At sundown thousands of bats swarm out of the Cave Lalay Caves just east of the main village area. It’s an eerie sight from the edge of the car park to watch what seems an endless stream of small bats swirling out of the dark caves and up into the evening sky. Just before the fish harbor you can find a turning on the left, a road that goes to Cave Lalay about 4 km away from this point. You can see the sign “Small Bat Cave” on the left near the bank. The sign is visible when coming into town.
