It is definitely one of Greece's foremost natural wonders! And the surrounding area is simply amazing. I'd combine a trip there to a swim at Marmari, about a 20 min drive away

A long wait to get into the caves and get tickets. The caves are very beautiful but narrow at certain points.A boat ride takes about 20 minutes. Worth visiting

Stunning how Mother Nature works her magic at times! Beautiful colours, crystal clear water which makes for some amazing reflections of the stalactites. Cool relief on a hot say too. Go early or you may have to wait a while for your boat ride

You can just visit the cave. Early is best as it gets busy later in the day
