At about 6 nautical miles from Herceg Novi, between Golden Bay and Wet Mountain Harbour cape, at the peninsula of Luštica, there is, perhaps the most beautiful, natural phenomenon on the Montenegrin coast, which many assort in the group of natural gems of the Mediterranean, the Blue Cave.

This natural product is one of the largest in a series of caves on the peninsula, and was created at the foot of a 30-meter cliff, as a result of thousands of years of waves splashing on the porous rocks of Luštica.

The cave has two openings, smaller, to the south and greater, 3 meters high and 15 meters wide , which is located on the southwest side. Through the larger cave entrance, a boats and smaller vessels can enter the Cave and allow tourists to attend the indescribable game of light and water in the interior.

This natural hall with 9 meters high vault, is a unique stage of nature wonders that will leave breathless anyone visiting Blue Cave.

When the days are clear and sunny, through the openings of the cave, the sunshine is entering inside, and is reflected on the surface of water, creating indescribable shades of blue and indigo color, making the water and the walls of cave take on the color by which the cave was named.

These shades of blue you will hardly be able to see anywhere in the world, and clear, warm waters just entice you to dive into this blue and become one with unique atmosphere of this natural theater.

Resonance of the cave turns every sound within it into an echo, which is yet another of the phenomena characteristic of this hidden wonder of nature, aa the one of the most remarkable places of our coast.

Anyone who once swam in the Blue Cave will forever carry within oneself a part of that indescribable blue, as one of the most memorable moments in life.

And will always want to get back there.
