  • A wonder of nature all by itself, Hinangdanan Cave in Panglao, Bohol is more than your average underground cave.

    HINAGDANAN CAVE. A wonder of nature in Panglao Island.

    It’s a naturally-lit cavern littered with stalactites and stalagmites. Getting to the cave is easy enough, as it’s only 20 minutes from Panglao’s famous Alona beach. You’ll need to pay an entrance fee of P50 per person. The environmental fee is not a big deal, however, as it already gives you access to the cave with a guide for you or your group.

    CAVE ENTRANCE

    SHORT STAIRCASE. Be careful when you walk down the stairs. It’s wet.

    One of the cave’s main attractions is its cold yet refreshing pool. For only P75 per person, you can take a dip in the “healing pool” because of the supposed healing properties it possesses. Don’t be scared that the water is green; it’s just the green limestone bottom showing through the crystal-clear water of the cave.

    THE POOL. It’s crystal clear and reflects the limestone formations within the cave.

    SUNROOF. Not exactly what you’d find in a car, but it’s great for photo ops.

    Another highlight is the natural light peering through holes in the roof of the cave. It may sound unsafe, but these actually give photographers a chance to take photos without having deliberate lighting set-ups. There is artificial light in the cave, but that’s only to guide people through the dark entrance.

    There are also paintings towards the right side of the staircase leading to the cave. It depicts a snake with “Shiva”, according to our guide. By the way, he’s a really good photographer so ask him to take your photos inside the cave.
