Neptune's Cave - Review
Come and visit the ‘fairytale underworld’ located right in the heart of CapoCaccia Cliffside. It is known as Neptune’s Cave. According to many travelers, this cave has been considered as the ‘jewel’ of the Mediterranean basin. Enter the cave and you get to see a different world filled with water pools, stalagmites and stalactites. The stunning beauty of the cave has made it one of the top attractions of Alghero.
The most exciting part of visiting this cave is the journey. The boats sails through a passage covered with green vegetation and then it moves to vast lake. While sailing across the lake, you pass by numerous columns that rise up at times, forming into two arches. The passage then leads to this vast cave.
Visit the cave to get the perfect adventurous feel in you.

Neptune's Cave, Alghero Reviews
Arrived by car at the parking 08:40, and manage to grab the last spot. I recommend being there 08:00, to make sure. We had to wait until 08:50 before the stairs down opened, though. The stairs was definitely half the experience with fantastic views and photo opportunities. At the cave we we're around 20 persons in the first tour of the day. The guide had an accent that made hard to comprehend in English, but since the information was quite brief I think it's better to read up on the cave before (if your interested) and then just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere while being in it.
We took a boat from Alghero harbour to Neptune's Grotto which cost €15 per person for a return. Considering the journey was about an hour I thought this was very reasonable. The boat trip was exciting and provided great views of the coast of Alghero. When we arrived at Neptunes Grotto we boarded within a cave. As the water was a little choppy and the boat could not fully dock the walk way wheeled on and off the deck while we got off the boat. This must happen every day and the staff were very helpful and reassuring making sure people didn't fall into the sea. Entrance to the cave was €13 per person and once in we were taken on a guided tour, the tour lasted about 20 minutes walking through quite quickly but there were a lot of people walking single file so it was about 45 minutes by the time we had exited and got back on the boat. Thoroughly recommend, this is one of the best things that I have ever done.
Guided tour in only in English and Italian. Like few hundred people per group. First a queue for 20-30 minutes (I was there at 11am) than very slowly through the cave. Worth going but you have to be patient. Entry is 13 Euro per person. If you arrive by car at 12 -13 the traffic is huge. Very difficult to find a parking space. There are also large buses having problems to move in the traffic and blocking it all the way. My advise is go early
Beautiful, well worth a visit. If you go by foot, be prepared to go down (and up again) over 600 steps. Also, parking your car at the top is not easy. Going by boat is much more convenient, as you will disembark right at the entrance. During the summer it's pretty crowded.
The cave isn't worth the money. While it certainly is a pretty cave it still is far from being spectacular or unique. Furthermore it is massively overcrowded as people are being guided through like cattle. Entrance fee is being paid at the cave additional to the boat ride.
