Emerald Grotto (Grotta di Smeraldo), Conca dei Marini

1.1
#6 of 7 in Nature in Amalfi Coast
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.

    Boat trip from Amalfi, panoramic and relaxing, guided by the friendly captain who explains the history of the discovery, the particularities of the various stalagmites and the rain of emeralds which are splashing water caused by the oar of the raft where we are seated and the underwater crib ... see!
