Hundreds of thousands of years in the making, each underground cave is completely unique. Formed by water erosion, with the occasional help from some strong winds, it’s no wonder sea caves are a huge tourist draw for those who love Mother Nature’s spectacles. Just like these 13 breathtaking photos of cliffside cities and towns, you’ll be blown away by each of these incredible sea caves.
Cenote Dos Ojos – Tulum, Mexico
An excellent diving site, tourists and locals alike love visiting this incredible set of caves. The two caves known as Cenote Dos Ojos were created by two 21.33-metre sinkholes that were connected by a narrow underwater passageway. If you take one of the local guided tours or enter to scuba on your own, you’ll see lots of underwater fish and two types of shrimp. Rather stay at the water’s surface? There you can enjoy the bat cave!
Playa de las Catedrales – Ribadeo, Spain
Playa de las Catedrales, or the beach of the cathedrals, is located off the Cantabric Sea coast. To keep humans’ effect on these caves to a minimum, there is a limited number of people allowed into this attraction every day. You can make a reservation online ahead of time to ensure you and your travel companions will be able to get in. The arches and caves that make this place famous are only accessible during low tide which occurs twice a day.
