  • The cave suddenly appear along the way! Inside is dark and mysterious. Kanae Anna stone is a mark. So there is space to stop the car to stop by in the middle of the drive is good.

  • Not easy to find , even when its right on the roadside, as there is a barrier placed along the front of cave and no actual sign pointing to it, the clue is the carpark area opposite, and coming back t...  more »
  • I took the family for a drive up the westside. I highly recommend doubling or tripling up attractions and don't just go for the cave. we ended up doing the mermaid cave, kansans cave, and then stopped...  more »

  • Nice stop if you’re going out there anyway. Lots of gorgeous beaches to stop at along the way. Road ends a couple miles past the cave. Go late morning to avoid local bedroom traffic in afternoon. Short visit not to deep or steep.
  • Heard stories about this cave and things it’s been used for throughout history. Sad to see there was no sign at the cave to tell it’s story and confirm if any of the rumours are true. The cave is not very big and you could easily drive right past it if you weren’t looking for it. The parking area is a bit sketchy. Definitely don’t leave any valuables in your car. There is broken glass all over the place so cars are obviously getting broken into.
  • Very cool place. I'd never been in a cave before because of claustrophobia but I felt fine in there.
  • A great hike. Be sure to go halfway up the take the trail to the right. Be very careful parking here, our rental car was broken in to and everything was stolen. Don't leave anything in your car. Roll down your windows and leave them down, that way your window is not smashed. This area is hit very often. The officer who took our report told us we we're the third break in that day in that parking lot.
  • Nice short walk that turns into a climb up some rocky areas on the side of the mountain. Took me about a half hour to get up only because I'm out of shape. Views were gorgeous. The cave doesn't go in much, you have to sit far back to the left side to catch the cave mouth in the frame of your picture. Parking is free and on the side of the road in front of the lower makua cave.
