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 on the eastern edge of Henrys Hill, in the general vicinity of Castle Harbour, Fantasy Caves welcomes tourists rooming in this village or its vicinity. Whether or not you're staying nearby, you are free to drop by for some fun in the sun. It is 3.1 miles south west of St. George.

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

Nearby Restaurants

And, one of the most delightful possibilities while spending a few hours exploring the area is having a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of this cave. The nearest eatery to Fantasy Caves is Bailey's Bay Ice Cream Parlour, which has a menu full of International fare. The dining establishment is a slight distance away, but far-removed enough that you will probably decide to make arrangements for taking advantage of some means of transport to travel there. Also within a short distance, you and your group will come across restaurants like Tony's Fine Foods and Tom Moore's Tavern where you should try a bit of Continental cuisine and experience the flavors of Bermuda.

Nearby Attractions

Travelers who like caves, and would like to see 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 Fantasy Caves. There are at least one or two other activities nearby, including Blue Hole Hill Park, which is a few hundred yards away Castle Harbour. Also, you might think about heading over to Ducks Puddle Park And Annex, which is another attraction in the area.
