Seeing this famous photogenic coastal spot complete with granite boulders and tropical waters was worth the 15 min taxi. There were restrooms at the park and a restaurant and shops nearby. Well worth the visit.

We had a great time walking/wading/hiking through the rocks. It was more than I could have imagined. The surf was incredibly high and rough while we were there, so I didn't do any swimming, but the waves did make for some incredible sights.

Such a fun and amazing place to visit. One comment, our captain dropped us off from the dinghy as close as possible; however it's still quite a swim in to the shore where you begin your Baths excursion. Keep that in mind as you plan.

The large rocks on the beach were larger than I imagined. The caves are amazing. This is also a great beach for snorkeling. There is a bathroom and beach bar/sandwich shop on the beach. There is also a restaurant at the top of the baths with a gift ship. We spent a great day at the baths.

We thoroughly enjoyed The Caves, but the surf at the beach was pretty rough this time - snorkeling was difficult and the visibility wasn't great, but I think it was the time of year. Our last trip was vastly different and we had a wonderful experience!

We were on a guided tour, which I highly recommend. I was there once before, and just wandered around, but this time we got some info too! There are some tight spots at the beginning of the trail, so if you're a bigger person (over 250lbs) you might not want to attempt the whole trail. The beach is magnificent, and... More
