Ghar Lapsi is best known by scuba divers for the more than 40 meters long, shallow and well-lit cave system. Cave's many outlets and cracks in the ceiling allow a lot of light to seek in, making it beautiful dive especially during the day with beams of sunlight dancing in the cave on the corals. Ghar Lapsi cave is full of colour and a paradise for underwater photographers.

Entrance to Ghar Lapsi cave system is opposite the entry/exit point within the cove at depth of about x meters. The underwater cave system has multiple outlets to the open sea. Maximum depth in the cave is about 8 meters on the sea side. The cave system is quite long but easy to navigate in daylight. The cave is rather flat and wide, and is best suited for divers with good buoyancy control and full suit to avoid scratches. Inside the cave there is also a tunnel leading to a small air pocket.

The cave is a nice way to start or finish a dive to one of the reefs in Ghar Lapsi, usually Finger Reef or Middle Reef.

If the sea is rough do not attempt this dive, because there can be very strong surges in the cave.
