Blue Caves, Agios Nikolaos

(4.7/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is one of the main attractions of the island. Visited mainly, on the way to the Bay of the wreck, however, you can visit independently. You can visit there a small ship that has the possibility of entering the caves. Inside you can admire the phosphorescent water colors: turquoise, Sapphire, blue ... Tempting to dive and admire the underwater world! Available from the sea. Similar rock formations are also located in the South of the island: Keri caves. I recommend to see both places!

  • Blue Caves is one of the main attractions of the island, so they are quite often visited by cruise ships with tourists on board. The ships will affect the inside, blue, sparkling water bounces off the walls. I also recommend diving in this area. Is a sight to behold.

  • Going to Zante and don't go blue cavern, wreck and Bochali is like going to Paris and not go Eiffel Tower and Louvre. An authentic place with a great sense of nature and with admiration for her creations. Attention to choose to go by boat from Agios Nikolaos and not with large ships to enter the cave to admire from the inside and bathrooms inside, yes means you will never forget. Second to go a bit early in the morning with eight and a half so that the Sun in right angle to get inside and to illuminate the Grotto. The sight of blue light inside of the cave is exquisite and you won't see any other time so. The unlikely experience.

  • Nothing overly special - just some blue water if the sun is right. Caves not blue, just average sea shaped limestone caves. Very very busy with tourist boats, to the extent difficult to appreciate any tranquility. Worth a look but if money tight you won't have missed much by just looking at photos.
  • Well worth the visit. The water has to be seen to be believed
  • Only accessible by boat, this natural phenomenon has to be seen to be awed. One gotcha, flying bugs shelter from the sun in the cave, get too close and they fly out in swarms, you have been warned!
  • Speechless..wonderfull colors..
  • Very nice but some people say that Keri Caves are slightly better and I think the same but still, must see for all visiting Zante.
