Blue cave is beautiful but crowded, as there were a lot snorkelers and discover scuba divers on the surface on the way in. I am glad that I scuba dived to the blue cave as the blue cave view better deeper in the water

Went with wife and kids (6 and 9) on guided tour. We all had a blast. The guide held a kick-board that the kids hung on to. We wore life jackets (good) and wet suits (not sure why, maybe because of jellyfish?). The cave itself was beautiful but seeing the fish on the way there and back was great too.... More

Crystal clear water. Should find a coach even you are good swimmer. It is a safe place but you need a guide to show you the blue light. Many fishes...a bit crowded for viewing the blue light inside the cave. Anyway, worth trying experience!

Experienced divers may find it too common. For me as a rookie snorkeler, it is gorgeous. All my friends felt this was the best experience in our trip. The sea was deeper with cliffs. Full of carols and fishes. Very clean water. Good service. Even provide goggles with short sightedness. Good instructor with good english level. Must go event. The... More

nice to be in the water and snorkle...but too many others in the area doing the same and the cave suffered a human traffic jam!

must go place in Okinawa. Blue cave in Italy & Okinawa is the only pure natural blue cave in the world, not aritificial at all. Book at Ryokyu village for only $2980YEN per person with everything inclusive. If you want to rent a waterproof camera, only extra $1000yen. The guide only brings me and my sis and very caring throughout... More

Its best to get their early morning before the masses if you really want to go. Its not that impressive though. Make sure you Dive School knows you don't want the discovery dive, it is very restrictive if you some diving experience.

I've been there both snorkeling and diving, it's a stunning place to go to. When snorkeling, you can go down the stairs and then continue along the rocks if the waves are not strong. Then you can enter the cave from a hole in a rock, and swim your way back from the cave. Amazing.

I went as a diver, it was overcrowded, unimpressive, and no sea life to see. Maybe fun as a snorkeler, but other divers should go somewhere else.
