This red "grotta" was easy to see from the boat but not as impressive as it was tucked low in the water and to my eye did not show its red color like the other grottos.

It was an nice stop along the way of the boat tour, but not one of the best, scenic grottos. It may be better in the morning when the sun is on that side of the island.

We visited this place during our around island tour. Nice place but hadn't wow effect. Good place to visit.

You probably wouldn't just set out to see this one as it's not that special but another interesting and beautiful spot on the grand tour of grottos. Grotti. Grottum?? No idea what the plural of grotto is - I'm sure it's not Grotty...
