Blue Cave and the Mamula Island

Mamula Fort

This small islet is of circular shape, and is 200m in diameter. It is 3.4 nautical miles (6.3 km) away from Herceg Novi. While the fort has deteriorated the island is still visited by boats, mainly from Herceg Novi, and is a popular one-day trip destination. The island beaches are very pleasant.

The island has a different name, but everyone knows it because of the Mamula Fort. The fort was named after the Austrian general who built it in the 19th century. It was used as a fort, later as a prison, took part in both world wars, but after the World War II it's abandoned. There are no people on the island, so you can enter the fort for free. Despite the fact that it looks like new and is well preserved, always be careful and watch your step.

Far from an entrance to the castle, the Blue Grotto (Plava Spilja) is a natural phenomenon that surpasses it’s cousin, the Blue Cave on the Italian Island of Sicily, because unlike it’s Italian cousin, it’s much less traveled and not yet polluted by innumerable touristic boats.

Blue Cave (Blue Grotto, Plava Spilja)

The Blue Cave is one of many caves at this location, but it's the only one that you can visit even on a boat, so it has become a tourist spot. When your eyes adjust to the darkness, you will see why the cave is called blue. Even better it's noticeable under the water (see the photo below). You can swim in the cave.

Entering the this blue cave itself at first seems like a daunting experience – the rock above the entrance is low and as your eyes adjust, everything seems to be cast in extreme darkness. However, after realizing that the cavern is large enough to accommodate several boats, you pass a small bend and realize why this natural wonder is called the Blue Cave – luminous, brilliant blue light wells up from under the water and casts a blue shadow on the grotto’s ceiling above you. You slowly lower yourself from the boat and enter the pale-blue waters that strangely enough are several degrees warmer than water outside the cave…
