Cave of Smeraldo, Positano

(1.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Cave of Smeraldo is known for the iridescent emerald light that covers the walls of the cave. A combination of geological events creates the captivating effect. The only direct opening to outside light is beneath the water. When daylight shines through, the green color appears on the cave walls. You can easily reach the cave via car by taking the ss163 highway from Capri. A small fee provides access to the cave via elevator, while a rowboat manned by a singing tour guide will take you into the grotto's interior.

  • Day trip to the island of Capri and it was a full bustle. Waiting for more than an hour by boat to order could be entered into the cave. We decide not to enter the other caves. Water color, transparency, and the other of refraction. Enter any or all the time, took a boat to go the route.

  • Uninspiring. Not worth the effort. Pushy oarsman. I have seen much better elsewhere.
  • Unimpressive, queues, 5 euro entrance fee not worth the effort.
  • Really small, not worth the effort and money, nothing of interest.
  • Really interesting. Only do if you are in the area and have time. Don't believe the rubbish about a stone under the water being anything other than a stone ;-)
  • 5min tour...really not that amazing. May as wel tick it off the bucket list if you in the area thiugh
