The blue cave (Croatian: Modra Spilja) is located on the island of Bišovo in south Croatia. a cruise to the blue cave takes about an hour. The unique beauty of this cave derives from the deep blue color of the water that lies within it, since this cave is a marine cave the rays of the sun enter the cave in such a rare way turn their color into a glowing blue turquoise, which makes all the boats (and visitors) glow in the same blue halo.
Actually there are quite a lot of caves around the island but the most popular is the Blue Cave. It has been reachable since 1884. The entrance to the cave is allowed only by boat (no swimming inside the cave) and the motorboats switch off engines before entering the cave to keep silence and clean air inside the grotto.
It depends on where you take the cruise from – if you set out from split it is around 95 euros, and the cruise takes about 2 hours to get to, there are different cruises and most usually also evolve sightseeing, swimming and snorkeling around the islands.
