Cave details

Vertical range:

A sea cave with a deep fossil blowhole. The blowhole has enlarged due to collapse. This is the only sea cave that is long or deep enough to earn a place in this database, and is the deepest (or tallest) sea cave in the World.

A large collapse of one wall (a section of wall part way down the shaft detatched itself and disintegrated into the bottom of the shaft) in February/March 2008 may have blocked access to the lower part of the cave, but this could be dug out again, and will at some point be washed out by the sea. As a result, the depth is still counted as being the same, even though it is currently considered too unstable for the full depth to be safely navigable by humans.
