On the day we arrived it was late afternoon and the sea was choppy, so they recommended to wait till the next morning. Next morning we showed up. The sea was still a bit choppy, so the guy in the tickets booth said we'd... More

Was a bit disappointing that we couldn't enter the main cave but looking at the sea going up and down inside the cave it was better to be safe than sorry. Definitely recommend it but check the weather forecast and if in... More
