The surrounding areas around the cave were under construction however we tipped one of the construction workers and they let us in, it was worth it!

During our stay, we found a cabbie who we hired for the day to show us the city. During the tour we stopped at Hercules Cave. The first order of business was a camel ride... More

This was a fairly quick visit on our tour, but not a stop to miss. The caves were enjoyable, but the view pictured here was incredible to see.

The place was closed when we got there but the driver managed to get us in :D It's very nice and beautiful, still under constructions and upgrading. I was lucky to get inside and check this beautiful place.

The cave of Hercules is being restored to give it the appearance that complements the reception of cosmopolitan visitors. This natural place is full of imagination that fully overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. interesting./.

It seems that the place is been in the way of a huge construction, so nobody can enter the cave. It's a shame because it looks to be amazing. Felt really disappointed.

greetings! I was on a organized tour, visiting Cape Spartel and other places. Unfortunately the Hercules cave is/was closed for renovation, we/I could not enter. This was January 13, 2015. According to our guide it would take quite some time to re-open?! Now I see reviews of a later date, so can only advise to check before hand!
