There were like 5 grottos on our private boat tour. All were different. This one had a red tint to the stone.

This is one of my favorite stops on the boat tour that circles the island. The contrast or turquoise water with a coral band in the grotto is spectacular, and I suspect unique.

A lesser known Grotto as the blue and green ones are more popular with tourists! We took a private boat and visited here..it is absolutely beautiful with rocks that are lined with red-orange colored stones!

Cobalt blue waters and red coral. Looks beautiful. Can only be reached by sea and visited by all the round the island tour boats

The whole boat trip is a wonderful experience and this particular grotto is most unusual and interesting, but you must get close.

At first I wondered what it was I was actually meant to be seeing and then I noticed the red flowers on the side when the water dipped hence its name. It's nice to see but nothing amazing. It was part of a boat tour we did of the island but wouldn't go out of my way to see it

Our boat took us around the Island to see the sites and each of the various Grottos. It had some red color from the coral/rocks but really a very small area. Glad our boat only spent a couple minutes

The red grotto is named as the coral on the rocks around is an orange/red color. It was okay too look at, but not much else. Check it out for a minute or two.
