Not possible to hike to Bue Marino
Jul 2021 • Family
The hike towards the Bue Marino cave is very beautiful, but the trail ends in a closed gate before you get to the actual Grotto where the boats arrive - so IT IS NOT possible to reach the actual Bue Marino cave by land. We were supposed to meet friends arriving by boat at the Grotto, but this turned out to not be possible and we wasted the entrance fee.

Disappeared monk seal
Mar 2021
The boat ride is over one quarter of an hour. This bay used to be full of monk seal. Not anymore. Sad, really sad with good views.

CaCO3 + CO2 + H2O → Ca(HCO3)2 ---> What a spectacle !!!
Nov 2019
I am not entirely sure on the exact scientific precision of the title...but I know there is calcium carbonate, carbon dioxide and water.

It is truly a remarkable experience be able to see the result of millions of years of continuous formation of stalactites and stalagmites.

I think it was the first cave that I saw where it was possible to see the effect of the colours on the water when the seawater is mixing with freshwater. Beautiful!

I would suggest to go to Cala Luna on the same boat trip.

Boat trip to a cave worth visiting
Jun 2019
You can only come to the cave by boat. We were a party of 10 people so we had rented a private trip to see all the beaches. We ended with a visit to the cave. Good guidance in English. If you are visiting this coastal route then a visit to the cave is recommended.

What a wonderful experience
Aug 2019
The visit to the, so called, "Sea Oxen Grottoes" is simply exciting. A unique experience. The marine cavities are named after the Monk Seals, which used to live the place many years ago and called by the locals "sea oxen", for their shape and behaviour.
The visit is accesible to everybody by boat and is guided by experts. The stalactites, the stalagmites, the colours all around, the water sound, even the silence, if you have the chance to hear it: everythings offers an extraordinary moment close to the acient geological formation of the earth and the power of the nature.

Visit grotto del bye marino
Sep 2019 • Couples
Beautiful caves! Worthwhile to visit!

Sadly it was not allowed to take photos. This was mentioned after arrival at the caves. I would have liked to know this in advance, since I would have left my camera at home then.

If there would have been pictures available for sale, I would have bought them. This would have pleased a lot of minds I guess.

Worth your while!
Sep 2019 • Couples
We stopped at grotta del Bue Marino as part of a boat trip from Cala Gonone. You pay the extra 11 euro’s entrance fee but it’s really worth the cost and time. Impressive cave, nice facilities and staff. A must do when in Golfo di Orosei!

Proper big cave with beautiful formations

“it was lovely to see this cave around 1km long to walk in (cave is much deeper) and hear in clear English the history (nature and human).

Beautiful beach. Just the beach is made up of mostly small stones and peddles so just better to have swimming shoes!
