The visit to the sea caves of Palinuro is not to be missed if you are in the area. For a modest cost of €15 per person you will be ferried along a spectacular limestone coast with a succession of fascinating caves then given the chance of a swim in a beautiful cove. Do check the sea state before hand... More

A must do excursion. Includes a stop for a swim in a cove only accessible by boat. You can stay longer to swim then travel back in another, later boat.

One of the most beautiful trips in Palinuro because of the caves! Lovely! Amazing! We had beautiful day, amazing weather and Great time on the boat! We were 3 adults and 2 Kids (15 and 4 years old). It all took something about 2-3 hours.

Very beautiful tour of all the Palinuro sea caves. Also a visit to the beaches is also provided between the cave visits. The staff is well prepared and caring, also they seam to organize well with a fluctuating flux of tourists. A free hotel pick up service is also included.

On the day we arrived it was late afternoon and the sea was choppy, so they recommended to wait till the next morning. Next morning we showed up. The sea was still a bit choppy, so the guy in the tickets booth said we'd... More
