  • The carved cave and wooden steps down to the sea level cave are fascinating. Hold onto the rail as things are damp and slippery. 145 steps down and 145 steps back up. The gift shop looks nice. I believe that the doors opened at 10 a.m. on the Sunday we visited.
  • Fun, quaint place in a busy beach area. There is not a lot to the cave but it's neat and not expensive. Not a must see but a fun stop if 10-30 minutes.
  • The store is the entrance to the cave which is one hundred something steps down (and back up). The steps are wet and slippery and it gets a bit cramped so I would not recommend the trip down for those that are claustrophobic. It's only $5 to go down so it's not going to break the bank and the history behind the cave is pretty cool. The shop itself sells a wide variety of things including jewelry, paintings and clothing from local vendors.
  • $5 well spent. Relaxing looking at the ocean from inside the cave. Small landing so don't go down with a large group
  • The main attraction is the amazing cave you can enter. It takes about 150 steps down and up, so if you are not in good shape or can't walk that, it's a pass. If you can walk that, it's definitely one of the coolest places in the area.
