Why is the Blue Grotto famous?

The Amalfi Coast is a glistening jewel that dazzles in the Mediterranean sun. From glamorous beaches to rustic hillside towns, sumptuous seafood and friendly locals, it’s easy to see why this part of the world has been famous among the glitterati and those seeking a little sun and sand for years!

The island of Capri is just another reason why the Amalfi Coast has our hearts. This beautiful island is dotted with lavish hotels, high-end boutiques and flashy nightclubs, but also retains some of its old world charm, with a bucolic landscape and plenty of natural wonder.

Enter the Blue Grotto – the most famous of its kind. The Blue Grotto is famous for its spectacular illumination, as sunlight seeps in through the sea caves’ entrances and bathes the caves in an ethereal bluish hue.

You need a water taxi to visit this stunning natural phenomenon, with a cheeky tip covering transport and a little singing from your captain, but this all adds to the magic of visiting this once-in-a-lifetime experience – the Blue Grotto is truly that magical.

Be sure to combine a visit to the Blue Grotto with these other wondrous Amalfi experiences:

The Giardini di Augusto

The Giardini di Augusto, or “Gardens of Augustus”, are a sumptuous delight that serve as an oasis from the otherwise rustic Capri landscape. These perfectly-manicured gardens are not only famed for their lush Mediterranean flora, but for the absolutely breathtaking views that extend from the gardens themselves!

All you have to do is take a walk to one side of the gardens and you will find yourself gazing upon the wondrous ocean expanse that stems from the cliffs. This, and the perfect view of the Faraglioni Rocks, makes a visit to the Giardini di Augusto a must…

Spiaggia Grande

You may not know its name, but you’ve seen it on the socials. Spiaggia Grande is one of the world’s most photographed beaches, with its glittering shoreline and day lounges giving way to the pastel-hued homes dotting the large hillside behind it.

You can rent a day lounge, soak in the refreshing water or take a ferry over to the Bagni d’Arienzo, a beach club world famous for oozing Amalfi indulgence.

Sea caves, lush gardens and sun-drenched beaches? It could only be the Amalfi Coast, and it’s fabulous.
