Excellent. Caves are awe inspiring. You can buy tickets at the location but we chose to pre book on the Internet to make sure we got the guided tour in English, not just the audio guide which you can go round with. Easy bus ride...More

I had no expectations about what to expect when we drove there, and I was blown away by the spectacle of the caves. They are utterly massive and I’ve never seen caves as incredible as these before. We paid for the English guided tour which...More

Came today to show friends who are visiting Nerja. The whole experience is very rushed, the caves poorly illuminated and we were escorted by a very bored guide who obviously didn’t want to be there. Not really recommend - a shame as the caves of...More

Stunning and beautiful wonder under the earth. Intriguing other worldliness of the wonderland under the earth. I am scared of heights and at times the caves are 30 metres deep but the paths are wide and the railings made me feel safe. Do n't miss...More

These Caves were recommended to us and were well worth the trip. Beware though when we went there we were dropped off during siesta. It was closed for 2 hours and we had to hang around for a long time. However the caves were everything...More

No need for car , local bus easy to get at Nerja bus station . Fairly regular service . Keep the cave ticket as it gives you free entry to Nerja Museum , we’ll worth a visit .
