Who would have thought that these two caves, renowned in folklore as the site where two lovers burst through rock and into heaven, would be so dark, damp, gritty and full of bats?

We rented a jeep to enjoy the day at the park. Our first stop was to check out the caves. Cool experience. There are bats in the caves. They are flying around the entire time. Didn't bother us though. Some may be a little un...More

This cave is in the Arikok park. Easy to access, and possible to work around inside. Flashlight needed, but easy walk.

This cave is open to the public. They do ask that you not use flashlights because they disturb the bats. There are holes in the top of the cave that allow light to enter. Some portions are darker and could cause someone to trip, so...More

There are many things to see while you are on the island and most of the sights are free but you need good travel to access it.

The caves and the landscape is beautiful. This cave in particular is allows you to walk deep into it, and is scenic to take pictures. There are bats inside the caves, so be sure to be quiet and avoid flash photography.

This cave is inside Arikok National Park so there is an $11 fee to get into the park. Once inside everything is free. This is the bigger of the two caves. It's not huge but it is worth stopping in. We did see a few...More

These caves are beautiful you don't need a tour to get here and you don't need to pay to get in as well. It is a little bit dark when you get in and is hot and muggy as any cave but it's interesting from...More
