1a (1).tiff

The cave's name comes from the historic submarine "Papanikolis", who, according to the legends, used to use the cave as a refuge base
during World War II.

Thanks to its size, the cave of Papanikolis is considered as the
Largest sea cave in the world.
The cave's entrance leads to a 120-meter tunnel, which is 60 meters wide and tapering to 23 meters as you advance.

Every year, it attracts visitors who admire the magnificence of its natural beauty. You can reach the cave only from
the sea.

The water inside the cave is so crystal clear that you can see the sea's bottom and beautiful stalactites hanging on the roof. There is also a small beach inside the cave, carefully preserved.

It is definitely one of the most impressive sites you can swim in the world.
