Back on board, continue to Maronti Beach with its natural Fumarole and La Scarrupata Bay to San Pancrazio Bay, with its sandy seabed and caribbean water, the most beautiful place on the island. This place is also the famous Grotta dello Smeraldo (Emerald Cave) where the water is emerald green and with the possibility of getting under the coast, you will dive and enter this cave by swimming and see the play of light from the sun’s rays. In this place you will be delighted by a beautiful aperitif on board organized by our crew.
