  • One of many beautiful and larger caves. It's nesting home for many birds who's nests are inside of the cave. We have seen wild goats hanging out at the entrance above too. It can get crowded with tourist boats of any size so as private vessels and motorboats. Lots of people swim and snorkel so take extra care moving around with boat. It's better to go earlier in the morning to avoid crowds.
  • Not only beautiful but also have interesting stories.
  • Must see, really cool cave. Great history behind it.
  • Nice, but not so spectacular.
  • Impressive cave. Rent a boat for the easiest access to the cave.

Where to stay in Lefkada

To escape the big crowds and soak up some island atmosphere, stay in one of the small villages on the eastern side of Lefkada, where you can choose from hillside villas providing modern amenities and sweeping sea views. For a more urban experience, explore the mid-range hotels of the island's eponymous capital, which offer air-conditioned rooms, free Wi-Fi, and easy foot access to shops, bars, and restaurants. Active vacationers can also try the small resort town of Vasiliki, a windsurfing center known for its affordable inns.
