Discover the sea from the cave's side. Beautiful view. Experience the fresh air and noise of the waves. Experience for yourself the "room with a view".

We are a bit confused about your review. Have you done a guided cave tour with us? Or did you visit Cape St. Blaize at The Point cave on your own? Thank you in advance.
