Who would have thought that these two caves, renowned in folklore as the site where two lovers burst through rock and into heaven, would be so dark, damp, gritty and full of bats?

This cave is totally different from the caves I have seen and been in. It is warm not cool. There are ancient Indian paintings on the ceiling. Most of them have been vandalized so the park service stepped in to protect what is left. There are bats in the back of the cave but they are fruit bats and will... More

This was a stop on our Land Rover tour and I'm glad we saw it. It is a small cave known for the bats and hand prints. As caves go, it isn't the best or largest, but the cliff opening and skylights are unique.

The cave is big and fun to explore, and the colors inside are really surprising, so are the rock formations. The light hits the cave and makes the vibe in there quite mystical. it's really very special, and adapted to kids too.

We saw the caves as part of the ABC Tour of the island. We were very happy to see it with a guide, since there is so much history and hidden legends that you would not know upon entering it alone. It was a very cool experience, two large rooms, so it's never too tight.

We made a stop at these caves as part of our land rover tour. Must climb a steep set of stairs and was mostly dark (flashlight needed) but did have areas of light coming through from where it had worn holes above. Lots of bats. Neat place to visit and check out.

Channel the Indiana Jones in you and explore these caves. Alternating areas of dark tunnel and chambers lit by light from above, You can go pretty deep into the cave by natural light. It really is a nifty experience, conjuring thoughts of pirates and lost treasure. Check it out!

It is always interesting and impressive to witness what mother nature could do. This cave is a natural wonder. Yes, it is dark and there are bats. Pay attention - you will see an old indian face in a rock. The story around the cave is pretty fascinating. It is a must see!

Climb the steps up to the caves and see how nature carved out the caves. Home to Bats. The tour guide had some interesting stories about the caves. Nearby we stopped at the Fontain Fish Pedicure pool. Everyone got a pedicure from the small fish in the pool. Fun for the whole family.
