A popular trip is to hire one of the Póthia-based fishing boats and visit to the cave of Kefála just west of Vlyhádhia. This is the most impressive of half a dozen caverns around the island. You have to walk thirty minutes from where the boats dock, but the vividly coloured formations repay the effort; the cave was inhabited before recorded history, and later served as a sanctuary for Zeus, who is doubtfully identified with a particularly imposing stalagmite in the largest of the six chambers.
