This place is worth a visit

Went by boat... Didn't fancy the steps... Make sure the Grotto is open!!!!!!! Waves make it dodgy. You pay for the boat trip..... Then pay to get in the Grotto, be warned.

You pay because it's a popular place but it's not worth visiting it. you can enjoy with better scenery in other places of the island for free. rude staff, not effective.

We have visited in January with friends. Nice day, yes you will walk about 900 steps down and up. There was bored guy waiting, the "show" lasted 15 minutes. At the entrance there is stinky horrible toilet without doors, so please do your "need" at the parking not in the cave. Steps are great, views are beautiful. I would next... More

It is a must visit place in Alghero. If you visit Alghero you can't miss going to "Grotta di Nettuno". When you appear to be there you feel like you get in a fairy-tale.

Understandable on a cold January day that it was closed - but still bummed. Very picturesque. We will try again tomorrow. Also a great drive to the location with plenty of places to stop on the way up and down to snap photos.

Myself and my partner really enjoyed the walk to and from the grotto. It was great exercise and you look upon stunning views there and back. Once you get into the grotto you are surrounding in spectaliclar views from every angle. Every photographers dream. If visiting Sardinia, add this to your itinery.

If you are on holiday in Sardinia, you must visit Neptune's Cave. The access is possible by boat (approx 15 min for 15 euros) or by foot after 654 steps. I highly recommend going by foot due to the magnificent view from the stairs embedded in the 100 meters high cliff.
