Kristal Cave Explore this cave with
blue crystal clear water...

Why is Kristal Cave so special?

The Kristal Cave is a natuarally formed limestone cave with a deep water pond ideal for adventurous active visitors...

Some minor climbing is required to reach the pond but for the persistent tourist, it's worth it..

Kristal Cave FAQs

Will I have time?

A short 30 minute car ride from most hotels in the Kupang city limits will get you there... Normally about an hour there is more than enough but it completely depends on your own schedule... Total time 3-4 hours from the time you leave...

Located just off the main road heading to POLAIR (Water Police) office in Bolok... Most taxi drivers know exactly where it is and is locally known as Gua Kristal Bolok... Once you are parked, the walk is less than 3 mins to the cave entrance...

Anything to remember?

Although the walk from the parking area to the entrance is easy, you still need to watch your step and good walking shoes are recomended due to some sharp edged rocks along the path... Be careful climbing down into the cave...

How do I get there?

Because no local transport passes along this main road, your best chance to get there is by either local taxi (ask your hotel reception), Grab Car (App required), or Gojek (Motorbike App)...

How much will it cost?

The rental taxi will be the most expensive transport option as they may be as much as IDR150k - 200k for the round trip including waiting while you visit the Kristal Caves... I would explore the Grab Car option as they are cheaper...

What can I do there?

The Kristal Cave is famous for it's crystal clear water and the main activities are swimming, snorkeling and free diving to explore the cavern... If you are a competent diver and wish to explore the cave using SCUBA with Donovan Whitford, then quickly contact Dive Kupang Dive...

Best season and best time of day

The Kristal Caves can be visited all year round as the pond clarity is not affected by rainfall whatsover...

Depending on the exact month and exact time of day, sometimes light will shine directly onto the posnd surface creating a bright atmosphere...

As a general rule I have found it brighter between 1pm and 3pm but again this depends on the month...

There is no official parking area but most likely there will be some young boys ready to show you the best parking location and guard your vehicle while you visit the caves...
