Hinagdanan Cave

Hinagdanan Cave is located is Bingag, Dauis in Panglao Island, Bohol. The cave is lit by sunlight from a small hole in the ceiling.
 The cave is made of limestone that makes it slippery. The cave’s hole is about one (1) wide and there has a cemented step that will lead you inside the cave.

 The cave has a big lagoon inside that measures 12 feet during low tide and reaches 15 ft during high tide. It also consists of huge stalactites and stalagmites. 

 In the 16th century,  Bingag was discovered by thick vegetation. The people came to live and developed the land. One day, while the owner of this land was clearing the area for a farm, he discovered two (2) adjacent holes. Noticeable only when some decayed trunks were removed.  He tried to determine its depth by throwing stone and was surprised when he heard a splash of water.

Later on, the ladder was made for the people to get down the hole without any difficulty.  Ladder is “hagdan” in our language and the cave so on called Hinagdanan Cave. 

Entrance Fee is P25.00 with Volunteer Tour Guide included.
