Off the beaten track: Kefalonia Caves

Along with its stunning beaches, fantastic weather and natural beauty, Kefalonia has a couple of hidden gems that really stand out. Some of our favourites include the natural splendour of the island’s caves.

The Cave of Melissani is of unique beauty and is best explored by boat. The cave appears to be in the sun’s direct spotlight, thanks to the gaping hole in the top that allows rays to pour in, flooding the cavern with a soft blueish light.

The Cave of Drogaratis is a 150 million year-old cave featuring red stalactites and stalagmites. However the highlight of the cave is a hall named “Sala of Apotheosis”, thanks to its perfect acoustics. Filled with concerts and shows, this is an unmissable treat when you’re next on Kefalonia.
