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.

Passing Visit

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.

This cave is located in the region of the island called Tiberio. That is on the eastern side of the Capri. We got there with our boat on journey around the island. In difference from the other caves we've seen already, as the Blue Cave and Green Cave, this one is formed of the limestone. Furthermore, inside were found amazing... More

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, but if you are taking a boat tour around the Isle, it would be enhanced... More

visited as part of a boat tour of the island. its a beautiful place to visit. The white grotta has a quiet and calming ambience and the statue of the holy mother almost looks carved. Very realistic however if you blink wrong you may miss it.

You can get in close to this grotto and disembark. The climb the steps and go into the cave. There is a stalagmite that looks like the Madonna, this is visible from your boat.

Interesting to see how the water has worn away and smoothed out the rock formation which looks very white in colour.

It is impossible to decide which of the "Grottas" is most impressive. They are each unique and beautiful for different reasons. If you can, hire a local owner of a small boat in order to experience the grottas at your own pace and in peace. It's worth it. The white grotta is quite majestic, and in a smaller vessel you...

Less popular than the incredible Blue Grotto, the White Grotto is also amazing. Whether on a private boat or elbow-to-elbow with tourists, the incredible caves and water here are worth a visit.
