    Visit well-organized and not to be missed. A walk in the cool and light inside the mountain between stalactites and stalagmites excellently conducted by friendly and knowledgeable guides

    It can be reached only by boat, spending on adult €8 input and €4 kids and children over 5 years. Inside a path leads up to the in of the browsable, in constant temperature below 20 degrees, it is advisable to bring something. Inside there are rules to be followed, you can make photo but many peasants don't care and make them anyway. The girl who drove us was good, clear is competent. They really deserve it!

    Splendid and vast cave. Guide in Italian and English. The Southern Branch is accessible by boat, the North Fork by a path that allows to have splendid views over the Bay of Orosei. Arrival via a bridge overlooking the sea. 1 / 2 h-3 / 4 h of walk. Trail with passages a little difficult with children or elderly (wood ladders, stony and steep trail in some places). Take water and not go in tap dance. The tour group is of a dozen people, no need to book while in the southern part there are nearly 200 people at the same time. Visit time: 45' about. €10 / adult and € 5/children.

  • North side of the cave access by walking 1h from Cala Fuili beach. Cave visit is 1h. The guide was very nice and the cave size impressive. Good shoes required for the treck.
  • Awesome experience, the caves are really interesting and the tour was well organised. Costs €22 per person from Porto di Cala Gonone, regular departure times and easy for kids top.
  • Very good experience, Very friendly staff and tour guides. Exciting trip there by boat.
  • Over 800 m impressing grotto.
  • Nice but close most of the time. You definitely have to go there by the sea walk.
