Timubo Cave is located at Baranggay Sonog, San Francisco, Camotes Island. It is one of the first caves that became a tourist spot in Camotes, Islands. Currently, it is a popular cave in Camotes among locals and tourists.
It has 5 ft high mouth of the cave going towards the body of fresh water. A guide will walk you through the cave for a minimal fee. He will take you to go towards the waters at the end of the cave. The adventure starts here. You can go down the stairs towards a small stream. The cave is as deep that it’s not good for the old folks to come here because of the pressure and it’s slippery. When you pass thru the cave, there are attached lights and cables so you will be able to pass through on the way to the end of the cave. There may be bats hanging around in the dark, so be careful.
Above is the inside of the cave going towards the end and mouth of the cave. Be careful when you walk down because it is slippery. Best thing is to bring a flash light with you in case of emergency, so you have light.
This is the end of the cave where you can find a body of fresh water. It is cool and clean since the water will wash away towards the sea nearby. You may discover some spacious rooms inside the cave. The aquamarine water takes 6ft high if it is high tide, and 4 ft high if low tide. The fresh water is safe for tourists and locals.
Bring you underwater camera or wrap you cellphone with plastic so it won’t get wet to avoid the drips of water from the top of the cave.
