Skull Cave is easy to access and a wooden stair leads into the cave entrance. There are two main chambers connected by passages with vaulted ceilings.

The cave was named Skull Cave, because the entrance looks a little bit like a skull. This impression is probably due to the pale colour of the light gray limestone. The entrance is also nice and photogenic because of various interesting plants like bougainvilla and various cacti.
