:: Tiyaba Cave or Cavern
Usually a middle class pleasure traveler after a hectic time in the workplace is confronted with such questions as "where will I go this summer"? , "to my favorite haunts"? , keep in mind Bantayan Island.
TIYABA CAVE OR CAVERN - Familiarly known as "langob", it is located near the central part of Bantayan Island in Barangay Atop-Atop. Its entrance is step down under the earth. It is not only a bat cave but also a source of water in the neighborhood. Underneath is a running stream water, clear and placid, where people fetch water to drink or wash their clothes. The water itself is far from pollution as it runs eastward where the bat chamber is located. Small chambers of different forms are found inside this cave. It is hard to imagine just how this cave was formed, but most likely it was formed by the steady pounding of waves on the rocky cliffs along the shore. During the war years (World War II) it was the favorite hangout of the "voluntario". Just about two decades ago, human skulls and rotten pieces of coffins were still found on its walls.
