Grotte della Poesia is a natural pool in the middle of cliffs. In this place is suggested to dive by the morning, before the sun leaves the place.

Visited about a month ago and had great fun. Very busy in August but the cliff jumping good fun. TIP - wear reef shoes or similar as it is hard work on the feet otherwise!!

Just south of Roca Vecchia. Parking north or south. Small walk over the cliffs. I guess the most dangerous is to be hit by an italian who’s jumping without noticing if anybody is in the water below him.... they jump like they drive. The pool...More

Just a few pictures to see what the pool really looks like in August. Way too many people! Don’t come at 4pm like we did.

Arrived at 8.30h which was perfect to avoid the crowds and relax a little bit. Beautiful cave, nice water to swim in.

Perfect place to visit after a nice day at the beach! Highly recommendable for a romantic sky panorama with great views both on the grotto and on the Adriatic Sea!

Very charming place with super clear waters, also quite clean which is nice considering the amount of people getting there every day :) The waters around are also nice for snorkeling if you like it, full of rocks and tiny cliffs.

Watching people tombstoneing into the blue grotto or jumping of the rocks into the open sea is bizarrely fascinating. There is no shade here from the sun and the place is very busy but worth a visit

Yep, do not park on the road! No matter how many cars there are parked! You will get a ticket! When we got there, there car-park was full. But then - we were there in August.
