Very windy at the top of here today, but worth it, the views spectacular. Even after 28 years which was the last time we visited. Recommended.

If you have read the Odyssey and want to keep your sense of awe about the different challenges Ulysses faced particularly his time with Calypso, you might want to skip this site. You can't see much of the cave since access has been restricted - too dangerous. It hardly looks like a place for romance and frolicking. The view of... More

Great views. Shame that the cave is no longer open owing to health and safety. Anybody who has an interest in Greek mythology should visit here, if staying in Gozo or Malta.

Visited in Dec 2016 with family part of our tour of Gozo Island. A lot of history behind & amazing views. The caves had been closed due to safety reasons of collapsing so they were not accessible but you can climb up to the view point and its wow !!! Definitely worth a visit.

The view from this lookout is incredible. Unfortunately there is not much else here as you cannot go into the caves

It is well worth to see the lovely view of Ramia Bay. Do not forget to buy first an amazing crispy pie at the food booth, together with a drink, and it gives you one of this awesome moments!

If it s not on your way, there is no reason to visit this "attraction". In case you are there, there is only a viewpoint of a sandy beach. They should inform people that cave is not visited.

The cave's entrance way has collapsed and is officially closed due to it being hazardous so other than ticking it off your bucket list, going there is a waste of time.

Well worth a visit for a beautiful view of Ramla bay. You can't access the cave anymore, the staircase is closed off, however, the viewing platform is quite a romantic place for a couple.
