Simply emerald

You can't go in but the intense blue colour is a must. Go early in the day so you do not have to queue. You need to go on an organised trip.

Do go for a swim the water if your skipper allows. Also, the tipping culture is pretty expensive and mandatory for the skipper service. The skipper will sing some Italian songs for you while in the grotto so enjoy it. Do ask for more time inside the Grotto as they usually wind up the trip withing 5 7 minutes before... More

As beautiful as the Blue Grotto. Take a private boat to the Green Grotto and jump in to the gorgeous waters and enjoy!

Lovely place. Shame it costs a family of 5. €120 to see it, after the cost of the boat trip €75. It lasts 5 mins costs us almost €200.

It was very interesting to be able to visit the Green Grotto, to see how far we could go into the caves, and you cannot get to it from the land, the rocks are too steep.

The visit to the green grotta is usually done as a stop on the boat tours to the island. Once again, it is strongly recomended that you hire a private trip.

We swam into the Green Grotto after all the tourists were gone. it was amazing!!! The only thing you have to watch out for is rocks on the bottom so there is a chain at the beginning to pull yourself along and then drop in after the rocks. Also make sure to go at a time when the tide is... More

Skip the blue grotto. Even if it had no cover charge, it wouldn't be worth the wasted time and stress. The green grotto is way more chill and doesn't have s cover fee. You can jump out of the boat and swim through the cave/arch. Totally wins over its blue cousin, even if both were free.

Our family spent a wonderful few moments swimming near the green grotto on Capri. There was no queue unlike at the Blue Grotto. To be fair, I can't compare the two grottos as I didn't wait for the Blue, but the green was stunning! We hired a boat and the driver waited while we swam. A very special experience.

The water is beautiful when the sun reflects off of it. It is a greenish color. While to was not as stunning as the blue grotto, I am still glad we saw it. This is free so you might as well spend a color minutes admiring the water.
