I had a tough time finding it the first time we tried. I followed the dirt road and it ended far downhill in a field. Turns out that it is much closer to the road and nowhere near the dirt track I took. There is a strange sign near the cave entrance that reads "Try Me" in white paint. The turnoff from the highway is clearly marked. We were well prepared with flashlights, long pants and good shoes. Also brought pink sting which we left in the cave. The easy main part is about 900 feet long. It consists of three adjoined chambers and several offshoots. After that you have to go down a ladder to a lower chamber filled with water. This is where we ended our hike and ascended through the square shaft nearby, complete with rope ladder. The easiest way back to the entrance is through the cave itself. We went outside and took a round about path through the fields to get back to the car.

Interesting caves complete with bats and graffiti dating back to the late 1800s. Bring flashlights and step carefully!

Great caving site. Cave was longer than I expected, a flashlight is a must for all members of the group.

Hatchet Bay Cave was a recommended visit by a local we met on the plane over. As previous reviews stated Turn AT the Sign. The road in was bumpy/rocky with the vegitation at roof top. Just a short drive in and there was a clearing with a weathered sign sticking out of the tall grass. Not the pristine rock fence entrance as seen on previous postings. But a quick look confirmed we were there. We have done wild caves in the past so this visit was relaxing as we looked at the numerous names on the walls. Our flashlights were not large but adequate for the experience. We only went about halfway as we tended to look around the corners to photograph formations that were undisturbed. "Follow the String" was the advice we had received, which we did to prevent loosing our way in the labyrinth. With the extensive topside growth, I would recommend a guide if you plan on walking through to the back exit ladder. We were greeted with refreshing rain as we returned to our car.
