This is a very good dive site with a chance to surface during the dive and enter a cave full of bats. This is another unusual dive site in the Boracay area and definitely worth a visit. The site is made up of the main cave, Bat Cave, but it also has many other smaller caves. The main Bat Cave is accessible by land but can be reached by divers only when the conditions are good. Thorough planning is needed to complete this dive as sometimes the currents and large waves can take divers out to sea or get them too close to the rocks at the entrance of the caves. High tide normally brings with it the flat water necessary to enter the dive site. These conditions make it necessary for divers to be experienced to participate in this dive.

The dive site is not very deep and only gets to about 3 meters giving divers the chance to explore the many different tunnels and caves. Each cave often leads off to new caverns and tunnels and so there is a lot of area to explore. Divers can spot many small reef fish, ghost pipefish, moray eels, shrimps, crabs, and lobsters. Occasionally divers can see larger pelagic fish including manta rays, reef sharks, and even sometimes hammerhead sharks.

In the main Bat Cave, divers can surface, and will be surrounded by hundreds of bats that are hanging from the ceiling within the stalactites. Above the sea, divers can also spot resting sea snakes that are taking refuge in the damp areas of the caves. All of these combined make the dive site a great place for dive photography as divers can get interesting shots that include the crustaceans under water and the flying mammals above.
