CLOSED (July 2020) due to Covid, but no information until you arrive at the cave entrance. Every few minutes new would-be visitors arrive, only to be frustrated. It would be so easy for the local mayor to post signs at the port and at the road crossing towards the cave informing about the closure. Countless people would save the ride of 10+10km and an hour of their time. The cave itself is a beautiful place to visit, I know if from earlier visits.

Easy access by car to the entrance. Once inside (long way down to the bottom of the cave) you should sure that you will be able to climb back! Some training is required, and please do not go on flip- flops. Very nice interior, spectacular chambers...and some interesting stories about pirates and their treasures.

Last visited these caves 13 years ago and really enjoyed the visit. However, this time there were significant sections of stairs with no light at all and none of the lights “in” the steps worked anymore. Needs some urgent maintenance before someone goes tumbling! Could also do with some info about the history of the place.

Interesting to see the caves deep in the mountain, worth a trip. The stalactites and stalagmites are amazing. Cool inside the caves, 400 steps down and back up but relatively easy if you take your time. Tip - take a water bottle

Decided to take in this site and was glad we did. Beautiful rock formations. Very humid down there but if you can handle it than it’s worth it. Stairs were easy, but many of them. Well lit up so you always felt safe when walking.
I think it’s a must see!

My husband and I ventured over to Antiparos from Paros to see the cave and we're so glad we did. We had rented a car in Paros so we took it over on the ferry. The cave is a bit far from the main port so we wouldn't have been able to walk there, plus you drive up quite high to reach the cave. It was an amazing view from outside the cave and then you head in and it's another amazing view. I'm not sure how many steps, or how far down we went, but it was a really cool experience. They gave us a brochure when we paid our 5 Euros each to enter the cave but we decided to make our way down and look at the brochure later. There were points to stop along the way and look around and just admire where you were, which was really cool. I'm glad we took the time to explore this area - it was a very cool experience!

Cave looks surrendered and abandoned.
Vandalism since the period of Turkish occupation but also modern days by tourists is obvious all around the cave.
Anyway a visit is necessary during your visit in the island .

Last entrance is at 3:30pm. Arrived 3:32pm because helped a stranger and the person working the gate saw me and my friends helping the random stranger. Tells us rudely that they are closed and that last entry was at 3:30. As she is telling me this I see 3 people go down to the caves. My friend points this out to her and she pretty much says it is after 3:30 and we can’t go. She doesn’t care the other people just went down after 3:30. She states she doesn’t care we missed the time by couple of minutes because a stranger ask us for help and she witnessed us helping them carry stuff to the cave.

So lesson learn for this location is don’t help strangers and just go and make the time so that you can make the entrance time!!!

However, it’s is always nice to help a random stranger even if the person who work at the gate is a total jerk.

We rented a car and took the ferry from Pounda on Paros (8 Euro for car + 2 adults each way) to see this cave. I admit I don't have a lot of cave experience, but thought this was quite interesting and definitely worth the trip and 5 Euro entrance fee. The view down and back up as you descend 411 stairs and 100 meters is fascinating and the recording playing throughout (in Greek and English) provided a nice historical context of the cave. I'm fairly fit and there were plenty of places to stop and take a break to appreciate the surroundings if needed.
