We arrived by boat, and wished we had worn proper beach shoes as the rocks were very sharp in places. We climbed the steps to the entrance and walked down the steps into the cave, watch you head on the rocks, you have to crouch...More

We went to the caves on our last morning in the Yasawa Islands. Whilst it gave us something to do on our last morning, it wasn't really worth it all. They really are just plain caves, not anything special, I have to say I am...More

This was probably one of the worst tourist experiences we have had. The water was dirty, the people trying to sell you things you don't need on beach were rude, the cave is pitch black - there is nothing to see. This is nothing short...More

I climbed up, but I think you can access some of the jumping spots from outside as well. Climbing up is a bit slippery, but doable if you have any strength at all.
