The place is not exactly a cave but a carving with the tigers face..better to visit when it's not too hot.

A pretty decent beach, clean and silent. Not sure we can play in the water as the slope to the water seems steep

The Tiger Cave entrance is fully carved with the face of tiger - just like tiger itself welcoming us. Nothing much to see as only few tourist visit here. One can skip this place.

The Tiger caves are on the way towards Mahabalipuram from Chennai and its worth checking them out. Located along a beautiful and clean beach, the caves are well designed and display some intricate carvings.

Carved out of rock, this cave is a must see. It's more of a carving, not really a cave. There's a very big rock nearby as well. And then it's close to the beach also.
