Boat excursions

The sea caves are about one and a half hour away from the beach of Chorefto and they are accessible by boat. The landscape that you will meet is of indescribable beauty and you will get enthusiastic about its deep blue waters and its majesty.

The caves are located between the part of the beach called “Venetiotiki” and the old glebe of St Nicolas Flamouriou. They were ancient ovens near the sea, where, according to Herodotus, the largest part of Xerxis’ fleet was destroyed in 480 BCE. According to mythology the caves were Poseidon’s base and it is said that the exotic atmosphere of the area was the main reason why Nereid Thetis fell in love with Pileas.

The largest cave is called “Bishop’s cave” because it was often visited by Metropolitan Bishop Gregorios before 1905. Exactly above the caves there are remains of the old medieval castle that gave the name of Palaiokastro (old castle) to another area. The sea caves are the object of admiration of thousands of visitors every summer and they impress even the most demanding person! If you are lucky you may be able to see dolphins or monachus-monachus seals, which can find a shelter there, as they do along the coasts of the island of Alonnisos.
