Amazing place, well worth visiting. Only a shame you can't take pics. You will be requested to leave your cameras/phones in a secure locker at the entrance to the caves. Upper cave is a very large grotto with amazing display of impressive stalagmites and stalactites,...More

It is a must see. Avoid visiting during the rain as the lower grotto might be closed. The lower grotto is views on a boat in the cave and it is breath taking.

I have visited 9 caves in my life, Jeita is far the most beautiful, huge and interesting. If you are in Lebanon, don't miss it.

I have seen similar caves in Turkey, but Jeitta Grotto is the best I have ever seen. There is two caves in this center. First one has a fantastic view and second one's boat tour is very good.

One of the most important spots that you have to visit while you’re in Lebonan. An amazing self-created art for more than 60,000 years. You would enjoy the weather inside especially at the lower grotto. Bear in mind that you have to visit it in...More
