A small chapel hidden on a cave. There is a trail up when you exit Topolia Gorge, so you avoid stairs.It is interesting because of the cave. Chapel od very basic. Combine your visit there with a hike in the gorge or on your way...More

The drive through the gorge to the cave is very beautiful with lots of view points to stop at. The parking is on the side of the road and from here you need to walk up stone stairs for about 4 minutes. The stairs aren’t...More

While the cave has wonderful views, prepare yourself for the journey up there! We stopped off as part of our coach trip to Elafonissi beach for just half an hour. The trek up to the cave is quite tough, especially when the sun is beating...More

Well worth the walk up the steps to stretch the legs for the view of the valley below and break up the car journey but I wouldn't travel out here, especially to see it.

Where do I start. If all you want is a simple trip to the beach (as we did) please look elsewhere. We booked this trip via GS Tours located in Chania Town. We went into the shop where the two dopey assistants weren’t fully sure...More

Elafonissi itself is so great that we consider stopping here a bit waste of time, and money. Restaurant expensive, cave OK but nothing amazing, we saw much better. It could be worth if you have plenty of time.

Views from the cave, of the gorge are good. Cave itself is okay, pretty much just a cave. You need to have a reasonable level of fitness to make the ascent . There are around 250 steps. Nice place to stop off, and free admission.
