When this island is pretty quiet there is not many things to see, but this is one of the "musts". Take some drinking water with you, it might be good to have after climbing the steps to the cave entrance opposite the parking lot. If...More

You don't need to hire a sarong at the parking lot and can go upto the temple, make a donation which is accepted with thanks and they'll lend you a sarong. Holy water is sprinkled on you before you enter the cave. Be prepared to...More
