The trip out by boat gives an awesome view of the bay and cliffs. Inside the caves are very impressive and an easy 1km guided walk available in either Italia an or English when we were there.

The place is an experience!!! For only 5€ you enjoy a huge cavern where sea water and river water meet. Spectacular stalactites and stalacmites, great chambers, nice reflections and gorgeous rock formations await your visit. Friendly staff welcome you and explain you almost every secret...More

Very poorly organized, huge lines once you get off the boat. You wind up standing around for half of it, and then once you get started, very little explanation. While the walk is neat, the stalactites are not that impressive. If it’s sunny out, spend...More

Very crowded as lots of boats come in at once in the afternoon. You walk for 1 kilometer on metal walkways and get told a bit about the cave as you go. Very interesting and unique.

The part of the cave system that you can visit as a tourist stretches a kilometre into the mountain and is really cool and beautiful. In the end the seawater meters the the freshwater river that has formed the cave. A must visit!

The tour was good, but I enjoyed the Neptune Grotto in Alghero more. The walk is about 1 km each way, and we were a large group so only two stops for information, apart from the initial briefing. No photos allowed, and I did not...More

We have visited Grotto di Nuttuno and this Bue Marine. We liked the latter better. It is more spacious and gives a better impression. It can only be reached by boat, that we took from the Harbor.

There are several companies and you find them in the port at Cala Gonone. If you dont speak Italian, make sure to have an English-speaking guide. Unfortunately I did not travel further down the coast. Enjoy!
