What's Blue Caves like

The Blue Caves lie on the northern tip of Zakynthos island, just below Skinari Lighthouse. The blue caves are over 35km from the islands capital which usually takes about an hour to drive.

The caves were discovered in 1897 by Antonio Komouto and they welcome thousands of visitors every year, venture inside these rocky crags for incredible swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving in the vibrant, turquoise waters.

Once inside the caves you’ll see the sun light reflecting of the Ionian sea and glistening back of the white cave walls, this is where the name Blue Caves comes from.

The town of Volimes makes a good base if you’d like to visit the caves multiple times, but for most tourists these legendary caverns are a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a beach on Zakynthos that doesn’t offer boat tours to the Blue Caves, just make sure the one you go with has the option to go inside the caves as some boats are too big and stop outside.

You don’t just have to arrive by boat, there are steps down from the Potamitis Windmill where you can get into the sea and have a swim around, just take care and keep an eye on the weaker swimmers in your group.

With such convenient options for visiting this top Greek island attraction, you’d be crazy to miss it.
