Photo Gallery

The Grotto and Indian Head Cove are located within Bruce Peninsula National Park and  accessible via an easy 3 kilometre hike from the Cyprys lake main parking lot within the National Park.

 The best time to view The Grotto is early in the morning when the crowds are not too large.

 Sun sets in August are unique as the path of the setting sun penetrates the cave, very briefly and in small, piercing, rays.

From May to end of October reservations in advance is requred for visiting Grotto and Indian Cove places.
