In this popular cave on the coast of Capri Island, you’ll discover a stunning, brilliant blue that’s like none you’ve seen before. As you enter in a tiny rowing boat, the shimmering blue hue created by sunlight, sea water, and two cave holes will spellbind you. To avoid long lines at the entrance, it is best to visit a little early. The best time is generally between 12-2 PM. Tipping the boatman makes sure you can have a little extra time inside the Blue Grotto so you can soak in the incredible sight inside. The ticket can be purchased at the pier.

Carlsbad Cavers National Park

The amazing & unforgettable natural formations of this national park, which boasts over 100 caves, make for an amazing & unforgettable experience. Ranger-guided tours are available as well as the two trails: the Big Room Trail and the steep Natural Entrance Trail with its formations like The Devil’s spring and Iceberg Rock.

Fingal’s Cave

One of the most famous caves in the world, Staffa Cave is located on the uninhabited Staffa Island off the Scots coast and is characterized by amazing hexagonal basalt columns. Caves of this size and shape have arched roofs that give them the appearance of cathedrals.
