Emerald Grotto (Grotta di Smeraldo), Conca dei Marini

(320+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Named for the color reflected in the waters within, Emerald Grotto (Grotta di Smeraldo) is a small cave partly filled with seawater. Sunlight is refracted through the water, which gives the cave its ethereal emerald glow. This is similar to the better-known, and more impressive, Blue Grotto on the nearby island of Capri. With no natural opening above the waterline, the cave wasn't discovered until 1932. Take the elevator down into the cave, then board a small boat to tour the grotto.

  • The Emerald sea cave, near Amalfi, reachable by elevator from the coastal road, with its stalactites from the most varied shapes, the stalagmites on the bottom lens, created when the seabed was dry, the incredible underwater Nativity, emerald green waters, which smote with art by oar of the boatman, create a sparkling turquoise blue waterfall-drip, has nothing to envy to the most famous Blue Grotto. Absolutely worth visiting.

  • I thought something better ... small and charming but nothing great. The color of the sea is fantastic.
