About Grotta Dello Smeraldo, Positano

A unique natural phenomenon and one of its kind cave, this beauty gets its name from the striking illumination formed by the sun rays and the partially filled sea water that fills the cave.

The cave has only one opening underwater and can be accessed through a special elevator. Bushes, flowers and blue sea add to the allure of the cave.

The Grotto Dello Smeraldo is one of the most beautiful gifts of nature to our planet. The sun rays hitting the clear water of the sea give a spectacular sight to all visitors. There is a ticket for Grotto Dello Smeraldo entry and for using the elevator to reach the view point.

Grotta Dello Smeraldo, Positano Reviews

  • The grotto had a beautiful blue colour. But... It is very small and really expensive for a 5 minute boat around. Felt a little bit like a tourist trap...

  • Worthwhile to visit if you are driving around. It costs only 5 euro, despite the "tour" itself is rather short, 15 minutes boat visit in the middle of the small underground lagoon. The views are spectacular.

  • We had the misfortune of arriving when a tour bus arrived. They crammed about 24 people into a very small boat. While the site was beautiful it wasn't worth the time or the money.

  • Do not go to this place. It is a waste of money. They took us on a tour of the grotto which was less than 5 minutes and asked us for tip 4 times during that time. Not very impressive either. Take the 10 euro entrance fee and go across the street and get a ceramic souvenir instead.

  • If it's a) a very sunny day, b) around midday to 3pm (when the sun will enter the grotto the best), c) the queue for the boats isn't too long/big and d) you have never been to a sea cave/grotto before, then go! Otherwise, if you never go inside and get asked for a tip twice by the same boatman within 5 minutes of a 7 minute 'tour' (i.e. paddle around in a circle and come back to the quay), then your life will not be immeasurably worth any the less. The saving grace of the trip was the ferry ride back when a ferryman gave us a "tour" of all the sites along the coast including (allegedly) Sophia Lorens nice little pad on the cliff (he was expecting a tip of course).
