  • A place to visit to enjoy an awesome sight and especially to inhale the scent of the sea. A wonderful place in any season, it seems almost magical

  • be sure to visit if you are nearby. very fun to swim inside. and the view is amazing! as we were visiting in October, there were only a few people with us, by the way, the water was quite warm.  more »
  • Never name was more appropriate. the place is really poetic, exciting and magical ... Definitely worth visiting in less crowded periods, even though in some respects the caocità of the crowd was a feature that added more than remove!!

  • Easy drive. Expect lots of people unless you choose your time. Early bird catches the worm. The gift when you arrive is a wonderful connection with the natural way the sea has weathered through the rock. Jump in and swim out into the ocean.
  • Been to Torre dell Orso many, many times and never knew this GEM was a short walk away. While walking along the cliffs I only found it because I saw a few people standing around. You do not see the SINKHOLE until you are right up to the ledge! WOW. Very impressive. Stone steps let you walk right down into the grotto!
  • A nice place to snorkle! Exciting to swim through the cave. If one does not like to jump from the cliffs down into the sea (I don't) there are some steep stairs along one side of the hole/cave. There is sadly a lot of old cigarettes and glass shards on the ground in the area. There are some old ruins close to the cave, which is worth to check uot.
  • it's a beautiful place with crystal clear water and rocky underground. take care and use solid shoes to access. there's nearly no shadow, so bring an umbrella if you don't want to be exposed to sun too much.
  • Colours of the water are incredibile. You just want to jump in!!!
