Acaban Cave (Lover’s Cave). The Biliran island province boasts a number of sea caves but perhaps the most famous one is located in the Brgy. Acaban, Culaba. The Acaban Cave or better known as Lover’s Cave, open to crystal blue waters where you can take a leisurely swim without getting smashed on a big waves on a good day.
The Lover’s cave is surrounded with mystery. Legend has it that the cave is a result of the dynamites that were once blasted by the treasure hunter believing, there were chests of gold in the area. Yet it is not confirmed if there were indeed precious things.
One claim to fame is a stream of spring water that trickled down the cave that is said to have healing properties. Although an unsubstantiated claim, a number of people bring a bottle of water as souvenir.
It was also said that the name of the Lover’s cave was inspired by a story where young lovers went for a bit of romance but got swept by the sea. Others say it got that name because of its many hiding spots where lovers can enjoy privacy.
The surrounding land of the sea cave is owned by the Bernabe clan, now solely by one branch of the family. There were plans to make it a world-class resort but with the death of the owner, all plans came to standstill.
Accessibility is one of its major factors to its growing attraction. The pathway going to the cave is located along the national road. A short walk downhill and you will be greeted with the blue expanse of the sea.
Acaban Cave makes an amazing viewing area for the sky, the birds, the sea and the sunset. You can even see a school of fishes that’s how clear the waters are. However be mindful of the waters as its quite deep and there are lots of jagged rocks around.
