We went by boat from Cala Ganone, bought ticket additionally to Bue Marino with English speaking guide. Stalactites and stalagmites were incredible. Bue marino was a place where seals were giving birth to children in the past.We were not allowed to take photos unfortunately.

I felt the place was worth the 8 Euro entrance fee. It is amazing to see the history of thousands of years in a single cave, as well as how much it took to human kind to push out the previous inhabitants, monk seals (bue marino in sardu). Recommended

We rented a boat for a full day and dropped by the caves, very glad we did! Cannot take photos once deep inside the cave but definitely an experience. There is also... More

We stayed in Sardinia for two weeks. First one in Costa Rei, the second in Cala Gonone. Sardinia is not a hip and young place. Infrastructure is close to zero - few restaurants with the same menu throughout the island. I guess it is a destination for family holidays for people who are fine doing nothing but going to the...
