The boat ride to the grotto was nice. You pay on land for the trip. Once at the sight, they wanted an additional €16.00/person to go into the grotto!!! We were mad and walked up the outside steps along the wall to the top of the mountain. The views are spectacular! And worth the trek. Another part of our party... More

It was terrific, scaring, exciting and beautiful altogether!!!. I refer to the boat trip to the cave. the cave itself it is not impressive but the arrival is something not to miss. Careful if you have health problems because the arrival is not easy. the crew do their best to put the bridge between the boat and the cave but... More

Great sight to see, just driving to it and you see spectacular views. Parking is easy on the strip to entrance. We walked down/up the 600 odd stairs and down is easy but omg going up is def hard! We are fairly fit and it is a struggle but an experience just in itself. The caves are also beautiful and... More

The cave itself is really nice (directly accessible by land or by sea) but the real spectacle is outside it. The stairs that lead to it provide you with a jaw-dropping scenery, it's truly breathtaking. The water has a deep blue, vibrant color that I've not seen anywhere else. My vacation photos look like they've been Photoshopped, it's that beautiful.... More

Enjoyed the experience as not been in caves for many years but don't expect any wow moments beyond the first 2 minutes inside. Tour is longer then you need as guide as to say everything in 3 languages. We parked at cliff top and walked down - hard work even if fit. But the views and reward makes it worthwhile.... More

A boat ride from Alghero is the best way to visit Grotta di Nettuno, as it's quite a charming trip. Disembarking is especially entertaining, and a little nervewracking, depending on the state of the sea. Some seriously skilled ferry boat captains judge the swell of the sea just right to not dash you against the rocks. The caves themselves are... More

We visited the cave in January and I'm happy that we did that although we read that it is open from April - October... Nice challenge to take the more than 600 steps but worth doing it. Found it a bit expensive though.

We took a bicycle here from Alghero, which is quite a ride for untrained mortals like my girlfriend and I. The sights on the stairs are worth the trouble and once inside the cave it looks pretty cool with all the formations. Overall a nice daytrip, but wear comfortable and sturdy shoes.

I visited Neptunes Grotto with some work friends, and it was a great attraction to see because it was so different from the beaches and the ocean views that Sardinia provides many of. There is a steep climb down and back up with 600 odd stairs. It is fine on the way down, but it is good to take it... More

It's not the most spectacular cave I have seen but it's a nice quick boat ride from the jetty just before Capo Caccia. If you plan to drive to the jetty then make sure you get there early because there's no proper parking, just a rocky patch where the road ends which has a capacity of about 5 cars. I... More
