Milatos caves

Fantastic eerie place to visit with a haunting history behind it. Remember to take torches, sensible shoes and a drink. Well worth the visit to local history.

do not listen to reps when they say it is only 30 mins from village not on foot hire a quad bike but you must have licence with you then 30 mins take torch as there is no lighting in cave worth the trip if only to see inside

Great to be able to wander into and around a cave without having to stick to designated pathways. However, learn from our mistake and take a torch to prevent stubbed toes!

This attraction is ok if you have nothing else to do .I suppose the history aspect is worth knowing.Not an attraction for young children,they would be very bored.

Too far to walk from Milatos village, but easy by car. Pathway is a bit uneven so don't wear your stilettos! Make sure you bring torches because the cave is unlit and quite low, so keep your head down in some places and look out for the little church inside

Very intersting cave, first off you need a car, it's out of the way and not very well marked, so be prepared to get a little turned around but you'll make it. If you're elderly i would not recommend this cave. You park by the side of the road (there is no parking, there's room for about 3-4 cars) and... More

Having spent numerous holidays in Greece, basically not moving from the beach, I was in awe! Spent a week early October exploring caves, waterfalls and beautiful traditional villages in the mountains. Milatos cave must be my favourite one. After having a meal in a family tavern in nearby Kounali (a must go!) we left the car on road and walked... More

A nice ex pat english couple rent out torches to see the cave. Some degree of agility needed to get the best out of the cave. 5K from the Minos Imperial. Lovely drive by quad bike

Travelled by car, can be walked to from Milatos if its cloudy!!! The path to the cave from the road is a little lumpy the cave is very dark and quite deep, a torch is definitely needed, inside the cave the floor is very uneven with some rather large hollows, small chapel in there too. Weve been nothing to write... More
