Blue Caves, Agios Nikolaos

4.4
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Volimes
Experience the tranquility and piercing blue water of Blue Caves. They're only accessible by sea, so you'll have to rent a boat or join a boat tour to make the trip. From the outside, the caves appear to be small tunnels burrowing into the rock. Inside, the whole world turns blue due to the reflection of the vibrant blue mix of water and sky. Diving in the cave is a surreal experience. Underneath the water's surface, you're enveloped by darkness. Rays of light peek through the cave walls, casting small turquoise patches onto the water. Plan your visit to Blue Caves and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Agios Nikolaos online tour planner.
