Melissani Cave, Kefalonia, Greece

Melissani Cave, Kefalonia, Greece. Melissani Lake is covered by the cave on the Kefalonia island and attracts many tourists, especially those on a luxury sailing holiday. 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. It has two big halls and an island in the middle. One of the halls opens on the surface and lets the light in, which makes the water so clear it seems that the boats are gliding through the air.

Why to go there?

An impressive natural wonder is one of the main attractions on the beautiful resort island.

When to go there?

The best time to visit the cave is in the middle of the sunny day. However, it is said that the morning and evening visits have their own advantages.

How to get there?

Kefalonia is on the Ionian Coast sailing voyage with Med Sailing Holidays. The 7 day greek island holiday itinerary can be found here, where you can also book your Greek Islands sailing holiday.
