When you walk into the upper cavern it takes your breath away. It reminded me of a huge cathederal as it opens out in front of you. There are pathways throughout that take you deeper and deeper into the cave and more spectacular . My Mum came with us and she is in a wheelchair, there are quite a number... More

Cave has two part. One is upper grotto and other lower grotto. Upper grotto is seen by walking and lower is seen by boat. Two of them are amazing.

Unexpectedly beautiful caves which get better and better the further in you go. Look out for glimpses of the turquoise clear water deep below. You can also take a shorty boat ride in the lower grotto. Definitely recommended.

Went with a group of people for an afternoon out and was not expecting much, but the cave was magnificent. You start at the top and theres a lot of walking up steps and its quite dark inlaces but the scenes are beautiful. You then take the bus/train down to the lower level and are then given a short boat... More

I can understand that dozens of folks trying to photograph the Grotto would be distracting, but I still wish I could have used my camera to capture the awesome beauty of the place. True, as caverns go, this one is relatively monochromatic, but the shapes and structures here are wonderful. The Jeita Grotto was a highlight of our short stay... More

Was not expecting to see such an enormous grotto, on both an upper area and lower area, accessible on a short boat ride. Tastefully lit, it's awe-inspiring. Ticket includes cable car and all required fees.
