  • An absolute attraction during a boat trip. Ships sail into the cave where the II WK was hiding a ship. Possibility for a swim in the cave. Impressive natural wonders. Highly recommended.

  • 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.
  • Must see, really cool cave. Great history behind it.
  • Not only beautiful but also have interesting stories.
  • Nice, but not so spectacular.
  • Impressive cave. Rent a boat for the easiest access to the cave.
