Isola Di Dino is an Island close to the beach. The water is crystal blue. Take a boat ride to see the grotto. Highly recommended for a place of scenic beauty.

Fantastic location highly recommended, get a pedals from one of the beach bars approx 10 euro and head into the Lion Cave, stunning clear blue water, loads of fish in clear view. Highly recommend taking a waterproof camera.

I cant believe a place like this is still a secret to the big crowds! Make sure you get one of the compleate tours that also go to the Blue Grotto and the Arcomagno.

If you go to Praia a Mare you have to visit Dino Island. The best way is to rent a small boat or a pedal boat (pedalo) and visit both the Lion cave (Grotta del Leone) and blue cave (Grotta Azzurra). Diving in the Blue...More
