Swim into the depths of Thunderball Grotto and discover what attracted Hollywood to this spot (bringing James Bond here in 1965), lending the rock formation its name. This cavernous beauty adopts the features of an aquatic cathedral, a shimmering limestone dome roof full of naturally formed holes allow the sun to beam through and illuminate the crystal clear waters below.
