This could probably made through the force of nature, the seawater during high tide. From time to time it is carved until it gave in to a hole and made it bigger to form an arch...that is only my opinion. Yet many of the travelers/tourists made their stop for a pose - a remembrance of their trip in this part... More

The cave can be seen going down steep stairs, it's a 5 minute walk to go down and the view is excellent. You can actually go up the cave to take pictures. Recommend to people that can go up and down stairs. It's a very short walk

It's not a cave. It's just a hole on a rock. Perfect for picture taking and nothing else. Anilon Cave (similar structure and not a cave as well) has better views and has better adventure. You can stop by here from Blue Lagoon.

Bantay Abot Cave is one of the tourist spots that you can go, however, you should bear in mind that the waves are really strong during high tide, so you may go to the Bantay Abot Cave at low tide, where the waves are minimal at most, and you don't need to fear for your life that the water and...

You have to go down the rocks and sea before reaching this cave but it's worth it. It's good for photo ops. The sea is still blue and fresh.

It's a hole on a rock, there's not much to discover. I guess the most exciting thing to do is take pictures while pretending to be wall climbing. Having said that, the sea view is amazing. Be careful with going up and down. There's not much to hold on to and some soil may be loose.

A big protruding rock with a whole. We dropped by for a while and took loads of pictures posing in different angles as if carrying the rocks. It was hilariously fun!
