Sea Caves

Carved by the power of oceans, sea caves may be gentle or treacherous to explore. Found along coasts throughout the world, they can get surprisingly large.

Lava Tubes

Caves can also be formed from flowing lava, and are called lava tubes when they do. There are many fascinating things to be found inside.

Erosional and Glacier Caves

Caves may be eroded in a variety of rocks: granite, sandstone, even ice, by the power of water and wind-borne particles. Or water may simply melt passages through ice.
