially when it's too hot for the beach. Bring some good shoes and a bathing suite just in case.

Despite other reviews saying the cave was really crowded, when I arrived (maybe around 10:30am) I was the only one swimming and there was just one other family there taking photos. The little birds flitting about inside are cute and it's a beautiful cave. Lots of vendors selling drinks, snacks etc outside. Small entry fee and around 200PHP tricycle ride from Alona Beach.

Nothing special.

Small cave with many people. Slippery and not recommended for senior citizens or very young children. Water doesnt seem clean. Will not recommend.

I felt seeing the cave was amazing! My total cost coming from Alona Beach was about $12. That included motorbike ride there and back, and entry fee into the cave along with a swim. The entry fee into the cave with swimming was about 125 pesos! I was fortunate enough to have the entire cave to myself. Which made it terrific to take pictures. Entry into the cave involves steep set of stairs with railing. Where good fitting shoes so you don’t slip. Before I swam I put my flip flops on. There is some sharp rocks in the cave , if your careful it shouldn’t be a problem , Also some small birds in there flying around. Dripping water falling from the ceiling making a hollow sound it’s neat !
If you’re in the area…. Why miss it.

The cave is interesting, but not as big as I had thought. I didn't swim, but people do soak in the cave lagoon. (I would be worried about contaminants from the bats who live and sleep above it). The cave has beautiful rock formations and colors, but I was expecting to see move, a deeper and longer cave. It's simply in and out, not too much to explore.

It is a very small cave with beautiful rock formations inside. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit because there is a small pond inside the cave for you to swim. The water is very cold. Life jackets are provided for free. There is an entrance fee of 125 pesos for those who wish to swim and 100 pesos for those who do not want to swim. If you don’t plan to see, it takes less than 5 minutes to see the rock formations. The reason you take more than 5 minutes is you have to line up for your group pictures or selfies. I suggest you swim inside the pond so that you enjoy the cave.
