6. The Blue Grotto (Capri, Italy)

The Blue Grotto is an emblem of the island of Capri in Italy. It is a sea cave found in the coast of the island and is well known to all tourists that visit Capri. This cave is so unique because it has a brilliant blue and emerald glow. This spectacular glow comes from two sources. One is the entrance way to the cave which is a small opening where only one rowboat can enter at a time. And the other one is the larger hole underneath the entrance way which is submerged in the water. The entrance way, when viewed from the inside of the cave appears as a brilliant white light just above the water line. The second hole from underneath the water which is the larger source of light gives the blue glow.

1. Fingal’s Cave

Staffa Island is an uninhabited island off the coast of Scotland. It’s host to several sea caves, the most famous being Fingal’s Cave. It is also called Uamh Binh, or Cave of Melody.

Fingal’s Cave is 70 meters (227 ft) long and is made entirely of interlocking hexagonal pillars of basalt—similar to those found at the Giants’ Causeway—possibly formed by prehistoric lava flow and a tumultuous sea. In 1829, composer Felix Mendelssohn visited Fingal’s cave, and the sound of the waves inside became the inspiration for his Hebrides Overture. He didn’t enjoy the trip much though; Mendelssohn got seasick.
