Melissani Cave, Sami
(3.6/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
An underground cave, Melissani Cave was created by the dissolution of rocks. The geologic wonder--3.5 km (2.2 mi) long, 40 m (131 ft) wide, and 36 m (118 ft) high--is home to the blue waters of an underground lake. Explore the cave and lake by boat, which leads you through the large open area and continues through an incredibly narrow passage into a second cavern. Make Melissani Cave a centerpiece of your Sami vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Sami vacation generator.

  • Truly a miracle of nature to fascinate the feeling like being in a fairy tale ... If they had the House Elves believe that the cave would be self melissanis!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gorgeous brackish Lake by unique colors, but in August it's a little too busy and guided tours are a tad short, better visit it in other months.

  • If you were to go to Kefalonia, you would never and I mean never miss this lovely retreat, the visit takes minutes and well worth the trip! A wonderful place and our escort boat really very cute ... on sunny days the colors are amazing ...
