Well worth taking a boat trip around the island as you will see far more looking back at the island than you will from the crowded tourist spots on the island. It is funny to see all the boats jostling into the caves, with the...More

I was surprised that the colors of the water, reflected by the sun bouncing off the limestone, would give such differences in brilliant colors such as viridian green and azure blue. We were told that the Blue Grotto experience was very expensive (30 euro pp)...More

When you do a boat tour, you will certainly stop at the green grotto. You do not enter a grotto, but just go next to it with the boat. Depending on the weather, you will witness nice green waters. It is nice to see, but...More

Get a slightly sketch boat and they let you swim in it. The grotto is green and water is nice. Our boat met us on the other side of the grotto (we were slightly afraid he might leave when we jumped in).

Visiting the Green Grotto was part of the hour long cruise we took around the island. The water is so clean and clear and it reflects this beautiful green color. I think it is an intersting thing to see. I really enjoyed the grotto.

As beautiful as the blue grotto, but without the tourist hangups. We were enamored with the green grotto on our private boat tour around the island.

We were told this was a MUST see! Obviously, not during tourist season. It took 20 minutes by boat to get to it, we waited over an hour to be off-loaded from the tour boat onto dingys that hold 3 people and then 10 minutes...More

The green grotto is more accessible than the blue grotto which requires boat transfers etc and our captain backed the boat into the space with expertise and obvious experience .. It's a 5 minute experience .. Nice to see , without being life shattering ..

Stopped off as part of our round island boat trip. Not as impressive as the blue grotto but entry is free here and you don't have to transfer to a smaller boat. We were on one of the bigger round island boats but still got...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
