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 were lucky enough to visit here on our private boat tour. Our guide brought us here and dropped us off at the cliff side staircase. We climbed up to find the most amazing cave and stalagmite formations. The view back down to the water...More

On the northwestern side of the island, we were able to get close to the Red-Orange Coral Cave and the Stalagmites Cave and Grotta Bianco, that were tucked below towering limestone cliffs. Our boat pulled close to the Stalagmites Cave where there is a natural...More

Worth a visit but if you are on a boat tour you will probably visit this anyway. Needs a bit of imagination and licence. Only a few minutes spent in the enclosed area as with boats queuing waiting to enter

If you are of the Marionnites, you can take a little boat tour to see the white grotto. Since there are many boats all waiting their turn, you will have enough time bobbing about in the waves to view the Madonna high up in the...More

We were taken to the White Grotto by the Captain of our boat as we sailed to Capri. It was a magnificent site and we were so chuffed to have seen it. It is well worth a visit.

Only accessible from the sea the white grotto is a large limestone cave in which stalagmites and stalagtites are found. One of the stalagmites growing from the floor of the cave has a human shape and locals claimed it was the Madonna.

We took a boat tour around the island. All the Grottoes are beautiful in their own way. and each worth seeing. None are remotely as busy as the Blue Grotto.

This was an interesting limestone cave with stalagmites and stalactites, although a very small cave. One of the stalagmite formations has the appearance (to some) of the Virgin Mary. By itself, the White Grotto is not spectacular or perhaps not of great interest to many,...More
