We couldn't make it bcs of the overgrown plants and the access it is completely blocked by that. The street looks good, but after you get in 1/4 of mile, even the most motivated visitor would give up. Very disappointed.

We passed this several times and finally decided to check it out. It is not far off the paved road and you can miss it if you looking at the ocean. It's on your right less than a quarter mile in. It's easily accessible with stairs and ladders. Make sure to bring a flashlight if you go very deep which we did not, but it does go on for a mile and at the end you either walk back or climb a rope to get out. We will try it on our next visit and get a guide to make sure we don't make a wrong turn. It's much more elaborate than Preachers Cave and great if you are a explorer.

We were unable to tour the whole cave because we did not have flashlights. However, the part we did see was covered with graffiti. Hopefully the rest of the cave is better.

We stopped into the caves to explore, glad we did, great place to get lost for a couple hours. Located just off of Queens Highway, we brought our camera to capture the mystery underground.
