It's basically a dark cave with not much to see, really. Except for a whole bunch of vendors ready to sell you junk.

Kind of touristy but interesting. It was neat to walk around in them. Fun to take a picture with the entrance and sea as a background.

It was fun to go into the cave, walk through the large passages and then take a picture with the sea in the background. When we caught the pictures back, the sky and the sea behind us looked like a picture shape of the continent of Africa. That was really cool!

Was afraid to go really b/c thought would be very touristy. Went early in the morning though so wasn't busy. The carved out Africa map is kind of cool to see and no one bothered us for photos or buying stuff.

Fasinating old cave, but the walls are lined with a market selling all sorts of things. You can be dressed up like a Berber and your photo taken with your own camera (for a fee). The food stalls outside smelled fantastic, but our tour guide would not let us stop there.
