“Nice little adventure”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We found the little old building on the edge of town with stairs that lead down to one of the caves. The climbing is not too rigorous. I tend to have some claustrophobia but this little climb down didn't bother me, and I enjoyed experiencing the cave in this way.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

We paid $4/ person and walked down 149 stairs to a platform inside one of the deep coves along the cliff. It is neat to see from the backside, but certainly not worth paying to see. If you've done cave tours before, skip this or you'll be disappointed.

We enjoyed seeing the caves with La Jolla kayak company. The guides were great . We learned some local history and went inside one of the larger caves. Fun for the family!

“Fun but not essential”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Price was o.k. $4 for adults, $3 for child. Watch your head descending steps. Must be able to navigate steps.
