Melissani Cave

Melissani Cave

Melissani Cave is about 500m from the sea, and the water level is a meter higher than sea level, and the brackish water rises from a 30m deep cave system on one side of the cave and flows silently to the other end of the cave, flowing through narrow crevices into the sea. Here the water from Katavothres on the other side of the island reappears. This was discovered by dye tracing experiments in 1959. Photo: apostolata.gr
