Bermuda's Crystal Cave

I am linking my Bermuda's Crystal Cave with Scenic Sunday. I have not shown all my Bermuda photos and I thought our visit to the Crystal Caves would be a great post. After our three hour tour of the island we asked to be dropped off at the Crystal Caves. Hubby loves spleunking so I thought a tour of these caves would be perfect for him. We had time to get a quick bite to eat while we waited for the next tour. I was happy sitting at the tables outside watching the birds we waited. 


We had a nice tour guide during our visit to the caves, he told us the story about how the caves were originally found. The story goes two 12 year old boys looking for their lost cricket ball that fell down into a hole. The boys follow the ball down into the hole and discovered the cave. Crystal Cave got its name from the deep crystal pools in the cave.


The water is so clear you can see the bottom of the cave floor.



I am pretty sure these formations are called straws.


There were floating bridges so we could walk back further into the cave. It was pretty cool checking out all the formations.





More formations in the water and reflections.




I hope you enjoyed my Bermuda Crystal Caves post and to see more click  Scenic Sunday .  Thanks to the host of Scenic Sunday the Holleys. Thank You for visiting my post and blog, as always I appreciate the visits and the comments.  Have a great weekend!!!

  7. What an absolutely beautiful cave, so many soda straws on the ceiling. Love the idea of all that water making this a living cave.

  11. I have been there! It is so beautiful. We have been traveling to Bermuda, off and on, for about thirty years. It is a beautiful island and the snorkeling is great.
    We were a year ago for the first tine in about eight years. I thought Hamilton had really changed a lot. There were a lot of closed storefronts. I hope the bad economy is not hurting them like it is us.
    Crystal Cave was the first cave my youngest daughter had ever seen. She talked about it for years.
    Thanks for sharing this beautiful site and your pictures are great. Tinger

  19. You got remarkable pictures in that cave -- which is very hard to do! I've enjoyed the different caves we've toured, but would be afraid to go into them alone. My cricket ball would have just remained lost forever!

  23. yes, those are straws. I like visiting caves, some people don't.

    I was proud of the Mulu Caves and when I went was the biggest caves in the world. Now, it seems they found bigger caves in Vietnam. So I will have to find some money to go there.

  26. I for got to tell you. The crow is made from a shovel, rake, rebar and some other implement. I bought it at a little man's house in Tennessee. He had them in his garage. Thanks for your visit. Ginger
