Terrific place for swimming but the other boats made the swim uncomfortable. Best to visit early or outside peak season

To spend some time in Herceg Novi or its surrounding during summer, and not to go to Blue cave, simply mustn't happen. Many boats can take you there, or they may take you to Zanjic (where you usually stay the whole day) , and from there are separate tours (1-1.5 hours excursion) to Blue cave. Its name tells it all,... More

...and crystal blue it is. Well worthy of a visit! And while you're there, make sure to visit the peaceful Mirista beach with its incredibly clear water. Relax, go for a swim and enjoy a delicious fish meal in their restaurant by the beach!

Take a small boat from the long pier At Herceg-Novi at 9 in the morning.. Go to Zanice beach via some small harbours. Stay on the beach (swimming shoes needed!) for an hour or two. Take the same boat to Plava Spilja. About 5 other boats will go too, all of them play music while people jump into the water... More

We decided to take our own speedboat from the harbour price EUR 100. A little too expensive but great fun sailing with a fast boat. You need a guide out there as sailing into the cave cannot be recommended without a guide. You can also take a boat with a small 5hp engine - that would take a long time... More

It's worth to take a trip to Miriste beach on Lustica Peninsula, and a rent a boat from there. Then it's only 15 minutes to the cave, and with a little bit of luck you can be there without others.

We were in Herceg Novi performing at the Suncane Skale festival and decided to stay for a week. We rented a boat from Pajo with two skippers and they took us to various beaches including the Blue Grotto. We were able to jump off the boat and swim in it. We put on our snorkeling gear and explored the underwater... More

We had a really good time going here. I did spend quite a bit of time researching how to get here as we were backpacking and planning on only stopping for the day on the way to Budva from Dubrovnik, to go out to the Blue Grotto (which the locals were calling the 'Blue Cave') Herceg-Novi was a gorgeous little...
