We drove up to Calypso Cave in the hope of learning a little of the history and going onto the viewing platform. In terms of the views, we were not disappointed - The view of Ramla Bay and the surrounding bay was spectacular, and made the trip there worth it! However, other than a little information on entry to the... More

Other than views of Ramla Bay, don't waste you time. The cave is closed as it is unsafe, so nothing but the view.

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
