The cave is about 500 meters from the sea, and the water level in the lake is a meter above sea level.

Water rises from the cave system at a depth of 30 meters from one side of the cave and flows to the other end of the cave.It is calculated in 1959 in specific experiments with paint.

Cave, once consisted of two large caves, collapsed thousands of years ago. Today the cave is in the form of the letter “V” and two large sunken living room with an island in the middle.
