This impressive natural wonder is one of the main attractions on the beautiful resort island.On the outside the cave is surrounded by the forest and on the inside a magnificent site opens: a rocky cave filled with crystal clear water.In Greek mythology the site is known as the Cave of the Nymphs.

The unspoiled beauty of the place is something that you admire. The whole boat guide is a unique experience for all ages. Value for money.

Worth a trip, dont do it as part of a tour though as it lasts about 20mins. Paid 6 euros each I think and its probably worth 3 euros each in reality.
