Set midway up a rock face, this cavern is filled with stalactites and stalagmites, where the limestone rock seems to reflect only white rays of light.

We rented a boat and toured the island of Capri by water. We stopped at the many beautiful rock formations and grottos. The white grotto is one of those. It is a natural formation with an arch that you can enter.

The color and clarity of the water around Capri is astounding. It's absolutely beautiful. The colors are so rich and vivid. The white grotto is quite a site. We took a fairly large boat (at least 50 people) on a tour around the island, and...More

This one is more impressive than the green grotto as you can see the face of the Virgin Mary. It is however overcrowded with boats. You wait your turn then get close for 30 seconds and you're gone again

The other grottos are nicer in my opinion. The boats were queded up and I thought the other grottos were better to look at. Worth seeing if is part of a tour but I wouldn't be making a trip exclusively for this.

We had heard of the many grottos along this coast but were not really sure what to expect. The white grotto was the one we visited first. A huge white cave along the coastline with turquoise waters splashing against the rocks. If you look up...More

Traveled to the White Gratto during a boat tour of the Isle of Capri. The boat tour is worth it to see hidden gems like this. If I had it to do again I would book JUST the tour of the island and skip the...More
