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.

The cave itself is great, the tourist trap that you get put in is not. I have a hard time recommending this to anyone. The cave was amazing and so unique! I was really glad to see it. The stairs provided really great views. However, the boat was horrendously over-crowded, without proper safety gear. They smush masses of people into the cave. The tour was abysmal and teaches you nothing. It’s clearly a ploy to get tourist money. I can’t imagine how much they rake in.
Well, we have expected a natural cave, not a tourist attraction. Concrete pavement inside is a disaster. But to get there, you have to walk down and that part is amazing. Worthy to walk down, but the cave itself is very sad experience for 14 euros.
It's OK but not a show stopper Challenging walk up and down stairs from car park. Watching boats slide in and out dropping/picking up people, priceless. Cave has limestone features. If you have been to giants causeway, it's the same experience.
Definitely worth seeing! The cave is beautiful. If you are going by car, be there as soon as possible before opening. There is only very small parking lot next to the cash desk. Otherwise you'll have to park on the narrow road down the hill (you could be very far from the entrance and it's not safe for your car, trust me :D, there are buses and crazy drivers). Check in advance if the cave is open, it could be closed due to the weather!
13 Euros is far beyond what this “guided tour” is worth. There is no guide, just some pretty awful narration over some tinny speakers. The narration didn’t explain anything worthwhile or understandable, it’s a good thing I had been to other caves to explain things to my wife. They overcrowd the cave with as many people as possible, meaning you’re just slowly shuffling along in a long queue. Nothing special about this cave, try others and take a boat cruise instead from Alghero.
