The cave has been closed for safety reasons. The view point is still worth stopping for, as the view over Ramla bay is superb. Other than that, there's a wee snack stall, tourist shop and toilets.

No. You could drive to the Blue Lagoon walk and swim from there. But to dive there you would usually take a boat trip.
