  • Amazing place. The cave is relatively small and only accessible when the tide is right. Nonetheless it is remarkable and the surrounding beach is really nice too. The views are amazing.
  • Well worth the trek down and is free. Enjoyed this way more than the castle. Make sure you go low tide.
  • Crucial to visit when tide is out - amazing place and fascinating to look for the old mine entrances nearby.
  • Fun place to visit at low tide only
  • "IN A LAND OF MYTH AND A TIME OF MAGIC" I want to go as soon as possible!
