Very secluded and beautiful! It is a bit of a hike to get to but absolutely worth it! This means that it is never too crowded and the water is crystal clear

There are about 60 caves and 5 grottos in Capo Palinuro. The grottos are visited by boat tours starting from Palinuro harbour or Marina di Camerota. You can also hire a boat but then you may not enter the grottos. The biggest of them is grotto azzurra which can well compare with her famous sister on Capri Island. Others are smaller with stalagmites in different colors. The blue water is amazing.
But there is a second world below, much larger and only accessible for divers. Fabio Barbieri‘s Palinuro Sub dive center brings you there. They know the caves well and love to show all the marine life there. I have been there four times so far, still new and marvelous things to discover...

We had the grotto to ourselves. We hired a small boat and skipper who took us around the Peninsular and into the grotto.

The drive into Palinuro is worth the trip itself- so beautiful! The town is great but the drive to the port is breathtaking! Here you park your car and just go down to the beach and find a vendor selling boat trips. It was one of the best 15 Euros we spent. The water is blue, the sights gorgeous, and we even stopped at a little cove and had a delicious (and expensive) surprise lunch. The grotto was all it was cranked up to be

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Came to Palinuro for the day and took the Classic 2 hour boat trip to Grotta Azzurra and the coast. It was really worthwhile, the Grotta is truly beautiful

We took a boat ride with Allesandro’s team. The grotte azzurro itself was simply beautiful, incredible colours. It was worth the ride for that alone. However we were then taken for a trip along the coast to see various rock formations. It wasn’t the clearest of days but even with poor visibility it was possible to see all the way down the coast to the toe of Italy. The chance of a 30 min stop with a beer and a snorkel in one of the sandy coves on the way back made for a perfect morning.

After so many good reviews .... if you come from Australia as we do these beaches are poor and the boat trip to the cave nice enough for €15.
If you've been travelling around countryside it's a nice change to be in the water. Don't try to go to the toilet before or after trips as there is one toilet for everybody.
