  • There are few such caves as Barbados’ Animal Flower Cave. Formed at sea level and currently located at a height of about 1.8 metres due to the constant rise of Barbados (around 2.5 centimetres per 1,000 years), it is one of the most striking natural landmarks of the island. With an inner environment lined with sea anemones (called animal flowers by the locals – hence the name), its older floors are considered to be around 400,000-500,000 years old. Swimming in the inner rock pools is possible on clearer days and basking in the outstanding brilliance of the Atlantic panoramas is what most people would recommend. Discovered by two English explorers in 1780, the Animal Flower Cave can be accessed via coral steps constructed around 1912. For more interesting information, we recommend that you research sea anemones and their behaviour.
