Part of a daily crusie from Lefkada, Papanikolis' cave played a critical role for Greece during WWII. A famous submarine was hiding there during the war to evade enemy radars and the locals were supplying the sailors during the night.
Its always nice when a sightseeing comes with a story!☺️

Stunning safe swim into this cave is an ideal stop off during a sailing holiday in the Ionian Islands. Fabulous blue clear waters packed with fish. Best around 2.00pm to get the best sun light direction.

The cave is huge, and underwater it's wonderfully colored as the algae are red and blue. In the late morning it's assaulted by the daily cruise boats, and in the afternoon the waves make it difficult to swim there. But if you get there before ten and snorkel there it's really amazing.

If you visit the cave as part of the 1 day big boat cruise , DON'T GO, unless you want to lose a day of vacation. 2.5 hours of doing something, including the lunch

everybody should visit the place, especially with Vicky II ferry. It worth it. Even if it was overcrowd it was beautiful and very relaxing at the top of the Ferry. enjoying so many blues and greens. But entering the cave was a real suprise even I was be prepared for it.
