This place is simply beautiful, there aren't any words to describe it, you have to see the beauty for yourself...only downside is that it's over far too quickly

Pictures do not do this cave justice!!! It is absolutely breathtaking! The lines can be long to enter the cave (especially during the summer months), but it is 100% worth the wait, the heat and the sweat! Once you walk down into the cave, you...More

My first observation was that the line moved quickly and that we were not waiting for long, despite arriving midday. The inside was just stunning - the water was unbelievably blue and yet crystal clear. You really have to see it! The tour was conducted...More

The trip itself is quite short, the cave is pretty small so within half an hour you're out. We booked the trip through Thomas Cook and did an all day trip around the island, this being one of the stops. You have a guide on...More

Glad we arrived for it opening as it got busy quickly. Interesting little underground lake. Interesting guide on the boat. Would recommend this as somewhere to see. It is only an hour out of your holiday not full day activity.

Boat ride on Pure cold water inside a cave is just different. There was even fish on the water that the guide said swims from the sea up to the lagoon.

There's a slope down to the boats and you'll need to hold them tight getting on and off the boat, but yes I'd say the experience is toddler friendly.
