How about a lake, inside a cave, with forest surrounding it? Sounds good for one of the Instagrammables place in Greece, right! This natural beauty is located in Kefalonia and can be reached by boat.

At noon, the sun’s rays enter through a large hole in the roof of the cave, creating a shimmering effect on the lake’s water.
