This is one such place where one gets to see multiple caves in just one trip. The place, being a world heritage now, is well maintained. The feeling one gets after reaching this place is priceless if you are a history lover. Apart from visiting the caves, one also gets a chance to trek Canon hill situated on this island. Travelling part is also an adventurous one as the only way to get into this island known as Gharapuri island is through sea. So the view one gets while leaving the Gateway of India, crossing another tiny island called as Butcher island (controlled by Navy), to the fascinating view of sea and hills while approaching this island is totally a rich experience. Take a toy train after reaching the island which takes you till the footsteps of the caves. One has to then climb 120 steps to reach the caves. Overall a visit to this place is an enthralling one.

Be careful of the monkeys there although I found them harmless.

Ferry ride is worth. It takes 60min to reach the island.
