The bright blue, turquoise waters of the Greek Islands have inspired many a postcard, but it is difficult to imagine a more beautiful spot than the Blue Caves of Zakinthos, an island with a unique landscape of steep coastal cliffs, green valleys and many gulfs and beaches.
Carved by thousands of years of erosion and changes in geology, the Blue Caves are most famous for the color of the water in the deepest sections, which glows particularly brightly in the morning hours. The reflection of the clear blue waters on the white stone walls of the caves creates an almost surreal environment that can be seen on a boat cruise of the area.
The Blue Caves are located on the northern part of Zakynthos, east of Cape Skinari. They can be reached via boat cruise.
