Blue Grotto

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

We went with Antonis. He is meticulous with his boat so you know you are safe. We went first thing in the morning before the sea got too rough and drove right into the cave! What an experience! Electric blue water! Beautiful. We were dropped off on St George's on the way back which made a great day. Thank you Antonis.

Saint George Beach

Reviewed By Heather C

Great for swimming and snorkelling. Or simply lying under lovely blue sun umbrellas. Bring your towel and sunscreen since even reluctant swimmers won't be able to resist a dip. Many rocks to stand on if you're not a good swimmer. Two ladders for easy in and out. Terrific restaurant which was a lovely surprise. Try the dill gozeme. We were addicted to them. Water taxis in and out up to about 5pm. Or you can prearrange pick up time.

Castle of the Knights of St. John

Reviewed By Neatesy

It's a wonderful thing to do, walk to the top and see the old castle with its little gun ports and viewing gaps..the stairs up are old, but secure and definitely worth the effort up. The view from top gives a lovely advantage point from a different angle of the island .. Bring your camera, you won't be sorry

Popular Art Museum - Old Mosque

Reviewed By fraserrobertson - Edinburgh Scotland

Worth visiting to learn about the history of the island. The staff (singular) is very helpful, and they show a short film at midday which is really interesting.

Lycian Tomb

Reviewed By TandS-W - Northamptonshire

You have to walk left from harbour, past old mosque and towards castle, then see sign for 4th century BC tomb. Steps are steep and some rubble needed clearing away on our visit, but worth taking slow and steady to get there, able to enter the tomb and see ledges for internment.
From that height able to see turtles feeding and frolicking in the sea channel between nearby Islands.
