Seeing this Grotto was something imaginable, worth to visit, the boat cost 15 Euros and the entrance to the Grotto 14 Euros, fantastic views inside unbelievable. The most captivating gems of nature on the mediterranean.

This is a real gem on the west cost of Sardenia. However I must say I was disapointed. Not with the caves itself - it is a beautiful example of what neture can create but with the way they organize the visit.

We booked 2 tickets for a visit at 14:00 hrs. We arrived on time, got the QR code scanned at the ticket office and went down to the cave. It was 13:55 when we arrived and the guide had already started the trip with more than 200 people before us. So, when we entered the cave the guide was in the second hall speaking to the microfon and telling stories that we could not enjoy being the the first hall.

Moreover, when the guide finished somwhere up in the hall "where musicians used to play" - she thanked all the visitors and left all the rest (standing in a lane of 100 meterls long) behind.

Ticket costs 14 euro/person and I think this is a rip off.

Shame.

Beautiful cave. Go there.
I speak English good, but I didn't understand half of the guide :(
It seemed to be interesting.

We loved the grotto but perhaps we loved the long steep walk to it even more. Those views! Tour inside was less than 30 minutes and very humid.

beautiful cave, absolutely worth visiting and the effort to go down and up tho 650 stairs, which are actually not very difficult to walk (or you can take a boat towards it)

if you come by car, park it on the side of the road where you see parked cars, as there is no official parking

tickets can be bought both at the entrance of the cave and up, at the top of the stairs (where one finds the last toilet -there are no sanitary facilities in the grotto- and a kiosk with beverages and some snacks)

a (free) reservation on the official website is highly recommended, otherwise you might get no ticket for the desired tour - there is a guided tour (in Italian, English, German and Spanish) every hour and it lasts about 35 minutes

the grotto attracts large crowds and each visiting group consists of 150-200 persons, however if you stay among the last ones you have enough time to stare at the beauties in the cave and take photos of it (and the guide has lots of interesting infos)

the temperature inside is constant around 20°C, so a summer outfit is perfect, however slippers not recommended at all, use something more solid

take water with you, and don't forget the mask, as the covid pandemic is still not over

Due to Covid we reserved a ticket in advance by calling. The person on the phone was really nice and was even able to speak great German. We could have bought a ticket at the grotto as well but it could vary depending on how full it is. You could pay with a credit card at the entrance of the stairs.

We took the 654 steps to the Grotto which you can manage in around 15 minutes. The way down is really nice with great views of the ocean and cliff. If you are not good at climbing stairs, I would recommend taking a boat.

Luckily we took part in the first guided tour at 10 am. People from a few smaller boats and walkers were there already but luckily the tour at 10am seemed to take place before the arrival of the really big and crowded tourist boats. When we came back around 200 people arrived. I would recommend taking part in the first tour at 10 if you don't loo Ike crowds.
The tour guide talked in Italian, German and Spanish since they had microphones in the grotto he was easy to understand.

The grotto itself has a good size and the reflections in the water were very cool. In general it is a really nice grotto to visit.

The grotto was very beautiful. First you have to walk the 654 stairs down. The walk is also beautiful. The tour was very sort and hard to understand because they accept very big groups at the same time. You only see 200 meters in the grotto.
After the tour you have to walk the 654 stairs up.
Every hour one tour starts. I think it’s a must see.

The part of the cave open for visitors is very small and not as exciting as xpected, at least compared to some other caves I’ve visited. The best part od the tour are the stairs and spectacular view of the clifs from the stairs (hint, you do not need to buy tickets to walk the stairs). Really annoying part of the tour was the guide who talked a lot in Italian, a bit in German and not a word in English. So all if you who don’t understand Italian or German - bad luck for you. I would not buy the ticket again.
