I thunk I saw it.

It's on the other side of the bay and not where the road directions would have you believe. Still a nice view though over the beach, in the distance.... if you squint.

The cave is now closed for safety reasons, due to looking as though it's about to collapse. The view over Ramla bay from here is good - but it's not worth the drive here if you're expecting to visit the cave.

The view over Ramla Bay is spectacular. It is a shame that having visited before, entrance to the Cave itself has been stopped, but understandably for safety reasons

I don't know if I should review the panoramic view or the actual cave. Saying "cave", but not really mean it... It's a wooden platform looking over Ramla bay. Nice view - no cave. I have heard that you used to be able to go into the cave, but fear of collapsing making that too dangerous. Leaving us with no... More

our hop on hop off bus took us to view Calypso Cave from above for 15 minutes as the roads had blocked off the area so we could not go to actually see it close up. From the view point they took us, it was really lovely and we got some great pictures too.

Title says it all. You can look over a railing to see some rocks in a hole. That's it really. View is pleasant as are many others from elevated positions on the island.

No value to travel to specifically If you don't know the myth or care about it specifically then it's pretty much a view only. It's also a cave via a slender opening which is now closed for access as it was clearly dangerous getting up and down in the past About only add is clean toilets which was good

Was looking forward to the caves but unfortunately you can go in them and you basically look down a hole into a few concrete steps which is all fenced off! Such a shame you can longer get into the caves, view was ok but seen better on the island and in Malta, please make it safe to go back into... More

Situated in Xaghra just above Ramla Hamra, this place has a stunning view. Although the cave itself is not open for anyone as it is dangerous the view and surroundings are worth a visit.
