Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Salerno / Amalfi Coast / Positano / Cave of Smeraldo
Cave of Smeraldo is known for the iridescent emerald light that covers the walls of the cave. A combination of geological events creates the captivating effect. The only direct opening to outside light is beneath the water. When daylight shines through, the green color appears on the cave walls. You can easily reach the cave via car by taking the ss163 highway from Capri. A small fee provides access to the cave via elevator, while a rowboat manned by a singing tour guide will take you into the grotto's interior. Cave of Smeraldo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Positano Edition.

Cave of Smeraldo Reviews
Sono stato in questo luogo con un gruppo di amici , il posto è moolto bello e merita una visita. Unica pecca il posteggio quasi inesistente more »I was in this place with a group of friends , the place is very nice and worth a visit. The only flaw is the almost non-existent parking lot
青の洞窟は入れないことも多いですが、エメラルドの洞窟はほとんど入れるということで行ってみました。 とても綺麗なブルーの洞窟を見ることができます。 ただ船頭さんにエンターテイメント性があるので好き嫌いが分かれるかもしれません。 more »There are many blue caves that cannot be entered, but I tried to go by putting the emerald cave almost in it. You can see a very beautiful blue cave. However, because there is entertainment in the boathead, likes and dislikes may be divided.
