Got up early so we would be one of the firsts when the grotte would be opened (9am). When we arrived some people were already waiting in front of the ticket office (on top of the stairs, next to the (really small) parking place).
In the next 45 minutes more people (and coaches) arrived but noone for the ticket shop. Everyone was confused. At 10 am someone came up the stairs, told us there would be another ticket office downstairs. There were no sign to tell people that! Really bad service and handling with customers!
We left, because we didn't want to wait another hour until the next tour would start (at 11), plus we didn't want to visit the caves with another hundreds of people.

Words like wondrous , extraordinary and unbelievable come to mind ...honestly there are so many natural jewels in Sardegna that you could visit a new one every day . Frecce delle Grotte is so heavenly ( you can take photos , not at entrance or narrow passages ) that the best word to describe this experience is mesmerized ....look around you while you are there ...you will will see many mouths open and many ooohhh ahhhhhhs
Trust me , I have been traveling to Sardegna since 1973 , I have seen 90 % of the Island
This is a treat to be remembered , great visit for everyone ~ Enjoy

This was amazing.

We approached by boat & it really is something very special.

I do not think you will be disappointed.

TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS IS ALLOWED! just not at the entrance and the narrow areas where you might stop the whole crowd!!!! First of all, it is worth a visit, even if some people review it otherwise. I would recommend to go there by car, parking is available along the street and some slots are right at the entrance but mostly occupied. If you can’t walk stairs then take the boat, either right before the stair entrance ( a few minutes away by car) or all the way from Alghero.
If you’re not interested in the caves, walk the stairs for 3,50€, nice easy hike (actual stairs all the way) or take the cave tour for 13€. Did the latter also to write this review.
You can walk the stairs freely. Some wrote you have to go early because the stairs are in the shade in the morning, we went at 11:00 and they were mostly still in the shadow, so no need to hurry, came out 1pm and half of the stairs was still in the shade. If you want to enter the cave it is always a guided tour at given times.

the way to the grotto is great. great view. the stairs require some fitness. price to visit the stairs 3,50 EUR. the grotto is at the end of the stairs. Many tourists. I did not like the grotto very much. but is my opinion. price for the grotto 13 EUR. decide for yourself.

This was one of the most mentioned tourist attraction from Alghero so we felt compelled to go.

There are hourly boats (until 3pm i think) which took about 45 mins to reach the cave. Alternatively you can reach there by bus or car in a shorter time frame but you'll need to willing to use over 650 steps to reach the cave! Something we weren't going to consider at 30 degrees!

We bought tickets from Navidarsa. Kiosk is around the corner from the boat. There are other boats which vary slightly in price. We bought ours 15 mins before departure. Cost was €16 adults and €8 child.

The boat was big with a large upper deck in open and lower covered deck. The breeze helped us in the heat.

When we arrived we were all ushered off at the entrance and there was some sort of haphazard queue which included people from other boats or who had walked down. We had no idea who were from our boat.

We then paid €13 adult and €7 child to walk through the cave following the path. There were 100s of tourists so were ushered through fairly quickly to keep the 'chain' moving. I had to take my snaps fairly quickly. The whole excursion was about 40 mins and suitable for all ages although you would have to carry very young children as not buggy friendly. On return our boat was waiting but I couldn't help think that had I spent more time taking photos, would the boat crew know I wasn't on board? Nothing was checked when I boarded or the crew must have brilliant memory!

To improve this excursion,

The tickets should be less expensive.
The grotto tickets should be sold with boat tickets (or 1 ticket for both). After all who would take a boat to the grotto and not enter it?
Maybe have wristbands so crew can check whole party has returned to boat?

If you've found my review helpful please tick the box!

The views from the top of the cliff and on the walk down were stunning. The caves were worth all the effort of the walk down. We missed the guided tour by minutes and were told to catch them up which gave the opportunity to view the caves in a much better ambience. If we had to wait we would have been in a party of a 100 plus. The guide was very good and on speaking to him walking back knew all about other caves and explorations in the area. He hadn't just read a briefing sheet and quoted it.
Worth the visit but Very busy if you are not there first thing.

Boats are available from Alghero harbour for 15 Euro & entrance fee. The other option would be to take the tour bus or beach bus to Capo Caccia -the downside of this is the 654 steps down to the grotto. This would not be an option for those with mobility issues.
