I can't help but think there was a little less to this than I had imagined. Whilst it was a beautiful cave to go and have a little trip around it really is a little trip. It's 7 euros per adult so not expensive but also will only pass half an hour of your time. The guides and staff are... More

A short boat trip around the cave, best combined with a visit to the other nearby cave attraction or a trip to the mountains or nearest beach. Fascinating and beautiful. The guide was very cheerful and took photos for people (with you in them!). We saw an eel in the water.

Beautifull and unique cave lake. The only diasadvantage was the time we had to wait in order to visit the place especially the part under the sun. I really recommend it

Had a nice visit to the cave, bit short but ok. had a bit of wait due to loads of coaches turning up. but well worth the views looking up once your on the little boats.

This will only ever be a very short trip and although has some interest, is a bit disappointing. The queue may be longer than the actual sorry trip in the boat looking at the cave. It is a welcome break from the heat but i am not certain it is worth the entrance fee.

We drove here in our hire car. Quite a journey for us, over a mountain !!! If you like hairpin bends then you will love it !!! Parked and walked a tiny distance to pay to enter. Cost was around €7 per adult and €5 for a child. No queue straight in, down a carpeted slope where a boat was... More

Worth a very quick visit when heading for Agia Efimia. Take a look and enjoy the colors of this place!

The cave, waters and opening are stunning but you don't get to spend much time here. You pay to get taken in a boat around the waters and take pictures and touch the water, it's worth doing when in Kefalonia though if you have the time.

Amazing place. Long wait for short boat trip (10mins). Very busy left wondering if it would have been longer if not as busy. But daughters 17,15,12 got some nice photos for social media!!
