Red worth a quick stop if there is not a long line, you will need to get up close to see the red coral under the waterline. Might want to pass if there is a long line.

This grotto is not as exciting as the green and white grotto. The red is just at the water line. If you are on the boat tour you will get to see all these as you glide around the island.

Our captain showed us lots of grotto's but this was was the most interesting to me. Just watching the water level go up and down to reveal the red colour was pretty cool

The grottos are amazing and world class. They can be all toured in one day via a private charter or a group boat. They are a must see and worth swimming in!

Worth seeing if part of a tour but not exclusively. Not as pretty. Hard to see the colours. Crowds was also very annoying
