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.

  • Best on the Lake Melissani go on a sunny day, because the Sun's rays bouncing off a mirror water cause the stalactite rock incredibly to glisten, and the water becomes magically Turquoise. Fairytale place created by nature delights, and at the same time, tends to the thoughts of the wonders of mother nature. Visit, therefore, is a wonderful place and behold otherworldly views.
