Cave of Smeraldo, Positano

(1/5 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.

  • Moving only as good as the landscape on the side of the boat. Excessive price of entrance of the cave to what there is to see.

  • Small but beautiful. Don't expect a long cave it is only one chamber but the light in the water is truly beautiful and worth entering.  more »
  • 5 minutes by boat in a tiny cave without interest. The guide tells a little anything, jokingly, which gives a nice side but also the impression of being taken for pigeons (which we were). 20 euros for 4 (children pay as adults) + 3 euros for parking (for 10 minutes in total) to park on a site of car... Therefore not recommended.
