In a medium-sized open cave hidden inside the high cliffs overlooking Ramla Bay on the Western side lies what is known as the Cave of Calypso. According to Homer’s Odyssey, Calypso was a water fairy who could not leave her habitat – the island of Ogygia.
After losing his ship and his comrades, the King of Ithaca and great hero Ulysses was blown on the shores of the island and found by Calypso, who fell in love with him. Ulysses remained in Calypso’s cave for seven years, before being allowed to sail back home to his wife.
However, Calypso was still in love with him, and legend says that she’s still waiting for him on her island.
