Have plenty of cash for this excursion. That said it’s a pleasant boat ride to the grotto and the process of getting to the grotto a little fiddly ,but wow. Beautiful. So blue. ( could do without the singing and would be great if all you could hear was gasps about the beauty, pretty noisy) wishing it lasted a few more minutes.

If it was free I’d say go, but it’s 14 euro (plus the boat driver will beg you for a tip) and you get a whopping 90 seconds in the cave. And the cave itself, I mean it’s nice, but it was disappointingly small. You go in, take a photo or two, then you leave. In summary, spend your money on something else.

14 euros on a boat from the main marina and then transfer to a rowing boat to see the cave, another 14 euros. The cave was over in 2 minutes and both sets of boats wanted a tip. Sad tourist trap which is not worth the effort, time or money - better parts of the island to explore.

Nice boat trip from the town to the caves. You then transfer to rowing boats, pay the entrance fee and are rowed into the caves. It is very busy with many boats outside waiting for their passengers to be transferred to the rowing boats. Inevitably this means that you only have a short time in the cave. It is beautiful and I'm glad I did it but do prepare for it to be short.

When the boat gets to the grotto you have to wait until boarding a small wooden row boat: three in the back and one up front. Then wait until the sailor decides to go into the grotto when the waves let the water go down so the five in the boat, lying flat, don’t get their heads scratched by the low rock entrance. Inside you stay a minute or so seeing how the sun from outside makes the water in the dark cave look iridescent blue and a sailor sings in prompting Torna Sorrento. Same story to get out. €14 emtranve and smiles fee. Feel again like a child.
