Melissani Cave, Greece
Melissani Cave is located on the island of Kefalonia, Greece. In ancient Greek mythology, this cave was the bathing place of nymphs, and it’s easy to see why. Heading past the overhanging mouth of a cave on a small boat leads you to the opening, which provides an amazing view of both the sky and forest surrounding the cave, as well as the clear blue water underneath. Archaeological digs within the 3.5 kilometer cave have also uncovered an ancient sanctuary dedicated to the god Pan, complete with clay statuettes and plates depicting women and girls dancing in the cave.
