  • This place will paint a holiday on a nearby beach. Admission is about 5 euros. It will take 30-40 minutes to survey the caves. There's sharp ups so: 1. wear clothes that will allow you to move freely and bully your legs 2. Wear comfortable sports shoes with no slippery soles. It offers great views of both the beach and the bay, so take a photo or a selfie camera ;)

  • Very beautiful caves to visit on foot, but difficult to access because you have to climb the cliffs if you want to go to the top. 2nd free entry under 18 set right next to the beach and village

  • Cheap entrance fee, hot, dangerous a bit boring after you see a few caves that are quite similar after a while. The effort it takes to navigate around is not worth the effort. Pretty views of the beach.
  • The caves are worthwhile a trip. especially if you combine it with a few hours at the matala beach. The entrance fee is only two euros which is very reasonable and you can go all the way up the cliff.
