THE BLUE CAVE (Modra špilja) is located in the Balun Cove, on the eastern side of the island. It has been known to our fishermen since ancient times, whereas it was revealed to the world in 1884 when Baron Eugen Rensonneta expanded its entrance. Through this new, deepened entrance of 1.5m in height and 2.5m in width, the cave can be entered only by small boats with oars through a long sea passage. The Cave is 24m long and 12m wide. The depth of the sea in the Cave is 16m. The Cave is divided in two parts by an underwater bridge at the depth of 6 meters. The origin of its name is associated with the reflection of sunrays coming through the underwater opening on the southern side of the Cave illuminating it with the blue color and giving the objects in the water a blue-grayish color.
