Blue Grotto

Marine cave on Capri island known for its electric blue water, illuminated by sunlight passing through an underwater cavity.

Tips from the community

If there was an Olympics for the World’s Most Ridiculously Blue Waters, Italy would steal the show with the Blue Grotto and bring home the victory. Sunlight pokes through an underwater cavity in this sea cave, illuminating the blue waters from below, which casts a glowy blue color throughout the entire area. It’s a little bit like being in a fancy resort pool at night, except you’re off the coast of Capri and surrounded by towering rock formations. 10/10 recommend pairing it with a heaping pile of pomodoro pasta dusted in parmesan afterwards.

Of the coast of Capri lies this hidden gem location, The Blue Grotto glows in mystical hues of turquoise. This enchanting effect of blue mirroring throughout the cave is thanks to the frequent sunlight reflecting against the pigmented water.
