The cave is located in Brgy. Bonliw, less than 200 meters from the national road. A Community-Based Rural Tourism program maintains and handles the daily operatins of the cave. There are identified seven chambers in the cave. Remnants of human skeletal remains of pre-Hispanic Filipinos can be seen near the caves entrance. Immaculate flowstones abound the next chamber, while fruit bats thrive in the innermost chambers. This cave is ideal for beginners and old people. It is included in the upcoming 14th National Cave Congress.
Marinduque Wildlife Sanctuary covers almost 9,000 hectares of timberland in Central Marinduque. This forest zone is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, such as the endangered Rufous Hornbill (Rufous hydrocorax), the giant cloud rat (Phloeomys pallidus), and endemic species of butterflies, reptiles, insects, and birds. The western block is the Balagbag mountain range that rises up to 801 MASL, while the eastern block is Central Marinduque range with the highest elevation of 845 MASL. These areas are excellent mountaineering and trekking sites. All areas are accessible through interior barangay roads that go inside the timberlands.
Located in high in the mountains of Pulang Lupa, this park offers a sweeping panoramic view of the eastern seaboard of Marinduque. The bloody gun battle between the Filipino revolutionaries led by Col Maximo Abad and the American Volunteers led by Capt. Deveraux Shields resulted in one of the very few victories won by the Filipinos over the Americans. The Americans officially admitted their loss as recorded in the American War Archives. Today an obelisk, a NHI marker, and a concrete retablo marks the place.
