Melissani Cave, Sami

4.2
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.

  • Cave to visit and see with a small boat with a tourist guide right down in there. Must see place for a short while.  more »
  • The Melissani Caves are a sight to see. Stalagtites, a beautiful waterway with a boat ride. Colorful, picturesque. Cave is beautiful with the sun coming in from above a center piece.  more »
  • The entry was I think 7 euros, it waits a bit for the investment but it pays off. Arrive around 12,13 pm for a nicer water color. Be sure to visit.  more »

  • Amazing! must do in kefalonia. But make sure to go around noon for the best views.
  • amazing.
  • Must visit. Beautiful.
  • Not worth waiting all these long queues
  • Local "tourist trap" ;) But nice one.... One of very popular touristic location. Big line, but move fast. Cave looks really beautiful, but the whole tour is about 5 min.
