“Fun daytrip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

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 in the Grotto and swim. Fun!

Pretty place, quite cheap to get to and takes most of the day.

“Great swim - fast and fun sailing trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

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 and with a price of EUR 60 we decided the speedboat to be great.

“15 mins on boat from Miriste beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“Beauty in blue...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

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 wonder. It was beautiful but due to the numerous amounts of boats that visit it, the grotto smelled like gasoline. The other caverns nearby were better to swim in since most tour boats skip them. I highly suggest renting a boat since you would be able to view all the spots you like.
