The first area encountered to the north-east of the beach is the shapely and very enticing Cave of Pets. The cave is a delight, with good water and a relaxed feel to it. The viewing is great, the access usually easy to arrange, and there's even a central access blowhole! The final treat is the excellent running-jump from the top platform.
