The cave and the whole experience is great but €7 entry per adult us way too much for such a short stay. 10-15 minutes and can get overcrowded by boats. It would be worth to pay more only if you will have it for yourself...More

Visit these caves. They are not to be missed. Had very happy oarsman. Don't know how he managed to 🚣 us all. Make sure you gave a 📸.

A beautiful place to visit. Very magical, serene and colourful. The boatmen are very good, telling the story of the cave as they row you around inside it. Do tip your boatman afterwards!

Hey we booked our private car but you can go to a travel shop and can choose a trip for a day which will take you to the most of the places and yess then they will pick you from your hotel,, hope it's helpful 😜👍
What are the hours and is it closed on Sunday? Just want to make sure if I go that it is open.

Of course it is open on Sunday.... I don't know the hours.... But the best time to get there is at 12:00.... When the sun is in the centre of the cave.... You will remember me....

Can't add anything more than previous response. Enjoy your time there if you go. If you do visit I would go first thing in the morning so that it's not so crowded especially if you are going in high season. Far better... More
