Two Foot Bay Cave is also called Two Foot Bay Caves or Caves at Two Foot Bay. Actually there is not a single cave, its a ledge in the limestone cliff which forms a series of shallow grottoes or shelters. But despite not being spectacular caves, they are at least high enough to stand upright inside. But a few are considerably bigger. Barbudans have camped in the caves for centuries and have given them names, such as The Fridge, which is cool and breezy. Indian Cave was named after the drawings or petroglyphs left by the "Indians". The colloquial term means the Arawak or the Siboney, the original inhabitants of Barbuda.

If you just want to explore some caves ask a taxi driver to bring you to the end of the road. A local guide is essential when visiting some of the harder to reach caves. There are actually some real caves which require appropriate equipment and caving experience. Some of the caves cannot be visited at all without permission from the Barbuda Council.
