It is a useless and a small place with nothing to view. It ends as soon as it starts. This is close to Kudle beach and is small quite and dark cave.

If you come up here at sunset, you can watch all the bats fly out of the cave! Small dark cave (torch is a must). Another nice spot to spend sunset

A very shady cave in the middle of nowhere. The flashlight was a must. As we entered, a bat flew over our heads which set a very adventurous tone to the particular experience. A few steps later we saw the end of it.
