The cave floor is submerged in water, with only the ceiling above the water, creating a space for small boats to pass from space to space.

The area divided into 2 parts is Light cave and Dark cave. Dark cave is so named because it is a small, long cave and is often swallowed by the tide. Therefore, the cave is difficult to traverse. To ensure the safety of visitors, Dark Cave is usually not open to visitors.

The height of the cave depends on the rise and fall of the tide and depending on the dry season or high water season. However, Sang cave is usually about 3m high, about 4m wide and about 100m long.
