We rented a boat for the day and our captain took us to the Green Grotto. I am a bit puzzled by the poor reviews but I wonder if the reviewers swam through the grotto? We were there in August and got a chance to...More

When speaking to friends and colleagues about what to do on the Amalfi Coast, several people recommended this as a "must do" on Capri. We had already spent €30 just to get over to the Island. We had to pay a further €14 for a...More

Accessible via boat tour/ private boat. Not as crowded as Blue Grotta and very beautiful! We came here with Gianni's Boat's which is a company I highly recommend. This is part of their 3 hour tour.

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

The boats that take you on a tour around the island also stop momentarily at the Green Grotto, even back part way into it. It’s very beautiful. But it’s not the same experience as the Blue Grotto where a boatman takes you... 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
