About Grande Grotta:

The Grande Grotta is probably one of the most amazing sectors on Kalymnos. The big cave is visible from Massouri and features an amazing forest of huge stalactites, big tufas and long, long routes.
Approach: Don't block the bus stop. Everyone in town likely prefers that you walk here. There is adequate scooter parking available, yet I think it is for hotel guests.
Approach Time: 10
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: At Hotel Philoxenia, walk up the steep drive and go thought to NOT FORGOT to retie the gate to head up to an olive tree. Continue to follow carnes to the base of the rock for a route that is named Massila(sp?).
