Gaze upon the turquoise waters of The Grotto, a secluded sea cave carved out of the rocky cliffs over thousands of years. A short hike is required to reach the grotto--those with a fear of heights should take caution, as you'll need to climb down a 12 m (40 ft) natural rock chimney to access it. From above, enjoy the views of the rocky cliffs and the ocean beyond, while sunlight from outside reveals a brilliant underwater tunnel. You can snorkel in the pristine setting, and use the opportunity to capture some brilliant photographs. Make The Grotto a centerpiece of your Tobermory vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Tobermory online trip maker.

Love the place. Clean air and clear water. Very soothing place. I wish people would talk instead of shouting and screaming when they are in large groups. Worth going to see the sunset on a clear day.
Clear, blue water. Great place to relax. Recommend going to Lions Head as well!
