The Sea Caves of Cape Palinuro are the main attraction of the area. You can visit with boats leaving from the harbor of Palinuro. The tour includes the famous Blue Grotto, the Cave of Blood, the Sulfur Grotto and the Cave of the Monks. Finally, will be a stop at the Bay of Good Sleep for a refreshing swim in the clear waters of the bay.

The tour provider will happily take you on a trip to the blue grotto at 9am, but the guide will tell you that the blue light effect is much more spectacular in the afternoon when the opening in the rocks gets direct sunlight.

We went with Allesandro's. Great guide who spoke excellent English. Sun loungers are included in the price. Only went into one grotto as the others were closed but you get a good impression from the area. Clear water. Definitely worth it.
