Bat Cave Boracay is located in the western part of the island in Malay, Aklan. The cave is a unique tourist spot in Boracay.
Tourists need to go one hike through the forest to reach the mouth of the cave which is home to small cave bats and giant fruit bats that roam around the area after sunset. This place is quite a popular site for naturalists, photographers and adventure seekers.
