We visited this geological phenomenon as part of an overall walk from our hotel in Lassi en route to Argostoli and thought it was worth the walk to. The windmill is probably the star of the show however the small pools dotted around are interesting to look at. I think the site would benefit from an information board with a... More

This waterwheel is situated close to Lassi. It leads to a phenomenon where sea water appears to disappear through clefts in the rock. When we visited, the restaurant was not open and we were the only people there so it was tranquil. Worth a visit.

It is a stop before the Lighthouse, well maintained, nice picture spot with palm trees and it is good to know that the seawater disappears here and reappears in the Melissani lake, but nor much else to it. A night club is there but was closed as it was end season.

Looked like it was deserted and had just been left. No one was around at all but one of the previous reviewers said he had drinks there so maybe i was wrong. Not much to see just a wooden wheel and knowing the water there would end up at the other side of the island.

Unusual place easily missed, but well worth a stop, if only to have look at the way the architects have built what appears to be a nightclub, but I understand is a restaurant. There are no opening times, but I was told it to be a popular place for Sunday lunch, and I imagine wedding receptions. At least you can... More

I went here for my birthday and despite being in the middle of the biggest storm they'd had for 10 years I would highly recommend Katavothres. The location we fabulous and it was the hippest place we found on the island. The food was great, the service even better (maybe because it wasn't that busy?) and I can imagine on... More

We decided to take the 'scenic' route back after a day in Argostoli and stopped off here to see the interesting geological feature where the sea enters a sink hole; it 'reappears' at Melissani cave on the opposite side of the island. It isn't very well sign posted and there isn't much to see apart from a rather picturesque waterwheel.... More
