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?

Very small cave that you can walk through in minimally supportive shoes. It's pretty, and I consider it to be a must-see.

This was a stop on our all day Jeep Tour. The entrance is small and steep to climb, but opens up quickly once inside. The walls are beautiful to see and the stalagtights are neat to see. You can easily walk around and go pretty...More

You can reach the caves by tour or in a rental car. It is definitely worth your time and the $11 entrance fee to the park to go check out this cave. Super cool!

Went to this cave around midday and no one was there. You'll have to go up some steep stairs and then walk about 100 ft till you get to the lit part. You'll notice a weird stench at the beginning which is the bat droppings...More

Pretty lame as caves go. Not very big, and most of the stalactites and stalagmites have been broken off. There are some interesting rock formations. It is okay as part of a tour, but I would not go out there on my own.

Part of Landover tour - cool place to visit! Had bats in the ceiling - but they only eat fruit or bugs. It's a must see as part of the island.

We were surprised how deep this cave was. The holes on the ceiling makes this cave special letting through the sunshine.

Hello! Not sure about motorcycle, we rented a car. Some of the roads are... dirt roads. But taxi should be able to take you there. :)

I had rented a 4x4 but saw many people arriving by car. you can get to the cave by car as long as you stay on the designated route, and drive with caution along the way.

Not walkable for elderly with canes or walkers. Rock stairs to climb up to the cave.
