The Great Cave really looks like a pirate cave. The cave entrance resembles a laughing face, with two small openings in the cliff, a nose in between and the main entrance below formed like a smiling mouth. It would make a cool entry on a treasure map.
The cave is accessible by aseries of three wooden ladders up a steep cliff. The main chamber is huge but lacks speleothems. There is a western branch with some stalagmite pillars.
The northern branch, leading to a second chamber with some speleothems, is not recommended. The passage is collapsed and it is necessary to crawl. Also this part is inhabited by a bat colony which is disturbed by the visitors.
