CORFU GROTTO CAVES BOAT TOUR

A very enjoyable excursion from Paleokastritsa beach is via small boat to explore the coastline. Each boat holds between 6 to 8 people and the cost for the half hour trip is 9 euros per person.

Our guide was a jovial, friendly man who made sure everyone had time to take pictures and although his German was better than his English, I had no trouble understanding his commentary. The rock formations along the coast are home to many small caves and grottos and the boat was small enough that we could go into a few of them. One of the caves was called Nausica Cave, named after the daughter of the King of the Phaeacians who supposedly found legendary hero Odysseus and nursed him back to health. The walls of the cave near the waterline are a deep wine color - partly due to the lack of sun and the seaweed. Another cave called Blue Eye has a patch of incredibly blue water that is meant to resemble an eye.

We passed by Monkey Face Hill where an outcropping of rock closely resembles the side profile of an ape. Crossing water that was at times 40 feet deep, we could see the Monastery of Panagia Theotokos perched on the hill above us and in the distance, Bella Vista hill with its cluster of houses and the remains of a 12th century fort above them.

Although the boats use gasoline, the water is incredibly clear and we could see small schools of tiny silvery fish darting along as we came back to the dock.

The boats run continuously every day and itís a nice way to relax and see some of the coastline. There is no shade in the boats so you may want to take a hat because even a half hour trip on the water can cause quite a sun burn
