 Description:   Batu Cermin Cave discovered in 1951 by the archaeologists as well as the Dutch pastor, Theodore Verhoven. Cave has an area over 19 hectares and 75 meters high. From research conducted Theodore Verhoven, Batu Cermin Cave is one of the cave under the sea which is then lifted to the surface. The sunlight that broke on the sidelines of the stone then reflected so give the impression of gloss on the stone (Mirror Cave). The reflection stone that later became the origin name of Batu Cermin Cave.
The stone in Batu Cermin Cave contains salt particles causing the stone sparkled when exposed to light. To watch the gleaming stone tourists need to go to a depth of 20 meters in a narrow area of the cave, 200 meters long. In the rainy season, visitors can also reflect in a puddle of water into the cave. This puddle was also glowing.
Batu Cermin Cave also has stalactites and stalagmites, which even takes the entrance of the cave. Therefore, in a tour is limited only 10 participants with the tour time of 30 minutes.
