Fantastic rock formations and stalactites grow underground in Jeita Grotto, a set of natural underground caves visitors can explore on foot and by boat. Formed over thousands of years of dissolution of the limestone layer, the caves were discovered in the late 19th century. Evidence of prehistoric, early Bronze Age use permeates the site, which includes a lower chamber filled with a naturally occurring lake which visitors traverse on small guided rowboats, and an upper dry chamber linked by walkways. Photography isn't permitted within the grottos, but you can stash your cameras and backpacks in the lockers available near the entrance.

Jeita Grotto Reviews
the truth is that the visit is worth it. THE grotto itself is magnificent, and the arrival that can be by cable car is a wonderful op more »
One of the world’s best attractions. The natural, the size, the landscapes are all incredible. I wish there were enough good hotels around for visitors to spend more time there. more »
Good surprise. Surely as I wasn’t expecting much from yet another cave (having seen many). The second part done with boats is actually fun thought that cave is less interesting...
Awesome place. Stunning view. Really amazing and mind blowing. But Don't allow to take photos. Can't keep the memories. I think they don't like more people to come and promote their tourism.
