Ramla Bay (Beach)
Calypso's cave (Point of Interest)
Just above Ramla beach is a cave reputed to be where Calypso kept Odysseus as a sex slave for 10 years.
The cave is interesting, but I would have picked a more comfortable environment for a love nest :-)
We wandered from here into the pretty town of Xaghra and then ended up walking miles down the hill to the main road to catch the bus back to the marina.
