I took my family here on the last day of our holiday. The views were amazing, but there is absolutely nothing to warn you about the amount of steps, a lot of which are uneven and worn. This is of course part of the beauty...More

Excellent cave near Alghero. The cave is more impressive than I expected, not very large, but with many beautiful shapes, so many different types of stalactites and stalagmites. We visited the cave by boat from the port of Alghero, the voyage by boat was approximately...More

I thought that by mid Oct the crowds would have died down but because they only run the tour on the hour the group was still very big. No idea really why they don't let you go around on your own. That said the caves...More

Amazing cave near the town of Alghero. Dont miss this. And reserve enough time, it takes a whole day walk around.

A welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. 45 minute boat trip and guided tour of the marvellously grotto.

October wouldn’t be as crowded as August. Nevertheless you should avoid Saturday and Sunday.

Just to clarify a bit: If you go by bus (or car) then you can access the cave directly from the (long) stairs. You don't have to go on a boat. You will pay a separate entrance fee for visiting the grotto.
