If you are in the area this is a quick fabulous pit stop. The sea cave is great and then you can go above and hike around it to look down.

We were surprised how nice it was to see this work of nature and it's free! Not many people during the week day in December but I'm sure that it's crowded during the summer as there are some very nice beaches next to this cave.

Very nice place for a walk. You can feel the power of the ocean and big waves. You can also go fishing there

Especially if you're a geology nerd or a fan of hiking around small towns. We walked there from our hotel (Tokyu hotel Shimoda) in the morning and were back before lunch. Passed by several nice beaches and really felt the cave was worth the walk....More
