Interesting trip into the Blue Cave, into which the boat barely fits through the entrance. The blue wasn't that stunning, perhaps the angle of the sun was wrong! Great swimming though (I'll be honest, my first swim off a boat in deep water).

“Amazing Natural Wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

We caught the Tourist Ship Alexandra, one of the many boats, taking tourists from Zanjiche beach to the Blue Grotto for 3 Euros. It was about a 20 minute boat ride along the coast. The boat squeezed into the cave from where jumped off and swam inside the cave. The light in the cave caused it to be an amazing bright blue colour. There were fish to see and people scuba diving at the bottom. The cave was exceptional deep. Afterwards we went round to the other side of the cave for some swimming in the open sea. Different boat companies offer different options and some other people from our hotel had the opportunity to explore a derelict castle instead of the sea swimming.
I'd recommend brining your swimming kit, a snorkel mask and pipe and a cool drink.
One cautionary note - I swallowed quite a bit of salty seawater and then was sick off the side of the boat on the way back!
