The Beautiful Blue Cave in Kotor

Kotor, Montenegro

While traveling through the beautiful city of Kotor in Montenegro, we decided to take a boat tour on the Adriatic Sea, where we got to marvel at the scenery. It was easy to find a boat tour because many people were offering them throughout the city. The boat we chose was very comfortable, and there was more than enough room for me. During the tour, we explored the Blue Cave. Not only is this amazing location full of historical stories, but it’s also stunning. 

The Blue Cave 

The Blue Cave is located on Lustica Peninsula, right off Kotor Bay. It’s known for its beautiful water and is one of Kotor’s most popular attractions. The Adriatic sea is 5 meters deep, and the cave is 9 meters high, allowing room for boats to enter. It’s called the Blue Cave because of the way the light reflects off the sand at the bottom, making the whole cave look blue. As you can see in the photos below, the water is a vibrant, neon blue. It’s some of the prettiest water I’ve ever seen. Not only is it crystal clear, but it reflects everything surrounding it. 

The Tour

During our boat tour, we got the chance to see a lot of cool things. As if that wasn’t cool enough to ride through the Blue Cave, we also got to go through the old World War I and World War II caves that were used to help troops switch boats without being seen. My only warning is that it’s very cold on the water, so I would recommend bringing a light jacket. It was just me, Chris, and the captain on the tour. The guide was so nice, and he went out of his way to stop at five waterway restaurants to help me find Bacardi. 

Should You Go? 

This was such an unforgettable experience! I would highly recommend taking a tour through the Blue Cave. Not only can you learn about the cave, but you can also enjoy a relaxing boat ride and go swimming in the neon, blue waters. If you’re looking for a fun activity in Montenegro, this is a must-see. Thank you for following along with me on my adventures. Stay tuned for more to come!
