I was really looking forward to visiting the cave after reading about it on the internet. Without a guide to show us the cave, we wouldn't have realised you can walk quite deeply into the back of the cave where it opens out through a...More

We arrived at the Grotte whilst we were on a 3 hour Island tour and the Grotte was quite a surprise. The most surprising part is the walk into the area through the rainforest is the many plants stood out...ie large heliconias and gingers. The...More

Ambling through this amazing path enjoying the magnificent flora when all of a sudden. there it is in front of you...Hard to comprehend how you walk along a meandering path and suddenly confronted by this most amazing enormous cavern. Well worth the visit.

Fabulous sight to visit. Largest caves we have seen to date with fascinating, beautiful natural formations. A short walk into the caves is through a beautiful rain forest. There is a small entry fee which is well worth paying. A must to visit

So its a big cave and pretty rainforest at front. Good enough for a quick pit stop if you are scootering around the island for 5 minutes.
