Blue Grotto, Anacapri

3.1
#3 of 7 in Nature in Island of Capri
Explore the illuminated blue waters in the cavern of Blue Grotto. This cave on the island of Capri stretches 60 m (196 ft) into the cliffside. The intense blue coloring comes from the light conditions specific to the narrow cavern. Take a small rowboat through the entrance of the cave to witness the glowing water. Well-known for its acoustics, you can listen to the boat workers singing their favorite opera pieces, adding to the cave's atmosphere.

  • On our day tour of Capri we found out that a visit to the Blue Grotto was included in our packaged tour. This attraction is in high demand - so apparently the line up for it could be for hours. And it...  more »
  • I feel like I've lost 14 degrees to see nothing at all. After entering a dark hose we immediately came out through another dark hose. No stopping. Not even given the blue color we're talking about. And the rower dared to ask us for a tip of 20 euros refused of course. Reading a previous review, I understand what happened: before going down to the boat I was asked 2 times that it was my nationality, which surprised me. But I believe that the French are entitled to a special diet because they do not tip: express visit, no comments, no chants. And so no tip.

  • It was fun and all but the cost vs reward isn’t worth it. 5 mins in a dark cave for at least 14 euros, on top of the cost of taking buses or a boat or taxi or LONG hike. I would not recommend it for the difficulty and price.
  • 20 min each way (17 euros). More than 1 hour wating on the boat. 3 min inside Blue Grotto (additional 14 euros for entrance fee). Plus tip for row boat. It looked cool but lots of wasting time.
