Blue Grotto, Anacapri

2.3
#3 of 7 in Nature in Island of Capri
Explore the illuminated blue waters in the cavern of Blue Grotto. This cave on the island of Capri stretches 60 m (196 ft) into the cliffside. The intense blue coloring comes from the light conditions specific to the narrow cavern. Take a small rowboat through the entrance of the cave to witness the glowing water. Well-known for its acoustics, you can listen to the boat workers singing their favorite opera pieces, adding to the cave's atmosphere.

Where to stay in Anacapri

A less expensive alternative to Capri's expensive resorts, Anacapri offers a peaceful setting for a long vacation away from the tourist crowds. The quieter and less explored of the two towns on the island, Anacapri boasts several small hotels with private balconies offering sweeping harbor views. Stay near the compact town center to explore its narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. Surrounded by olive groves and flower gardens, the town's B&Bs offer simple but comfortable rooms, only minutes away from Capri's famous nightlife.
