I visited here with my husband and two children in July although the caves were closed it is worth going just for the view which is beautiful and fabulous.

Might be worth visiting out of interest due to the legend, but not otherwise. Cave has collapsed and you can get the same or better views elsewhere.

There was nothing to line as the cave had collapsed done time ago. I hope the nymph did not get squashed.

The cave is closed as deemed to be unsafe. However, there are excellent views of Ramla Bay from the cave area and for me made the visit worth making.

Beautiful views.......that's about it! And the cave isn't about the views it is about going into the cave, which you can't do! We felt this was a wasted journey...don't bother, head straight to Ramala Bay which you can see from the cave area, which is a journey worth making.

We spent quite a lot of time to get here and visit Calypso's cave, and were disappointed to find that it is actually not possible to enter! There is a shabby sign that says the roof is in danger of collapsing, and visitors are not permitted. If possible, find out if it is open ahead of time. The tourist information... More

We took romantic pictures of Ramla Bay and Ramla beach from the cave area. The cave is one of the few caves claiming to be Calypso's headquarters. You can walk through and crawl through the rather small area ( it is fun to explore it) and admire the nice views from outside it. And it is nice to be able... More

There is not much of a cave to see, but the view is breathtaking and spectacular. From this spot you can get the best view of ramla l- hamra beach and surrounding country side with a clear view of far out at sea on a clear day. This is one of the spots that makes you appreciate what a gem... More

The cave itself has collapsed so you cannot enter it at the moment. The views outside, over Ramla Bay, are gorgeous - worth a look if you have a car, but it my opinion, not worth a hike up the hill by foot.

Ramla beach is beautiful. To really appreciate it you need to climb up to the lookout point by Calypso's cave. The cave itstelf is a non issue. It is small, closed of and irrelevant considering the view offered by the platform. To ge there you must climb. Luckily it is a paved road that leads up to the top. It... More
