Crystal clear waters hidden in an underground cave. Just amazing. You have a tour with a boat while the person sailing the boat explains the history of the cave.

The cave is on kefalonia one of the ionian islands, nowhere near mykonos or santorini, you would need to fly into kefalonia or get a boat from athens which i think takes 6 hours. Also there is relatively no public transport... More
