We drove from Monemvasia to Kastania. It’s an amazing experience. A truly unique cave and an amazing tour guide. After visiting the cave you can swim nearby and make a day out of it. Totally worth it.

Well worth the drive up some very steep hills to visit this. The cave is visually stunning with some incredible formations of both Stalactites & Stalagmites in various brown reddish orange colours. The guide is well informed and willing to answer any questions posed.

One of the best caves I have visited (and I’ve visited some). Well worth the drive, because also the road to the cave is very scenic. Try visiting in the afternoon and maybe you will catch the sunset upon your way back (decent to Neapoli)....More
