The caves are amazing and well worth the two hour drive from Monemvasia where we are staying. We arrived at 11am and had no trouble getting tickets straight away with no queue. We did the full tour which includes a boat ride and then a...More

This is an amazing cave. It was a very nice experience to go down, get in the boat and sail through the cave. Truly extraordinary experience. If you get to Mani you have to go to Diros Caves.

We could only visit a very small portion of the caves by water because of the sea level. This was definitely not the best part. I advise you to call ahead of time to make sure that you can access the whole cave before you...More

Beautifully situated along the coast just south of Areópoli. First part of the track you go by boat. The guides do speak some English (though I read otherwise in some reviews). Next you go by foot. Go in the morning to avoid crowds.

I am not sure. However, i don’t think its safe for the dog because the distance passed in water is lengthy.
