Blue Caves, Agios Nikolaos
(4.7/5 based on 850+ 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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Blue Caves and many more Volimes attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Volimes travel itinerary planner.

  • Worth a look if you do not close it though with the ferry from Zakynthos to Kefalonia. Beautiful caves of white and sparkling water millions of shades.

  • A unique place. The best impact to these caves by boat or dinghy, but you can also by swimming. The views are impressive. Interesting rock formations, wonderfully clear water. You can go down to the land, to eat or drink.

  • 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.
