Park
“This is a natural cave and always WOW'S me every time I go. It is a tram ride so you can sit and relax or go on one of their eco-adventures which gives you full hands on experience. ”

Bar
“Breathtaking cliff views of the north coast of the island, the iconic natural window views of the cave itself, and a rustic cliff lounge that is a writer's dream. If you take an actual tour of the cave, the natural 9ft deep pool (the famous one where Rihanna did one of her ad campaigns) will not disappoint. The cliffside restaurant also has fantastic food. Try their blackened barracuda or any catch of the day.”

“Another one of my favourite eating places, especially to link n lime with friends. It's a bar and grill and the food is great!!!! Two of my favourite dishes, is the Pork Loin, wrapped in bacon, with mash potatoes, local vegetables and an onion gravy!! The other is the Lamb Burger!! although I say all the burgers are homemade and delicious. Great Cocktails too and they have drinks specials on different nights. Eat in or outside. The atmosphere, vibes and music is great! Situated in Worthing...only about 20mins drive away.”
