Neptune's Cave, Alghero Reviews

  • Astonishing place! Travelled by bus from Alghero and was unsure of the 3 hour window to visit the cave and head back to town (arrive at 10 am return at 1pm) but it was more than enough time. Going down stairs leading to the cave was an amazing experience, great views and plenty of handles to hold on to for those who need them. The way back can be challenging but you should reach the top easily with few breaks taken in between. The cave: impressive and magnificent, the entrance a little bit overpriced from my point of view (£13 adult, £7 child) but worth it. A must short trip to do whilst in Alghero.

  • Amazing piece of natural artwork. Staff were friendly, everyone spoke good English! However we spent €15 each for the boat and then were charged another €13 to go inside the cave. This was not made clear at the time as personally I don’t think it was worth the €28 each we paid!

  • Visited July 2017 - amazing and frankly incredible. It's a long walk along the steps, more unfit/older people may struggle a bit in the heat but there are places to stop and some shade along the way but it is truly worth the walk. It can be very busy though - particularly if one of the boat trips arrives as you get there. The boat obviously is easier if not up to the steps. It is honestly stunning inside.

  • Nice cave but there is only possible to visit this place in guided tour that takes 45min. It's to long for such small cave. 13euro per person

  • De 'grottta' is beautiful to see. Just to walk in and out. Unfortunately you can only visit it with a tourguide/ tour, that is too crowded (50 persons in a small gave), boring (especially for young people) , and has too long stories in German and Italian and just a bit in English. How can you make something that is beautiful ugly. If you want to see it anyway, take the tour, see the first gave (also the biggest), leave the group and go back.
