Found close to the peaceful Blue Flag beach resort of Palinuro, Cilento’s Blue Grotto is a spectacular karst cave, with a magical secret only visible from within. Because of the way the sunlight refracts when shone through the cave’s turquoise waters, visitors inside are treated to spectacular blue illuminations that are often compared to those of Capri’s Blue Grotto.
The best way to enjoy the grotto is by booking onto one of the local boat tours, most of which take you around numerous caves along the spectacular Cilento coast. Check ahead for sea conditions and weather forecasts, as bright sunshine is essential to see the Blue Grotto looking its best.
