A bit of an anticlimax this site. It has been cordoned off as entering is obviously quite dangerous. One has to use one's imagination in view of the cave location on a hilltop and the sandy beach below where Ulysses was shipwrecked. The path from...More

As most of the reviews point out, there is no longer any cave... a nice viewpoint, there is a mobile snackbar and toilets but no cave. Take the track down the Ramla bay for a nice walk. There are other caves such as Mixtla cave...More

The title says it all. On a good day, the views across Ramla Bay are stunning, but don't go expecting to see the cave. The cave was closed some years ago. There is a reasonable viewing area, but not much else.

10 years ago was worth a visit, sadly it has not been maintained and is no longer safe to enter. Great view of the countryside helps make up for the neglected cave.

Billed as the cave where Calypso seduced Odysseus and then kept him here for 7 years, but the cave has been shut for some years and you cannot even look from outside in. Instead, you get a congested site and an okay view across Ramla...More

The cave has been closed for a number of years due to fallen rocks. But one can enjoy great view of Ramla Bay.

A fantastic centre well run by true divers with a passion. Went for a 10 dive package with my family including a teenage son. All transfers were there on time and we didn't have to do anything except turn up. Dive sites are all planned...More

The Calypso cave is on a hill above Rambla bay. I've visited it 20 years ago so decided to repeat, as it was interesting. Unfortunately, when I got there I learnt it was closed for over three years now. It looks neglected. The only thing...More

No. You could drive to the Blue Lagoon walk and swim from there. But to dive there you would usually take a boat trip.
