Crooked Island has several interesting caves with magnificent limestone formations that, locals say, hide many secrets from the past. The stalactites and stalagmites take on unusual forms and shapes, some resembling the ruins of churches and castles.

Visiting caves on a boat ride from the mainland is a regular part of local holiday celebrations. Here are some of the favorites:

  • The caves at Turtle Sound spill out onto this inland waterway.
  • Macki Bluff, located near the airport in the Colonel Hill settlement, has a seaside cave that is more easily accessible by boat from the sea; water enters it at high tide. A cave on the land side can be reached by a hardy trek on foot.
  • Bat Cave, in the Pittstown Point area, is interesting because of the creatures for which it is named.
  • Gun Bluff Cave is located east of Pittstown Point; the area was a former British fort.
  • At Richmond Hill, there is a cave with a well inside that was built by slaves, along with the carved steps leading to it.
