Skinaris Cape, which is found at the northernmost tip of Zakynthos has some breathtaking, panoramic views, here you can witness both the calm waters of the east and the windy waters of the west. The blue caves, which were discovered back in 1897 are found here underneath Skinari Cape. These caves really have to be seen to be believed, showing a range of blue hues on the white rocks caused by reflections from the sea. This area is also popular for snorkeling due to the wide range of marine life living there and any snorkeler will look remarkably like a Smurf - thanks to the reflections of the cave it will appear that they have blue skin!
