The Biggest sea cave in the world, a fantastic swimming spot with a small beach inside the cave and crystal clear waters.

St. John church

The Holy Temple of Saint John the Baptist is part of an old monastery built on a pebble beach west of the island. It no longer has excellent murals or architecture to display, but it has a long history since 1477.

Cyclops's Cave

The cave of the Cyclops, at the bay of Kalopoulos, above the Spilia port, at the height of 50m above sea level, is one of the three potential caves in Greece to verify the well-known Homeric myth. The tradition states that Cyclops Polyphemus used it as a sheep shed.

Full Moon Swimming

The summer moons are bright, take your swimsuit and try a night swimming. You will see the sea turn sparkling silver, full of tiny stars around you. a truly unique experience.

Fish feeding 

Take some bread and get to Fanari beach early, around 8-9 AM. Stand in the middle of the beach, depth up to the waist, and start throwing tiny pieces of bread one by one. Soon, you will be surrounded by hundreds of small fishes; it's a unique opportunity for small kids to familiarize themselves and explore what's under the water.
