Mother nature really out did herself when she formed Fantasy Caves, where the rock formations and sparkling underground waters really are amazing.

The walls in Fantasy Cave are covered in calcite mineral deposits from ancient waterfalls, and a state-of-the-art lighting system really allows you to get a good look.

Location

Set toward the eastern outskirts of Henrys Hill, in the same vicinity as Castle Harbour, Fantasy Caves happily welcomes local residents and visitors who are rooming in this village or in the surrounding area. Whether or not you are staying in the vicinity, you should feel free to stop by to check out the sights. If you're curious, St. George is three miles (five kilometers) to the northeast.

Bus routes 1, 3, 10, and 11 will provide you with transportation to the caves.

Nearby Restaurants

If you've worked up an appetite during your visit to the cave, don't worry -- you'll discover a plentiful supply of local restaurants in this general area. The most convenient restaurant to Fantasy Caves is Bailey's Bay Ice Cream Parlour, which offers International dishes. The restaurant is a small distance away, but distant enough that you will probably want to arrange for taking advantage of a viable method of transportation to travel there. Also within reach, you and your party will find eateries including Tony's Fine Foods and Tom Moore's Tavern where you and your companions will be able to try a bit of Continental food and experience the flavors of Bermuda.

Visitors that enjoy caves, and have the energy to view some others, might consider a trip to Crystal Caves and Cathedral Cave; the first and closest of which is less than a hundred yards to the south-southeast of this cave. Additional nearby attractions include Blue Hole Hill Park, which is a few hundred yards away Castle Harbour. Also think about heading to Ducks Puddle Park And Annex, which is another nearby attraction.
