  • Illuminated, open and huge, well neat and clean, has of guide although not in all those languages. Can go to your step and remove photos without flash, it only bad is the amount of people that put in a group, even so is so large that if you late a little can stroll with tranquility and will be some photos in solo of it more cool. The access can be done through two-way: stairs with more than 600 steps to the edge of the cliff or using a boat that leaves you on the edge of the entrance, one takes in Alghero, but truth which to me to see them move from the boat to the cave gave me enough fear, looks at any time beating against the rocks. We chose to get off and walk up the stairs, it was not very tired indeed, the possible problem comes when Park goes enough people. We found a hollow miracle on one side of the road that takes you up to the top where the cave is located. I don't remember the price but around 13 euros, something carillo but I think that it is worth.

  • It is a typical visit to a quiet day which can be done overland, descending a staircase in the rock wall not suitable for all audiences, or from the sea by boat. We chose the last option. The part showing the cave is well lit and with the marked route. The explanations usually in Italian or in English.

  • At the end of a journey where you can enjoy the beauties of the Sardinian coast, a parking lot with a vision to 360 ° from the tip! Access to the cave which is finally at the level of the sea, by many stairs on the side of cliffs, beautiful! nice pictures if you do the tour in the morning, contrast colors, brightness. The cave has its charm, rare french translation. Take your time to return because then everything back! think about a bottle of fresh water in the car, otherwise there is a small bar with a nice panorama towards the entrance of the cave. Ability to also access the cave by boat, another form of walk. In short a site that leaves no one indifferent to the nature lovers.
