The Blue Caves are located in the north of Zante (Zakynthos) and are one of the best known sights on the island.
The unusual caves were discovered in 1897, with the largest cave being called Blue Grotto. In order to visit them you can hire a boat, or take a boat trip.
The nearest point to the caves to take a boat from is the harbour of St.Nikolaos, near Volimes, but trips depart from many other points on the island.
The colours of the caves are spectacular and have to be seen to be believed. The area is also ideal for snorkeling.
