Named for its sea anemones, Animal Flower Cave is the island's only accessible sea cave, located under the North Point cliffs in St. Lucy parish. Although it's not as popular as Harrison's Cave, you might want to make the jaunt from your hotel area to spend at least an hour exploring the caves.
Previous travelers warned that though this cave is impressive, getting here is a challenge and the area offers little to do besides see the cave. Another word of caution: Watch your step when heading into the cave, since the stairs are steep and the rocks are slippery.
Animal Flower Cave is open all day every day, though guided tours are only available from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tour tickets, which include cave access, cost 20 Barbadian dollars ($10) per person. To save some money, skip the tour and view the cave's exterior from the free parking lot. The best way to reach the cave is by car, but limited bus service to and from Speightstown and Bridgetown is also offered. Attraction facilities include restrooms, a gift shop and a restaurant.
