  • Directions & location are spectacular, the staircase down to the rock around exhausting, and the cave worth seeing. At the time it only comes with leadership in the cave. It takes approx 30 min & was offered at us in English, French and Catalan. It starts from 9: 00 to the top of the hour. Before you waiting at the jetty in the rock. The largest part of the cave is not developed for tourists. There is no toilet and the entrance is heavy (13 Euro / adult; 7 Euro / child). The small bar at the parking lot in front of the entrance offers small snacks & drinks. Even the toilet can be used against the latter. We were lucky & could park directly in front of the entrance. Otherwise along the road. There is an exit to a super guard on either side of the cliffs about 500 m before the entrance.

  • The boat ride enjoyable (if there is good sea). The visit to the cave quite interesting, but it should provide more information. A single Guide for more than a hundred people. Expensive: boat more visits, 29 euros.

  • This was worth the trip. Very well organized for tourists. It can be an advantage to check the weather before a take the boat trip out there, it's too much wind the boat can add inside the cave. Drag a of countries there are many stairs down to the cave but proper adapted for anyone to go there. We rented bike to went out there, it was a very nice trip, took about 1 1/2 hour in comfortable pace. On the return trip we stopped at a wonderful beach in Porto Conte.
