Davaar Island and the Crucifixion Cave

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation


Cross the long causeway that links Davaar Island to the mainland at low tides and explore a number of sea caves including one with a famous crucifixion painting, and then follow a track to the lighthouse at the northern most point. NOTE: This walk is only possible at low tide - you must check tide times before you plan your day and allow plenty of time to return as the tide comes in fast and completely submerges the causeway.
