The must-see attraction on Capri is the magical Blue Grotto, where visitors take a boat ride through a natural cavern that is filled with an ethereal and eerie light reflecting on the (very blue) water.

My boyfriend and I visited blue grotto and we're absolutely astounded! It took our breath away. You have to try and go mid day so you get to appreciate the beauty of the light hitting the water to make it so blue!
