The composition of Kalymnos' rocks has contributed to the creation of numerous caves. Many of those present, apart from geological interest archaeological interest as well, as they were inhabited in the past or were used as places of worship.

At a distance of 2 kilometres southwest of Vothinoi one can visit the Kefala's cave, the most impressive and beautiful cave on the entire island of Kalymnos, its extend is 1000 square metres, with six inner chambers. In Kefala's cave you will be impressed by the imposing, 103 meters long, hallway with the huge stalactites and stalagmites. You will also be able to see traces of the worship of Zeus, which is the reason why the cave bears the alternative name 'Cave of Zeus'.

You can go there by boat or along the provincial road from Pothia (note that this road later on becomes a dirt road). Once you reach the top of the hill where the road ends, and after you have passed in front of St. Catherine's Monastery, will need to follow the signs marked on the rocks in order to reach the cave.
