The Bat Cave - Caution should be taken by those visiting and entering the cave.

The cave is located on the western-end of the island. It houses many small insectivorous bats and locals will be more than happy to accompany you there for a fee, or "tip". The guide will you to a short hike through a forest to the mouth of a cave, which drops down at a very steep angle.

The mouth of the cave is littered with large boulders, and is extremely difficult to enter and walk down. There are no visible path, no handrail, and the stones are extremely slippery with slime and bat guano, as well as extremely dangerous. The air inside the cave is also very warm and humid, and in addition to the amount of guano, is very difficult to breathe. Several snakes live inside the cave.

The ceiling of the cave is interesting, however, with multiple, small stalactites. Nearby, you can find another cave, called "crystal" cave which has a lot of stalactites and a hole on the opposite site of the entrance, from which you can watch out to the sea if you dare to climb up to it.
