#1 of 36 in Nature in Sardinia
Cave Nature / Park
Explore ancient cave dwellings on the Island of Sardinia at Frecce delle Grotte di Antonio Piccinnu. Discovered by fishermen in the 18th century, the cave is just above sea level and accessible only when the water is calm via a steep staircase cut into sheer cliff wall. Take a guided tour through the narrow, 4 km (2.5 mi) long cave system to admire the stalagmite and stalactite formations. You can take a boat to the cave from the port of Alghero to view the island's coastline from the water.

Where to stay in Alghero

Compared to Sardinia's other resorts, Alghero offers refreshingly unpretentious lodgings, with comfortable rooms, good food, and friendly locals willing to share insider's tips about the best beaches, clubs, and restaurants. Staying in the compact town center can be quite pricey, but it's the best way to stay close to both good beaches and the most popular nightclubs. If budget is a concern, explore small hotels in the suburbs.
