Amazing place, so impressive, I have no words to explain the joy for being there. All visit needs at least 2 hours using boat and walking.

great experience. cable car ride to get to the upper grotto. Great walk inside the Grotto - large and special. Lower Grotto offers a boat ride - which is special too.

Seeing a place like this in Lebanon is spectacular. The views from the surrounding areas are also picturesque. The only issue that I personally have is that there are no tour guides offered here....which may be an issue for obtaining information about the grotto.

You stay speechless in such a stunningly beautiful place. You could stay there for hours ignoring the world around you... don't forget a jacket, it's rather chilly in the caves.

Been to multiple Grottos that were bigger in the US, but nothing what we have seen in this Grotto. The view, the depth and the water tour is just amazing and make this place a definite to go to.Both caves offer different things with the higher cave providing the view and depth while the lower cave offering the boat tour....

If you go to this area, this is a must. It is breathtaking beautiful amazing surreal. Kids loved it. Boat ride is fun. No cameras allowed apparently yet people sneaked them in. Not much facilities around - toilets not up to much etc. didn't try cafe so can't comment. We decided to eat elsewhere.

Beautiful natural caves are a must-see if you visit Lebanon. They were so awesome. Probably took about 25-30 minutes to walk thru the first section. And then the second part is a small boat ride thru the caves and the crystal clear water. Only a 5 minute ride but very cool. I think it was only like $10-$12 per ticket...so... More

Though it isn't very big, the Grotto itself was beautiful. It is divided into the Upper and Lower Grotto. We took a short cable car ride to the upper grotto and then a train to the lower grotto where we took a boat ride! Both the upper and lower parts felt cool and really beautiful as it was lit up...
