One of the most amazing things you can ever see the views the climate and the boat trip inside the grotto is simply amazing. Make sure you dip your hand to feel how cold the water is!

lower grotto feels like it`s a part of "the beach" movie for leonardo decaprio.period the upper one is something that you have not seen before, unbelievable mother of nature art ad that to the view outside and you get a "must visit" Lebanon attraction

The Grotto is a charming place. The fees are inexpensive and the scenery inside is worth every penny. Cameras aren't allowed inside the Grotto.

After teleferique, allow close to an hour for the upper walking cavern. the lower cavern boat ride lasts about 30 minutes. There is a little train and a few animals for children, and some (fake?) statues. The cost is higher than for government-run archeological sites.

What is surprising is that the Grotto Jeita is splitted into two a bigger one where you will be walking, climbing stairs, discovering new edges... and a smaller where you will be taken by boat. It was a wonderful day, between 35 and 45 min...More

Amazing grotto, although disappointing that you're not allowed to take photos. We went in September - when it is hot! - and it was empty of tourists.

Really amazing. I couldn't believe how wonderful is it and how the time worked in this cave. On the boat ride, we were told that the water depth could go from 1 to 7 meters. If you go to Lebanon you can't miss it.
