Navagio beach trip at Zakynthos is not complete without stopping at the Blue Cave. Remember to choose the right boat that can go through this Cave. It is very beautiful.

First of all it is really important to specify that the caves are accessible not only by boat. The best way to enjoy this unique place is to reach it by car till the windmills and go down the stairs. It is not difficult. Thus, you have the opportunity to stay there as much as you want, visit the caves... More

Our boat drove right into the middle of the caves and even hit the pillars while showing us the colour of the water scarily!! Good to see though.

The Blue caves are nice to visit. You can drive close and then walk down and swim around. There are tour companies that will take you there and to The Wreck for 15 euro. It is best to do it from Agios Nikolaos rather than from the side by The Wreck. Over there they only take you to The Wreck... More

The caves are quite small so choose a boat that can go inside them in order to see the coral and the light reflexion. Quite amazing colour contrast

One the best boat trips and swimming I’ve ever experienced! The landscape of the hollow rocks in combination to the electrifying blue water was an experience to remember! Don’t miss out on this boat trip!

The ocean's so blue you can even see the bottom. Amazing trip with Captain Sphiroth or that's what his name I heard people saying. There's 2 places you will stop during the trip, the first one is shipwreck & the 2nd one is blue cave after shipwreck & went back to shores. You can go swimming on shipwreck stop. It... More

If you are planning to visit Zante next year, you have to go and see the blue caves! And make sure you pick a cruise that will allow you to swim near them
