Blue Grotto Cave Capri Italy

The Blue Grotto Cave on the island of Capri in Italy is one of several sea caves worldwide that is flooded with a brilliant blue or emerald light. Once inside, the dazzling effect becomes clear - the water below is more light-filled, as it were, than the air above the surface. The source of this light comes from a gap in the rock underneath the cave entrance and it sends its iridescence beautifully through the water. If you place your hand in the water it will glow eerily in this light.
