  • The caves are really outstanding. The ticket price is quite justified, could be a little cheaper, but it is worth the expense. A bit too "fast" as the visit in the sense that you would not stop to admire too long because otherwise it would stop the queue of people walking on the long catwalk that runs through the cave. Also they couldn't take pictures because the municipality has bought himself a natural beauty.

  • The path is very easily on a bridge in the sea level. Exceptionally the visit could be in french. Professional Guide. Beautiful specimen of stalactites of colours white (pure) Brown or red (ferrous). And the magic of nature gets under way. Imagine pipes of organs a Gargoyle, cabbage flowers... It does not of course because the stalactites are still in training flats: banned films (in Slovenia we could shoot so without flash). It is accessed by boat (to pay). Few visiting hours (2 per day in October). Credit cards are not accepted (9 euros)

  • We regret, however, did not have an explanation in French... High price € 21 per adult for a visit of less than an hour.

  • Think it was about 25 min each way from the roadside parking and was a nice walk. Beautiful nature and great to see stalactites and stalagmites and other natural rock formations. The path there could have been marked more clearly but we got it right first try. Would recommend to bring some water along as walking steep inclines in heat is good exercise.
  • Amazingly beautiful. If you are in the area it's something you shouldn't miss. And please, respect the rules and do not take picture inside but enjoy it fully with your eyes.
  • The best of the caverns we visited. Well organized and well preserved unlike some of the other sites that look trampled by too many visitors.
  • Nice to visit both from the sea and by tracking. Simply beautiful.
  • Wonderful place to visit fancy visiting UK please got to Netherleigh.co.uk
