The cave is located in the Drepano area of Akrotiri, Chania and was discovered by a spear fisher. The entrance to the cave is at a depth of 10 meters under the sea. At the end of the tunnel divers face a one-of-a-kind sight. The cave is very large, almost 50 meters in length and 50 meters in width, with a height of almost six meters. It is full of stalactites and stalagmites. Elephant bones and other rare findings which shed light on the prehistoric past of Crete were discovered by archeologists with the aid of the Cretan Diving Center during the exploration of this underwater cave which was recently discovered.
