Levant Cave is a cave in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.[1] Together with Tina's Fissure and George's Bottom Cave, Levant Cave is part of a close group of three caves at the southern end of the Upper Rock Nature Reserve.[2]

The "Levant series of caves" consists of Levant Cave, George's Bottom Cave, and Gibbon's Cave. Levant Cave was discovered in a similar way to Lower St. Michael's Cave as they were both discovered during military tunnelling. In the case of Levant Cave the Royal Engineers were tunnelling to build a command centre for the 9.2 inch gun at Levant Battery. The tunnelling damaged the cave but some attractive formations remain.[2]
