Blue Cave (Plava Spilja)
Located on Montenegro’s Lustica Peninsula, the Blue Cave is one of the country’s most popular attractions. Also known as the Blue Grotto, it derives its name from the iridescent blue water that is reflected throughout the cave. The largest of several caves on the peninsula, the Blue Cave features clear, warm water about five meters deep that is great for swimming or snorkeling. Indeed, many say you need to see the water underneath the surface to truly appreciate it. With a ceiling about nine meters high, the cave is a popular stop for tour boats, most of which will give you about 10-15 minutes to take a quick swim.

Practical Info

The Blue Cave is only accessible by boat or kayak. Visitors can take an organized tour that might also include stops at Fort Mamula, Montenegro’s version of Alcatraz, and one of several beaches. Tours leave regularly from the Herceg Novi marina between April and November. Alternatively, you might charter a private boat or join a kayaking tour to the cave. The boat ride from Herceg Novi to the cave takes about 45 minutes.
Address: Herceg Novi, Montenegro
Admission: Free (price of boat tour varies)

The Blue Cave, situated at Lustica Peninsula, rightfully carries the title of the most wanted attraction in our Bay. This cave was created by force of waves, clashing the 100meter high cliff for hundreds of years. This is our first stop, where you can enjoy a half an hour of swimming in marvelous cave crystal blue water. It was named the Blue Cave because of its unusual blue color which is the result of the reflection of sun rays on clear sunny days. After the cave, we will make a short sightseeing of Mamula Island, which was used as a prison during Word Wars. Proceeding ahead we will stop and enter one of the three submarine tunnels, which during Second World War served to hide submarines and small navy ships. Our next stop will be Lady of the Rocks, the artificial Island in front of Perast, made in 15th Century . The island is famous for its stunning Catholic church made by Venetians in 1630. After extraordinary panoramic view of Perast, we are getting back to Kotor.
