This was a great place to visit in a beautiful location. We went in April so it was not too hot and decided to hire a scooter and drive there from Alghero. This was a great option - it is not too far and you get to see more of the countryside. The 656 steps down to the cave were very manageable and are quite shallow and safe with plenty of places to stop for a rest if you need to. Our tour guide spoke very good English and gave us a great run-down of the history and geography of the caves. The caves themselves are beautiful and very atmospheric; hearing the sea crash against the cliffs outside was quite special when eveything else is so quiet and perfectly still inside. The boat was not running that day because the sea was too rough but I would still go for the scooter and stairs again.
