What's Katavothres like

Katavothres is a geographical phenomenon that occurs on Kefalonia where the sea water rushes through the rocks at the shore and disappears underground only to resurface at the Melissani Lake cave on the other side of the island approximately 15 kilometres away.

This unusual event was discovered in 1963 when some purple dye was added to the water and then appeared in the caves 2 weeks later.

Getting to Katavothres is simple as it’s on the main coastal road that leads round the tip of the Argostoli peninsular, this is the same road that goes past St Theodoroi Lighthouse so it’s easy to visit both in one trip.

Although there isn’t a great deal to see or do at Katavothres it is a nice, peaceful place to be and if you’re looking for somewhere to go for a romantic evening meal then why not make the trip to Katavothres, have a look round and have something to eat in the local restaurant whilst taking in the spectacular views of the area.
