Easy dirt road to reach the caves. Huge parking spot. $10 fee per adult. Bring good hiking/walking shoes, it can be slippery and the walking sticks they lend are useful. There is a loop that will bring you to the caves. They are numerous, grab a flashlight if you want to explore. I would recommend wearing a hard hat. Having... More

That was some amazing natural landscape we got to hike on! Well preserved rustic nature. We need more tourist operators like this attraction. Total respect for the nature.

We were hiking with six adults and eight children between the ages of 18 months and 11 years old, and although some parts were a little more technical we did the trek in about 1hour 39 minutes. We stopped and explored every cave, and all enjoyed bouldering and exploring. I would recommend a hiking carrier for young children. The scenery... More

$10 for adults, cash only. I think its $5 for a child. We came here on a Sunday right before 10am and we were the only ones there! They provide you with a flashlight if you want one :) I thought the walking sticks weren't helpful. We had to put it down many times when exploring the caves. The trails... More

Finding it can be a little tricky as it's off the beaten path, however it is absolutely worth seeing. I loved hiking through and exploring Grieg's caves and would definitely return. There are about half a dozen huge caverns plus tons of smaller nooks and crannies. You can borrow a flashlight from the owners if you want to check out... More

I was here just yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the hike! I took a flashlight with me but realized I was not quite brave enough to venture deep into the caves. This was a fantastic, fun and different way to spend 2.5 hours exploring a small part of the Peninsula. The first part of the hike is nice but somewhat boring... More

Fun and slightly challenging hike (at times). Lots of places to explore and crawl around in. An assortment of large and small caves to venture in! Some involved crawling others involved extensive climbing. Beautiful hike with a lookout point at the end when you finish getting through the caves. Would not recommend doing in flip flops or sandals. Bring your... More

Had a wonderful time exploring Greig's caves! Challenging hike up and down steep hills and mossy covered rocks. Not for small kids or anyone with mobility issues! You'll need good pair of shoes for sure. Out of the way spot with port a pottys. Cash only $10 per person.
