The unique rock formations at Cathedral Cave make it a favored spot for photo ops. Named so for its narrow, high-ceilinged entryway, the cave’s dark interiors are certainly intriguing – and off-limits. Perhaps what’s more interesting about this sight is what you don’t get to see – and the tour guides and boatmen sure have a lot of stories to tell about what lies further in the cave: accounts of bizarre creatures, rays, even sharks. Whether they are to be believed or not, Cathedral Cave is one of those mysterious sights that merits even just a quick stop.
This sandbar rising in the middle of Bacuit Bay’s bright blue waters seductively curves like a snake, earning it its rather intimidating name. But there are no snakes here – only stunning views, whether from the boat, on the sandbar itself, or from the small view deck about a hundred or so steps above the sandbar. The view from up there is arguably the best you’ll get when you’re island hopping – a full 360 degrees of Bacuit Bay, obviously including Snake Island which is, as it turns out, best viewed from the top.
