This beautiful underground cave is perfect for explorers who like a mildly challenging trek. Here in this dark underworld, you can witness stunning Cave formations, and refreshing pools of water.

This beautiful sea cave is located under the cliffs at North Point, St. Lucy. The cave’s coral floor is estimated to be 400000 to 500000 years old and the ‘younger’ coral section above the floor is about 126000 years old. But this is not the main feature of this cave. Animal Flower Cave is home to sea anemones, or ‘animal flowers’.
The flower consists of tentacles that can sting and paralyze a passing fish in the larger variety of species. The tentacles retract into the stalk or stump for safety on contact with an alien object like a stick. The flower then waits a while before coming out of the stalk again to allow danger to pass.
