Labuan Bajo’s Mirror Cave
Located only 4km away from Labuan Bajo, Batu Cermin Cave is a great option for a morning or afternoon trip. The cave, which means “Mirror Cave” when translated, got its name from the cave’s walls, which reflects the morning sunlight in a spectacular display thanks to its mirror-like rock surface. To experience this glorious visual display in its entirety, you should visit the cave around 9am or 10am in the morning.
If you’re not a morning person, don’t worry – Batu Cermin Cave is a great option for any time of the day. The cave itself is located in a beautiful natural location, surrounded by forests, birds and wildlife including long-tailed macaques. From the mouth of the cave, you could enjoy panoramic views of the mainland and islands nearby.
Inside the cave, you’ll have to pass a series of pre-chambers before you enter the actual “Mirror Cave” where you’ll find a colony of bats going about their day-to-day.
– Use local transport from Labuan Bajo to get to Batu Cermin
