Cave of Smeraldo, Positano

1.0
#1 of 7 in Nature in Amalfi Coast
Geologic Formation Cave
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.
