 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): This L shape cave is really great. Once in, just go to the surface and watch the bats! Then go back to the bottom and continue to the NW. There is a nice lightening window on the right (good for photographers). Turn left and you should see the exit. There are often reef sharks at the exit point, or below the large rock just after the exit.

The marine life in the cave is really great. A lot of flatworms, sea slugs, crabs, cat sharks...
