The must-see attraction on Capri is the magical Blue Grotto, where visitors take a boat ride through a natural cavern that is filled with an ethereal and eerie light reflecting on the (very blue) water.

We chartered a boat in Sorrento to take us to Capri. At our request, we were taken to the Blue Grotto. The wait for our 3 minutes in the grotto was unreasonably long. Hard to justify the wait and the hefty fee. I would rather...More

This is a bucket list must do! I recommend you go with a guide. They skip you ahead of the line. We only waited approximately 15 minutes. The folks that paid for private boat rides had much longer waits.

I love the different views about this place, but the seas were rough the day we were there and we took a bus from the town of Anna Capri to the blue grotto. You can actually jump in from the cliffs, they have a stainless...More

Took us about two hours to see what's inside of the cave but it was worth the wait. The paddlers makes it even more Romantic once inside. Must visit!

Great swim! The color of the water is absolutely incredible and it is definitely a must see. Go there swimming

It is an amazing and thrilling experinece, it is dependant on the tides and the boats have special drivers to take you in. After 6pm it is open for swimming and no charge, remember to bring your goggles! This would be for experienced swimmers.

Due to the high tides we could not enter the Blue Grotto. It looks like only small boats could enter it or you may have to swim into the cave.

No company: A guy walked up to us, offering to take us to the grotto on his motorboat for 20 euros each (vs. 18 each for the big commercial boats). I don't think he even gave us his name. I was apprehensive that it was a... More

Tortuga cafe is not a full restaurant. But it does the trick. Head back to Anacapri for better selection.
