There are two most known and important caves that you will be visiting. The first one is called Nausica Cave, named after the daughter of the King of the Phaeacians. It is said that she found in there Odysseus and nursed him back to health. The second most worthseeing one is called Blue Eye due to a patch of incredibly blue water which resembles an eye.
Above the main coast on a hillside full of wild trees and olive trees facing the deep blue sea stand the Monastery of Theotokos. The Monastery was built around 12th century and inside in one of the cells a museum has been founded with Byzantine and post Byzantine icons. Int the main courtyard of the monastery there is also an old well where you can throw a coin and make a a wish which with the blessings of Virgin Mary Theotokos it will probably come true.
