Considered to be one of the most beautiful dive sites of the Cape Gkreko area, this site takes its name from the cave above that legend tells was the hideout of the mythical one-eyed Cyclops. Rather, it is a magnificent, half-submerged grotto with a stunning topography of huge boulders, rocks, seagrass and sand – including a sandy, uphill path between meadows of Posidonia seagrass.

The versatility of the site makes it popular as it offers each diving level a different experience. It is ideal as a practise site for mapping, night diving, navigation and deep dives, as well as snorkelling. As such, both beginners and technical divers will enjoy exploring the interesting underwater landscape and the cliff’s marine life, including bream, grouper, lionfish, moray eels, nudibranch, sea urchins and starfish, among other species.
