Came here on a small boat tour from Positano to Capri Island. Only accessed via boat. It was busy with tour boats trying to back in and show off the green coloured water, with a small arch that leads to the other side of the...More

The Green Grotto is a really nice place to stop and did not seem to be as crowded as the other grotto’s. You will need a smaller boat to get up close but it is worth the effort.

Highly recommend visiting Capri. Don’t schedule a tour. Rent a boat and have them take you all around the island. The larger boats can’t get into all of the grottos. Plus you can do some swimming.

Ok so it’s further to travel and you have to swim into the grotto but I am so pleased we did it. It wasn’t too busy in the grotto and it is truly emerald green. Great photos. Great experience.

This Grotto is utterly mesmerising. The colour of the water has to be seen to be believed. We stopped here for a swim during a private boat tour around the island and were the only people in the water. it is certainly an experience not...More

Boat trip to get there then transfer into a small rowing boat to go inside because it is very low. Amazing colours and really is nature at its best. Best to go early morning as queues can really start to build later in the day.

I don't think anyone goes into the green or white grottos as you might go into the blue grotto, but its part of most of the boat tours and we enjoyed it. I did see people swimming so perhaps the "tours" of the green and...More

We went by foot from Anacapri after 17h00 for free and we had the possibility to swim and to get into the cave without the crowd. Inside is extremely beautiful. The next day we passed by boat without stopping and we were surprised to see...More

We accessed the Green Grotto via boat and it is beautiful but am sure there are more spectacular grottos but still worth it. The Blue grotto [which I wasn't able to enter because of the tides] is an experience based on... More

You can visit this grotta whenever (there is no cop/ticket-agent to stop you, unlike at Grotta Azurra): but note that the green hue is visible only during the sunlight. so, anytime when the sun is up should be fine. it... More
