Cathedral Caves, El Nido

3.5
#8 of 18 in Nature in El Nido
Take a boat ride to explore Cathedral Caves. You can choose to stay on the boat and simply enjoy the view, or, if you're experienced and the tides are right, jump in the water and dive inside the cave. See the inside created naturally from the lava flow, with the entrance so magnificent that it resembles the architecture of a cathedral. Inside you'll find thousands of spiky stalactites hanging from the roof. To find out how to plan a trip to El Nido, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • We didn't get to enter the cave as it wasn't part of our tour, so we only had a chance to admire the cave from the outside. The size of the entrance was large enough for smaller boats to enter and admire the view from the inside.
  • Beautiful but we can't go inside so it's not the best cave for explorers like us.
