Northeast of Leonidio in a very difficult-to-reach location lies the cave of Dionysos, requiring rope and a descent on an aerial ladder. Inhabited during Neolithic times and later on, the cave is reputed to feature conches and even pieces of figurines in its floor.

Kapsia Cave (near the village of Kapsia) may not be open to the public yet, but it is certainly one of the important caves in the country. Clay objects and human bones have been found there attesting to ancient civilizations, while the cave itself is a rainbow of colours from green and blue to yellow and red, full of stalactites and stalagmites.


Near the beach of Tigani on the coast of Tyros-Sapounakeika, there's the Cave of Lovers which can only be by a beautiful boat ride. It is also rich in colours with many stalagmites and stalactites.
