“Well worth the entrance fee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Don't be surprised if the shop is not open at the exact instant they say they will be. Just enjoy the view and they'll be there in a few minutes.

“Unique attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

One of the unique parts of this cave is the access is through a rustic shop. Pay the admission and go down the 145 steps through a tunnel, which is quite scary/exciting. At the end you are right above sea level and looking through an opening in the shape of a man's head. Very unique indeed.
