The whole trip will cost you 85$ (if you are staying at the Nabua Lodge). You will drive about 30 minutes or more to the Cave, for just a swim in a beautiful landscape. The cave was really nice but there where lots of leaves...More

We arrived by boat, and wished we had worn proper beach shoes as the rocks were very sharp in places. We climbed the steps to the entrance and walked down the steps into the cave, watch you head on the rocks, you have to crouch...More

Very interesting side trip to the top of the Yasawa Island chain of volcanic islands. You don't have to pay the women with their tables of reasonably priced shell jewelry to get inside the caves, but they do supplement their meager resources from such sales......More

C'mon everyone. The adventure of swimming in this area is so worth the effort to go. If you are in the area and have this chance, take it! It was so cool to be in there. The water temperature was just a couple of degrees...More

We went to the caves on our last morning in the Yasawa Islands. Whilst it gave us something to do on our last morning, it wasn't really worth it all. They really are just plain caves, not anything special, I have to say I am...More

This was probably one of the worst tourist experiences we have had. The water was dirty, the people trying to sell you things you don't need on beach were rude, the cave is pitch black - there is nothing to see. This is nothing short...More

I climbed up, but I think you can access some of the jumping spots from outside as well. Climbing up is a bit slippery, but doable if you have any strength at all.
