Inside the Green Cave Croatia
As you approach the Green Cave you will notice the two natural entrances into the cave. The smaller one on the left and the larger entrance on the right side. As opposed to the Blue Cave where you enter with a small wooden ship provided by the locals, we can enter inside the Green Cave with our speedboat.
As we enter inside the Green Cave you will undoubtedly first notice the specious room inside the cave with towering cave walls all around you. The green reflection on the walls is created as the sun hits the rocks on the cave bottom which are covered with green algae. This phenomenon is the reason Green Cave got its name.
The biggest attraction inside the cave is certainly a circular hole on the top of the cave ceiling. The sun beam enters the hole and you can clearly see the beam of light coming from the top of the cave all the way beneath the sea surface reflecting on the rocky cave bottom. This famous light beam is responsible for creating mesmerizing light effects inside the cave.
Jumping, Swimming and Snorkeling at Green Cave
Inside the Green Cave, as opposed to its popular counterpart Blue Cave, the swimming and snorkeling is allowed. This presents the unique opportunity to experience a special feeling of swimming and snorkeling inside the cave.
As you dive beneath the sea surface, using the snorkeling masks we have on board, you will enjoy in the strong blue light coming from the cave entrances. But again, the true underwater attraction is the beam of light reflecting from the sea bottom creating magical golden bubbles of light.
The legend of the Green Cave states that if you dive through these golden bubbles of light you will live for one hundred years so make sure to check this task of your to do list. If you have an underwater camera be sure to have it with you as the underwater scenery of the Green Cave is perfect for creating everlasting memories.
The last attraction of the Green Cave, for those of more adventurous spirit, is a jump from the top of the Green Cave into the clear sea below. There is no legend connected with this jump, and it can be a bit dangerous, but as we leave the Green Cave of Ravnik island, you will undoubtedly see a few who dared to try.
Keep in mind though, once you climb to the top of the Green Cave there is no way down but to jump!
