The Caves of Maratea, often hollowed in the rock by the sea, are a particularly interesting phenomenon. Many of them show signs of human presence during prehistory.

In the area called ‘Marina’, it is possible to visit several of these caves.

Amongst them there is the Monacelli Cave that can only be reached by boat and that is characteristic for its blue colour, due to the effect of the light reflected in an underwater cave.

The Cave of the Bats and the Judia Cave can be reached by boat. The latter can also be reached through a path along the beach and is characterised by spring water bubbles, due to the presence of marine springs.

The Dream Cave is particularly evocative and has a wide entrance in a spur on the sea. On the Northern side of the Caina Cape there is the fascinating Cetroselle Cave.

These Caves should be explored with caution and with the help of a guide.
