    Beautiful caves
    Beautiful cave with lots of interesting formations to look at. A little slippy pathway so be careful when walking down to the caves. We didn’t spend a huge amount of time here as once you’ve walked around it takes about 20mins although you can spend as much time as you like there.

    A lovely experience
    Visiting Greece during a heatwave was not the best fun we've ever had but definitely made us appreciate the cool 18degrees temperature down there! I read many reviews before visiting and was doubtful about going ahead as myself and 2 of my children only had flip flops on. However, if you like me are reading these reviews and feeling unsure I just wanted to come on and advise that it is not as slippery as I thought it would be at all. The stairs are mostly carpeted if you stay on these pieces you will be fine. When you get down to the first section/viewing area there isn't carpet but it didnt feel slippery underneath just go slow and be careful when you step.. As mentioned there is a bit where you can stop and view the caves from and I have included photos showing this.. I didn't go any further than this as my 2 youngest children weren't keen on continuing and were desperate to go to the swimming pool. My other child and husband did carry on - they said it actually wasn't much further down than where we'd stopped so we should have continued but they said it was well worth the extra steps. Be warned there are a lot of steps but you can stop for a breather (well needed by me!) and should be ok for anyone able bodied enough. When buying tickets make sure to buy the combination tickets for here and the Melissani Cave (if you're planning on doing both) as it is more cost effective. They are both very close to each other and if you have hired a car like we did I would say it definitely makes sense to do both! When else will you get a chance to view caves like this where nature has created beautiful stalactites and stalagmite? There is a free swimming pool on site and the toilets are clean and sufficient enough to change in - we were really glad of this during the heatwave and were lucky enough to have the pool to ourselves which was even better. Had a lovely pizza poolside from the cafe too. Would I recommend a visit? - yes, definitely!

    Huge!
    Well worth a visit. It is huge inside and the Stalactites and Stalagmites are amazing. I'm 70 and had no problems with the steps. There is carpet over the bulk of them so not as slippery as you might have been led to believe from some of the comments. You do need to wear good footwear though. Good cafe and souvenir shop when you've finished.

    Worth the short but steep climb.
    Such a stunning cave system, the sheer size of the caverns is breath taking, and the formations also very impressive It’s a shame there isn’t a guided tour which would prevent people touching the stalagmites and stalactites, which should still be growing but with tourists touching them this will slow things down. The steps down are quite steep, but it’s the steady climb back up into the hot air which is the real killer. Still worth it though!!

    Deep cave
    Interesting place to spend an hour. Quite a large cavern containing stalagmites and stalactites, about 80 steps below ground. It’s well lit, and one sees bats in the cavern also.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Super spot in Kefalonia. We were there on a shore excursion. Neat cave. The climb out was quite a climb. But it was definitly worth it.

Great visit, slightly pricey though! There is parking available and two cafes at the location, as well as a gift shop. Steps down to the cave are steep, so wear suitable shoes.

A must see, it doesn't disappoint, didn't wait in line for long despite the people there. Get a ticket for €10 and you also get an entry to the Melissani cave.

Stalagmites and stalactites, so many on a variation. Large cave and we spent some time here admiring it. Good footwear required as can be a bit slippy and wet (you are in a cave after all).

Went here as part of a couch trip - surprisingly large and some excellent examples of stalectites and stalegmites, but do wear decent footwar with some grip on it as the caves are quite damp - the stalegmite are still dripping a fair bit so the steps down are quite damp and slippery...
