I can't even describe how beautiful this place is. Even when you walk down the slope to the rowing boats, you see how crystal clear the water is. The men who row the boats are brilliant - always stop to take your photos with your camera so you don't have to worry about missing anything. They give you a little... More

The visit takes no longer than one hour and it is really worth to go there. The water is so clean that you can see the shadow of the boats on the bottom of the lake and this gives you the impression that they are floating in the air. Really wonderful.

The walk down to the cave is really steep no steps just a slope, if you have problems with walking or heart problems it will be a struggle. When you get there there are about 4 boats you all pile on I think a boat seats about 10, the man rows you around the cave and tells you how deep... More

Went as part of a group. I have never seen anything like it but its not amazing. They have really bright lights which get in the way of good photos! It was a bit damp under foot so was taking extra care! The history of the cave is interesting and I think it would of added to the trip had... More

Try and go around midday so the sun is shining in because the colour of the water is exquisite. You won't be in there for long so plan it around something else; we went on to Antisamos beach.

We hired a car for five days to travel the Island of Kefalonia, and this was our day 4... Such a beautiful idyllic attraction, you are taken around the lake by boat by a greek man who signs and tells you the legacy of the lake. Ideal time to go is between 1-3pm when the sun is directly above the... More

Worth a visit. Such blue water and the light bouncing off it is magical. We went as part of a coach tour with Panam and had an incredibly knowledgeable English guide who explained the formation of the cave before we got there - the water comes from the sea and flows through the island over several days so the water...

A short walk down to the lake ,quick and easy to get into the small boat and you are in paradise.the colours are fantastic, but go between 12 noon and 3pm for the best light,it takes around 15 minutes to drift gently around this beautiful oasis.Well worth a visit.There is a shop, cafe and toilet facilities .
