Sami, located on the Greek island of Kefolonia (sometimes spelt Cephalonia) boasts two magnificent geological oddities: Drogarati Cave and Melissani Lake. The short distant between the two allow tourist to visit both of the natural wonders in one day.
Lake Melissani was given its name after some unearthed artifacts discovered in 1951 and again in 1962 revealed former Minoan depictions of the nymph Melissanthi and the god Pan. A huge cavern collapsed years ago resulting in a large circular opening to the surface. Tourist who tour the lake between 11am and 1pm on a sunny day will be treated to an other worldly blue.
Three hundred years ago, the Drogarati Cave was discovered after an earthquake opened up a previously closed entrance to the cave. In 1963, the cave was opened to the public. Those who have been fortunate enough to visit are treated to the caves beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. The large, lighted hall in the cave, "Sala of Apotheosis," is 900 meters square and is often used for concerts due to its acoustics.
