Legend

We came here because of the history and legend surrounding this cave. It is nice but not as beautiful as we imagined.

On our way back from Cap Spartel, we visited Hercules Cave. As I am claustrophobic I was a little uneasy about this adventure. IT WAS FANTASTCI. It was discovered 4000BC and is in wonderful condition. You can see where the people excavated the stones for their use way back in time. The cave has a peacefulness about it, only punctuated...

The family and I had a great day out, the cave was excellent. Not a lot to see and do apart from the cave. There is also coffee shops and restaurants.

Don't pay more than 10 DH to get there by shared taxi. Free of charge to visit the cave. A man charged 5 DH to let you in a cave with monkeys and weird man made stuffs. Worth the trip only if you wanted to see the coast or airport.

The stories behind the place are better than the place itself. A tourist stop on the waters edge. Caves with vistas to the ocean and a story of Hercules and mythology that have made it a stop forever. See it so you can say you did it but 1/2 hour is all you should give it.

We visited the cave in mid-late afternoon on a day that was rainy one second and sunny the next. When we got to the Cave, the sun was shining and inside the Cave is an opening through which the sun is so bright, it is literally blinding. ( I couldn't see for a few minutes afterward). The Cave itself is... More
