7 euros for an adult- and well worth it for the gorgeous views! our boatmen din't sing ( ) but it was still a lovely visit, so picturesque I highly reccommend it!
Very simple, just a smallish lake underground, went there in the jeep last week, which we hired. We too got a singing boatman (the accoustics are better than in the shower!!!) and although the boats hold up to 14 people we were in our own boat with my sister and brother-in-law, just the four of us (& the boatman). Its naturally lit by the sky and it is bright turquois blue (no colouring in the water like they do in the fairgrounds up and down britain ha!) its a little natural wonder. Worth visiting if you have a car, we got out just in time though, as we were walking out 2 coach trips arived!! So glad we were there in that tranquil cave WITHOUT the herds of sightseers! Oh I just love Kefalonia...
Visited here with the Island tour...absolutely stunning..we had a singing boatman! Well worth the visit...colours are amazing..water really cold...but all very enjoyable.
Hi does any one know if it's possible to get married in mellisani lake?
Absolutely beautiful, well worth a visit. 10/10
Another lovely place to visit, the tour cost 7 euros each and lasts about 10 minutes but it was worth it. Incredible underground lake and fantastic stalagmites and stalactites to see. My other half said the toilets were very clean too!
went to the lake and found it very interesting you walk down a very steep tunnel and then you get on to a rowing boat.................the man in the boat was very friendly taking photos for the people on the boat, but it was a very short visit took about 8 minutes..................but it was spectacular if its a choice between the lake or the caves go to the lakes..........
Kath, the lake is below ground and the ramp is quite steep ( I can't remember if there are steps or not ) and I do remember that there's only a rope type hand rail to hold on to. It's really beautiful, but not sure if it would be OK for hubby. You have to climb into the boats. Hope this helps.
Stunning - make sure you go on a sunny day and this is entirely worth the money!
The Melissani lake is just a short ride from the resort of Sami and can be reached either on an organised coach trip or self drive if you hire a car. There is a car-park and once you have paid (5 Euro's each) there is a cafe where your husband can stay with the baby whilst you go down to the lake. Access to the lake is down a short ramp. There are 3 small row boats that take up to 6 people. They take you round the lake for approx 15 mins. When you get back your husband can then enjoy the experience. It is well worth going to the lake, it is so beautiful and you get a weird feeling when you look up at the gap left from when the ceiling of the original cave calopsed revealing the lake. Good luck and enjoy!!
it was so pretty and the man rowing the boat was hilarious and even took pictures for us.
Definitely worth seeing but not that dramatic really, quite small. Pretty reflections though, and the boatmen will give you good commentary on the history of the lake. Only 2.50 to get in as well, so really is a bargain, and only up the road from the caves. Much less dramatic than Drogarati though.
well worth a visit and the walk from sami to karavomilos along the waterfront is great.
We liked it. Although the queuing was a litle nauseous in the end it was well worth it and I wouild reccomend this by bus tour or in your car. Apart from the natural wonder what made it for us was the 'ferryman'. Broken English but full of life!
We visited in the afternoon to avoid the tour bus crowds and it was nice and quiet and the colours of the lake were still beautiful. Stunning, in fact. Look out for the water reflecting patterns onto the walls of the cave.
