Explore the Caves

One thing that few people know about Anguilla is that it is honeycombed with caves. The torrid Cavannagh Cave with the petrified remains of a giant 3400-pound rodent and a chute that drops 60 feet before hitting the water and the large, cool interior of the Katouche Cave with a tree growing out of an opening in the roof and the twittering of bats filling the air with their high-pitched squeaks are in the Katouche Valley.

The Fountain Cavern close to Shoal Bay is an ancient ceremonial site with a magnificent stone carving and is graced with two subterranean freshwater pools surrounded by Amerindian drawings. All of the caves have metal grids over the entrance to protect them and require a guide. Oliver Hodge is a very well-respected and knowledgeable guide on the island and can be contacted through Katouche Tours.
