This is a pleasant tour taking about an hour. Make sure you keep near the front close to your guide or you might miss some of the explanations. It's a gentle stroll along walkways with regular stops for explanations of the different formations. Take a...More

The famous Grotta del Bue Marino is divided in two parts. The southern part is the one accessible by boat, very touristic. The Northern branch of the Grotta is much less known and only accessible by foot, via a small trail starting in Cala Fuilli...More

We'd visited the harbour the day prior and saw that most of the excursions for the Grotta only (rather than mini-cruises of the caves and other beaches etc) left around 11am. So we walked down to the harbour about 10.30am and paid €20 each for...More

Only reachable by boat you will see a beautiful active stalactite cove. One kilometer of impresive rock formations and multilingual guidance will round this excursion. No climbing boots necessary. 20€ is fair for the boat trip and entrance.

We booked this as a boat tour that took us first to the grotto and then to Cala Luna. The Grotto tour was great. Once there they split the group into either Italian or English speaking tour guide groups. Our guide spoke English perfectly and...More

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!
