Melissani Cave, Sami

(3.6/5 based on 2,800+ 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.

  • We have visited the Melissani Cave in September 2016. We were around noon on site, since we had read that the colors on the water and in the cave are the most beautiful, when the Sun is right above the cave and that's right. The entrance of 7 euros is not much, you travel by boat around in the cave, but you are also so back again. More can they really not for questions. To the "Captain/Guide" of the boat can still be a tip given voluntarily, but we found the 7 Euro really enough for this bezienswaardiheid.
