About these ratings

Named for its sea anemones, Animal Flower Cave is the island's only accessible sea cave, located under the North Point cliffs in the parish of St. Lucy. Although it's not as popular as Harrison's Cave or beaches like Foul or Bottom Bay, you might want to make the jaunt from your hotel area to spend at least an hour exploring the caves and possibly swimming in its rock pools.

A writer tells Virtual Tourist: "The scenery around the Animal Flower Caves is spectacular. … It makes a nice place for a picnic lunch on a warm day." A previous visitor writes into Fodor's with: "Be sure to check out the views once leaving the caves -- they are spectacular. We would have missed them if not for the taxi driver showing us where to go." In other words, bringing your camera is a must. You should also wear comfortable, sturdy shoes to better navigate the rocks. And possibly tote a few (Barbadian) dollars -- there are a handful of craft stalls selling souvenirs near the cliffs.

You can visit the cave anytime, but its best to go when the sun's shining. Climbing or swimming in the area can be dangerous at night.
