  • Amazing ocean views and crazy caves to climb around. But please watch your step there are legit craters you can fall into. I did not attempt to climb into the cave although I saw many people coming out. Not a fan of close quarters. The view from atop is amazing. Way high up. Some of the holes in the rocks are super big and could be dangerous. Pay attention up there.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Need to be careful walking around the area (kids can go but I do not recommend the little ones, if you take them keep an eye on them!!! There’s a few holes where they can fall 10 to 15 feet high. To get to the natural pool inside the cave you need to climb down rocks which is challenging. It cost $10.00 per person Breathe taking arch as well. Everything was worth! Second time visiting and will be back.
