We rented a boat and toured the island on our own. It was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We stocked the small open hull boat with a cooler and took a map. We stopped at the grottos, arches, and rock formations at will....More

The grottos are amazing and world class. They can be all toured in one day via a private charter or a group boat. They are a must see and worth swimming in!

Worth seeing if part of a tour but not exclusively. Not as pretty. Hard to see the colours. Crowds was also very annoying

This red "grotta" was easy to see from the boat but not as impressive as it was tucked low in the water and to my eye did not show its red color like the other grottos.

It was an nice stop along the way of the boat tour, but not one of the best, scenic grottos. It may be better in the morning when the sun is on that side of the island.

We visited this place during our around island tour. Nice place but hadn't wow effect. Good place to visit.

Deep blue grotto with a red rim where coral grows at sea level. Visible only by boat - but one of the standard stops on the tour around the north-western part of the island.

The red coral is amazing. Take a boat tour around the whole island to see all of the grottoes. Get real close if you can. Quite pretty.
