More interesting than expected. We were lucky enough to visit the caves alone (late February). Audio guides in English available. Arrive 15 mins before group guided tour times on the website so you hopefully have a quieter visit. Not as dramatic/impressive as Cuevas de Nerja but definitely worth the 45mins that it takes to visit. Take a torch to shine... More

Had some spare time travelling back to the airport so called into the Cueva del Tesoro. Easy to find and affordable 3 adults and 2 small children less than €20. You have your own handheld remote that you carry around on your tour, as you reach parts of the caves you press a corresponding number on your device and it... More

Spent a relaxing hour walking around the caves and finding out about their formation and historical significance. Fantastic place to visit and ideal if you want to get away from the scorching sun and relax. Very quiet when we visited and made it easier to take your time and see everything.

Nice visit, a special cave, only three caves like this un the World. The sea formed typical galleries of underwater caves, with columns and gorges that are the basis of the Treasure Cove. Later, once the area landmass above the sea, fresh water leaks were forming stalactites and stalagmites, typical of caves from land and fresh water erosion. The cave... More

Oue english was not spoken hardly at all.but we didn't really mind as we had a... More

We visited this Cave and it was a fantastic stop. Kids loved the visit and enjoyed stories about treasures hidden in the caves and hidden messages with rock formation. Check schedule to be able to join a guided tour. Parking available for free in front of the cave with lots of shade. Elevator available. A perfect side trip for a... More

A mere 2 km from Rincon de la victoria, these caves are an interesting (and welcome break from the heat) outing . You can choose a guided tour or opt for an audio device in English as you explore the beautiful interior of these ancient caves. we took two kids of 5 yrs and 22 months and they both liked... More

This cave is conveniently located off the main freeway between Malaga and Almeria in Cala del Moral, which is part of Rincon de la Victoria. There is plenty of free covered parking and an archaeological park which doesn't seem to have any ruins but a lovely view of the sea and a charming and well presented assortment of the arid... More

Definitely worth a visit as one of only three marine caves in the world and you would have to go to China or Mexico to see the others. The guide was very informative and did the tour in Spanish and English.
