This grotto and the color of the water is nice,with strong sunlight shining in from 2 different directions, one in front and on from the side. There where some little dark fishes but you have to watch out if you are snorkeling. Boats are coming in all the time and its crowded so I had to give up snorkeling to... More

Had a private trip over to the grotto, as well as the surrounding area. Friendly guy who owned his own speedboat. Excellent

It was a truly incredible experience, even though we only got to stay there for 10 minutes because of all the boat tours that kept coming and coming. It's a bit crowded for swimming since the boats enter the cave, leave the people and wait for them over there. There were 2 boats when we arrived, and another one came... More

If you have seen many caves before this is just another cave not a big deal. It was definitely very nice but not something super extraordinary. Again, I am saying that because I have seen other ( not bragging) just being realistic. It's located in one of the most beautiful coastlines I have seen. The speed boat ride is just... More

Unique experience, swimming in the incredible colored water of the cave. Yet the downside - as it is a major tourist attrection, it gets crowded very fast, and you get thos really "industrial" feeling. As many boats are entering the cave, everybody's in a hurry.

Well worth a visit to the "blue cave" as it is known locally. The water is crystal clear and nature creates this amazing blue colour. We went as part of a boat trip with family. Our boat was too bit to get in the cave so we just jumped off and swam in. It is a bit crazy with boats... More

We caught the San Tropez boat from Zanic. This cost just 4Euros each and took less than half an hour to get to the grotto. It was calm sea all the way there and back. When we arrived we dived off the side of the boat. There was lots of time for swimming in the cave. For some of the... More

Its name comes from the fact that, on clear days, the water color is reflected on cave walls. I did not liked that in the boat ware to much passengers more than is comfortable, and they compete among themselves to see which reach there first. Landscape itself is gorgeous, worth seeing.

A must see! The water is so amazingly clear with a beautiful aqua colour. The caves are fun to traverse and swim in. A real exotic treat. A must for pictures and memories eternal.
