Emerald Grotto (Grotta di Smeraldo), Conca dei Marini

1.0
#4 of 6 in Things to do in Conca dei Marini
Cave Nature / Park
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.

  • Very pretty. Lovely and cool in the summer but very small. Entrance fee only 5 euros. Staff on the boats not great but worth a visit  more »
  • To see the emerald green is a place indicated; It is not always easy to find parking, but leaving something to the valet you adjust; descend walking up the elevator and taking it, you get to sea level; leaving you walk a few steps and you arrive at the cave entrance where you pay the ticket 5 euros; then you enter and there you have on a boat type moscone 70 years making seating up to 20 people; The Boatman starts his tour which is completed in 10 minutes showing the particularities of the cave and of course the emerald green water, produced by light entering from a natural opening being at sea level; suggestive also see little crib underwater.
