In the Elephant Tusk chamber, admire the impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations. Attend a concert in the 600-seat natural amphitheater of the Cascade room.

  • Do you head to Nerja, don't miss this powerful experience. An amazing cave, which may fantaxin to flow. What we have not discovered yet? How Neanderthals lived and stone age people down here ... Interaktv guided tour through the earpiece and a small picture viewer. Beautiful park at the entrance. Restaurant and souvenir shop

  • A must if you're in Nerja. You can be with a little train, bus, taxi or car. 4 km from the city centre and walk back is fun. The caves are beautiful and the explanation clear.

  • The Caves are among the best natural attractions on the Costa del Sol. The sheets size of the cave is hard to comprehend as it runs for kilometers and over one hundred meters high in places. Unfortuna...  more »

  • Brilliant cave system. Much better than chedder gorge or wooky hole in the uk.
  • Pretty big cave, but not that spectacular. I've seen better ones. Nevertheless, it's a must see once. The duration of the visit is around 15-20 minutes, and it costs 10€ if I remember correctly. Free parking.
  • Long queue to get the tickets during the high season, it is recommended to book online in advance. The visit is interesting but not much of the cave is actually accessible to the public. It is also quite impossible to see the famous prehistoric paintings.
  • Have been to a few caves this was certainly wasn't "up there". Cheap so ok to visit if passing but certainly no day trip. Got the tickets, I was aware there was a pre audio then a tour but no instruction as to when or where, went in thought there might be a meet place inside where your are stopped and they give the speech...nothing. Quick to walk around, the lighting was nothing special could have put some colour in there in some places always looks good. Can change the mood. Overall not very impressed
  • A very disappointing visit. We were not told that there were guided visits with an audio guide in English. We could find no information either telling us this. I would have expected to be offered this is aat the ticket office but no they just took our 20 euros. I was also refused a complaints form which I understand is required by law to be available in Spain. There is no information once you are in the caves in any language! Just pay your money and put up with it!
