Blue Grotto Anacapri
A holiday in Capri is not complete without an excursion to the Blue Grotto, which can be visited thanks to boat trips that depart from Marina Grande or via land from Anacapri. Whether by land or sea, when we approach the Grotto, we have to board small boats that are capable of squeezing through the narrow entrance. The Romans knew of its existence, but it was rediscovered in the 19th century. It owes its spellbinding atmosphere to a geological phenomenon that caused it to drop by 20 metres, lowering the entrance to almost below the
sea level. Filtered by water, the light creates an exceptional colour: an intense blue that shines with silver reflections on the inside.
The grotto is not very large – 54 metres wide, 14 metres wide and 30 metres high – and it extends towards the inside with the Galleria dei Pilastri, which is an area covered in stalactites. Featuring charming little bays and rocky cliffs, Capri offers beach resorts nestled in the rocks, as well as a number of sandy beaches.
