The caves are pretty extensive but easy to navigate through. You’ll find bats, and we also saw a couple of cave spiders. Outside the caves are some nice garden areas to hang out for a bit. Afterward you can just walk a few miles back to the island or if you start walking you’ll find a cheap ride back pretty easy.
