This large cave is located in a tight corner of a rocky coastline. Facing due north, it gets very little natural light. After swimming for about 60m into the cave over a bottom of fine sand and shingle, several loose boulders form an upwards slope leading to a second massive cave. Here you can surface in a large air pocket totally enclosed by rock. The ceiling of this cave is about 5m above the water level while the furthest walls are approximately 35m away. The sight on the way out of this cave – blue open water with the sun shining through from the outer reef – is very impressive.
