First of all the grotto is 2 levels, Iberia and lower: The lower one you will do it via boat and it's colder there ...way colder. The upper level is on foot... More

We thought this was an absolutely amazing set of caves The cable car up to the top is safe and a bit of fun. You can walk through the top caves at your leisure. You then get a tractor and trailer ride down to the bottom caves and board a boat for a trip through the caves which are incredible.... More

Not far from Beirut and easy to include on a day visit around Lebanon. Well organized; low cost at LL 18,000; easy to walk through the higher caves and short boat trip though lower caves as flooded. Don't miss it

Jeita grotto shows the raw capabilities of nature on a grand scale and is another must visit when in Lebanon. Those of a geographic/nature disposition will particularly enjoy the site as it shows the development of staligtites and stalagmites

It's really a must visit city-seen. It's the nature real wonder to see just Grotto which shaped by nature and feel God's miracle there to let dripping water shaping the stones like smooth layers, curtains and ice cream cones. The best part is the lower Grotto which requires boat to visit. Highly recommend for any visitor to Lebanon.

This is an amazing grotto, actually two grottos. The first is larger and dry with capricious formations. The second lower grotto is smaller and you navigate it in a small boat. Definitely the highlight of our trip so far.

These caves are the most visited tourist site in the country, and after a late Friday visit here I can easily see why. The grottos were my last stop on a day that took me north to Byblos and up to Harissa (see separate reviews), fittingly providing a coda for the week before I returned to Beirut. Discovered serendipitously in... More

This cave complex consists of two main caverns. The upper level is amazing, huge with well organized walkways. The second is only accessable by boat and gives you this out of this world experience. A must see for any visitor to Lebanon

Stunning site--but no photos are allowed. I recommend an early arrival. By the time we left it was very crowded. It's certainly a must-see.
