We didn't go down because the stairs down at the cave were very crowded and I didn't feel safe. So we came back and had some beers and coffee at the bar. The view is fantastic!

We took the boat to the cave, which was a nice, scenic ride. Convenient achoring next to cave entrance. Walk thorugh the cave took 40 min. Only drawback was that it was crowded.

This really must be visited if your in Alghero. We tried once on a boat trip, but was unable to dock, so had to walk down the 650+ steps, luckily we managed to get a boat back. The steps really are hard work, I have some arthritis & thought I would be ok, but there was no way I could... More

Gorgeous views and the caves are cool. Be aware that there's a lot of steps in and out of the grotto for those with fitness/mobility issues

We drove from Algehero, and the drive alone, up Capo Cassia, was beautiful enough. Then to walk down the stairs to the grotto was again breathtaking. The grotto is lovely, although the tour is fairly short. All together it is a great experience, be sure to pack lots of water.

Must see attraction. Able to get to it by sea or on foot but beware the 650 or so steps! Like a cathedral inside. Fantastic.

Worthy of visiting, no tripod, but still a tons of picture to take. Although walking 656-step staircase is tiring, personally found it's more fun than taking a boat.
