“Worth to See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

Jeitta Grotto was a fascinating place, it is at the top of must see places at Beirut. There are two caves to see there. One is really big, the other is smaller but has a lake and you are touring with a boat. It is prohibited to take photos inside. There are asking to put your photo machine and cellulars to a locker at the entrance.

“A cave of wonders”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

The atmosphere of this place is like no other. The sound of water dropping and the size of the stalagmites and stalactites will leave your jaw dropping. Totally recommend the boat tour as well.

“Could be a wonder of the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

Beauty to describe this place is an understatement, its just a wonder of the world. You walk in this amazing upper grotto, that is a nature's wonder. Then take a little train to the lower grotto that is even more magnificent, take a boat ride inside the caves that has these cool waters. No cameras are allowed, but I understood why after getting in, there would be far too many accidents of curious people looking for good photo sites.

“One of the nature wanders”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2014

This place is a must see when visiting Lebanon, the amazing veiw of the water and the rocks is breathtaking, you can't take photographs but the scene will be craved in your memory for ever. The caves, the sound of water drops, the shear size of the stalagmites and stalactitis is unbelievable. The experience you gain from visiting this unique Grotto is overwhelming, you will come out speechless thanking our mother nature and God for his creations.
