Typical geological formations at the northern tip of Zakynthos have formed the famous Blue Caves, one of the most prominent sights of the island. They are only visited by boat and are a pole of attraction for thousands of tourists every year. The distinctive element of the Blue Caves is that they reflect the vibrating and striking blue colour of the waters in them, which at the same time capture and reflect the shine of the limpid sky reflected on their surface. This succession of bright reflection creates an almost magical atmosphere inside the caves.
