In terms of caves, this is an amazing, impressive place. It reminds you of what a marvelous living being our planet is and the wonderful things mother nature is able to create. The most impressive view? When you are exiting the cave and you get the most amazing view of the ocean from the cave's entrance.

However, in order to make this cave tourist accessible, it has been seriously intervened and some stalagmites and stalactites have been cut to make sure no one gets hurt through the walk or people are able to walk along the path.I guess that's the price to pay...

On the other side, our guide, a guy named Jordi, was EXTREMELY rude to my group. He was impatient, rude, talked back and completely disregarded the fact that we were visiting with 3 kids and he had to, as a tourist guide, adapt to the circumstance, be patient and always kind. The purpose of a tourist guide is to make sure your visitors enjoy the experience.

If it wasn't for him, the caves would have been a 5 star experience.

We arrived at 10am and were fortunate to be in a group of only 7 for our guided tour of the caves.
On arrival you are greeted with dramatic location, set on the beautiful coastline on one side and a sweeping stair exiting from the cliffside. The caves are a maze of stalactites and stalagmites and are very atmospheric and impressive. The guide was interesting and knowledgeable and did not hurry us through the tour. At the end of the tour you emerge at the top of the stairs into the daylight with a magnificent view of the sea. We did note that as we exited 2 or 3 coach loads had arrived and large groups were entering. It does pay to get there early as the caves benefit from a little solitude and perhaps the tours may be a bit more hectic with larger crowds.
If you are buying your ticket at the entrance, present a voucher which can be printed off from their website prior to your visit and they will give you a little souvenir booklet. There is a small cafe at the entrance and parking and toilets are available.

You must see the caves of Arta. It is impressive, how mother nature can create this. Unortunately it take 100 years for a stallagmit to grow 1 cm. So we will not have the pleasure to see it growing... :-)

Caves of Arta located in beautiful town Porto Christo. The ticket is 12 eur for adult. Inside is dark and a lot of dumpness which causes a light cold sweating but its normal. Its one of these places worth to see once in your life but no need to visit it again I think once its enough to have a nice experience.
