We took a tourist boat from Alghero to these caves and they are large with relatively easy access. Eat you heart out Cheddar Gorge / Wookey Hole! Was pretty crowded and conveyor-belty, but it was August!

The stairs in stone to climb down the cliffes are incredible. But 13€ for the viSit of the cave is far too pricey !! Another option is to get down until the grotte to see the views but not enter the grotte

thought i'd recount my experience even if not specifically reviewing all the cave. sounded like a good jaunt and loving boat trips, thought i'd give it a go. I just walked onto one of the harbour tour boats, there's numerous and they go every couple of hours. maybe I should have asked more questions. as someone mentioned earlier its important... More

All day trip costs 45€, from 9am to 17pm. First stop is the best!! Beautiful blue sea, monumental rocks, and you can jump to the water from the boat. Very deep water, swimmers only! Then they served dinner. We didnt enjoyed it, the pasta with seafood was very cold, but most people ate it. Second stop was the cave. We... More

I had a great time. And the crew was very intended in every way possible. The food was excellent the views were fantastic,seen dolphins swimming along with the boat the entire trip was excellent. If you want to have a great experience go down to the port and ask for Davide.

There are two ways to get there. Either you use boat trip from Alghero harbor (we used Navisarda) or spectacular stairs. We decided to use boat considering children and July hot weather. Inside cave you need to buy tickets, so better have cash with you - around 10 EUR. Then you walk around in groups and it's pretty crowded in... More

Me and my boyfriend went here to see the cave. We took a bus to a parking where the stairs started. It is a lot of steps, but if you take your time, it's a ok trip. If you don't want to do that you can take a boat. I think maybe the view from the stairs were more beautiful... More

This is absolutely must do when in Alghero! Take a boat from Porto Alghero directly to the Grotto, go along with excursion through the cave and return back to the city with the same boat,- the round trip is 2,5 hours and is a very impressive experience.

We went there by car. So we walked the many steps in the heat. Bring water and be in good condition otherwise take the boat. If you havent been to a cave before this is a great place to start.

Prepare your legs for a 5-10 min walk on stairs of you don't come with the boat. The cave were really awesome but I hoped that you would get further in then we did.
