Located in the northern part of the island of Panglao in the province of Bohol, Hinagdanan Cave is one of the usual pit stops for a planned trip going to the white-sand beaches of Alona or Dumaluan. It is also part of most tour packages.
Situated near the coastal road in Bingag, Dauis, Hinagdanan Cave is a home to many stalactites and stalagmites; or limestones found usually in caves.
Outside the Hinagdanan Cave are several souvenir shops and stalls. The entrance to the cave and stairs were developed to help tourists descend to the cave. Inside the cave is a pool of water where locals and tourist are encouraged to swim so they can experience (or taste) the fresh water even with the proximity of the cave to the sea. Because of the creepy nature of the cave some opt to stay out of the water and just take a couple of pictures before going up. Bats and other animals – possibly snakes – live in this place so everyone is notified not to scream and horseplay. Nevertheless, ever since the cave was discovered nothing was ever reported about a person bitten by a bat or snake; probably the only known accidents were due to the slippery surface and boisterous playing.
Note that foods, drinks, soap and smoking inside the Hinagdanan Cave are strictly prohibited.
