Search Hotel, B&B and Vacation Homes

The Blue Grotto of Taormina is the largest of the sea caves that open into the rocky walls of Capo Sant’Andrea. It is about thirty meters deep, while the seabed reaches a depth of eighteen meters. The cave is called the Blue Grotto because of the light that, when it enters, colors the sea in shades ranging from turquoise to emerald green. There are several ways to reach the Blue Grotto in Taormina. The first is by swimming, starting from the beach of Isola Bella. In this case it is advisable to arrive very early, because in summer there is a great crowd of boats. The second option is to take advantage of one of the many organized excursions that depart both from Giardini Naxos and from Isola Bella itself. The third option is diving, perhaps with the help of one of the schools present in Taormina. Finally, there is the possibility of jet skiing.
