You pay 5 euro to sit in a boat which goes in a circle for 10 minutes and you can see most of it from where you pick up the boat. The boatman is amusing which makes up a bit but don't go out of your way to visit.

The whole experience last less than 15 minutes, the cave is not bad but singing was awfull and asking for the tip every few seconds (I quote "Don't forget about me") was the worse. This is lovely coast don't waste your money, don't waste your time

Large and beautiful grotto with beautiful green water, stop in on your coast tour (more fun than the Blue Grotto on Capri)

We came on the off season so no lines we were actually wondering whether we arrived to the right spot. The trip costs five euros , our guide was hilarious speaking a mix of English and Hebrew ( we were four Israelis and three Americans). The cave is lovely with nice green light and some stalactites and stalagmites. When the guide hit the water with his rower it was actually beautiful.
