If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches.

  • It was cool to take the 145 steps to sea level. The expereince was worth it cause I got a coupon from my kayak experience since the water levels were too high to kayak into one of the caves. Not sure ...  more »
  • Something a little different and out of the ordinary for just a few bucks :) careful though...if you are out of shape the 145 stairs back up can be tough!  more »
  • $5-$8 to walk down 150 or so steps...was it worth it--probably not, but we did it and were glad we did....but they should restrict the number of people that can go down at a time as it can get cramped...  more »

  • Store is great for chicks and knick-knack collectors or a quick souvenir. The stairs down to the came are pretty neat and the view from the cave is cool. I'd recommend going early in the AM for the best pictures or you'll get washed out pictures closer to sunset.
  • I walked past this store many times and not notice that there is an entrance to a cave where you can enjoy beautiful views of the ocean. There are about 150 steps going down the lighted tunnel to access the cave. Costs 5.00 for adults and 3.00 for kids. Worth the price. Just watch out your return coming back up ! It is hard ! Recommended
  • It was $5 to walk down the stair to the very small landing for Sunny Jim Cavern. Still was nice and cool view from down there. Lots of people coming around in kayaks and whatnot so tough to get a clear and clean pic. Narrow passage to the cave. The shop is good for trinkets and refreshments.
  • The cave stairs were well kept along with the hand rails.The height clearance near the end of the stairs is low; so people that are taller or as tall as 6' 0" will have a bit of trouble near the end of the stairs. The dock at The bottom of the stairs is small and can get easily crowded if a large group comes into the cave. The store itself has a wide range of souvenirs.
  • Great attraction! Best stop for gifts and knic knacks. My girlfriend found these gorgeous silver turtle earrings in their jewelry store. She loved how well curated the selections were
