  • Interesting these caves which are connected to the sea from locations accessible only to cave-divers. A visit from "Earth" takes a few minutes and the bats there are always but only during certain seasons (from what I understand, the summer). A small ticket to enter or, more easily stage of a tour.

  • I learned that there were native americans on the island before the arrival of Columbus et al. which was interesting.  more »
  • Expect more .... the water is transparent, small caves with stairs and easy access trails to visit. I did everything quickly and spent my time at Gold Rock Beach.
