Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worth a day trip out. Inside the caves you’ll see some great stalagmites and stalactites, nice reflections in the pools and a guide who’ll explain how old the caves are, how they were found etc. If you have time there is also the opportunity to walk the 650 steps to the top of the rock formation (obviously you’ll need to walk back down to get your boat back)

Visiting the cave was a really wonderful experience, especially when the temperature outside hits 35 degrees since early morning. Direct boat. Easy walk. The tour inside the cave is very well organized. Great guide both in english and italian. The thcket for Bue Marino Cave is also valid for visiting the Archeological Museum in Dorgali.

This cave is truly beautiful, and the kilometer walk through it is magical. It has a nice selection of stalactites, but the main focus is on understanding how a river slowly carved out a system of over 70 kilometers of caves by the sea. The guide was very good and gladly answered all our questions.

We walked from the beach at Cala Fuili, told that it wa 40 minutes, it took us a bit longer but we carried a baby with us and had to stop for looking for the route. It is not very clear how to walk and where the grotta is. But if you follow the red/white signs and keep on following the path you will arrive.
The grotta really disappointed us after this long and quit hard walk. It is small and we couldn’t go further in. Maybe it is different then where the boats come?
The way back was easier and we did that in 40 minutes. Bring enough water and prepare for soms climbing!

Impressive grotto directly by the sea. You need an admission ticket, which you can buy, among others in the port of Cala Gonone. The cave is well lit and can only be entered with a guide. Guided tours are in English or Italian. Inside are impressive dripstone formations. Photography is allowed only without the flash. It is a little bit cold in the cave.

The hike towards the Bue Marino cave is very beautiful, but the trail ends in a closed gate before you get to the actual Grotto where the boats arrive - so IT IS NOT possible to reach the actual Bue Marino cave by land. We were supposed to meet friends arriving by boat at the Grotto, but this turned out to not be possible and we wasted the entrance fee.

The boat ride is over one quarter of an hour. This bay used to be full of monk seal. Not anymore. Sad, really sad with good views.

I am not entirely sure on the exact scientific precision of the title...but I know there is calcium carbonate, carbon dioxide and water.

It is truly a remarkable experience be able to see the result of millions of years of continuous formation of stalactites and stalagmites.

I think it was the first cave that I saw where it was possible to see the effect of the colours on the water when the seawater is mixing with freshwater. Beautiful!

I would suggest to go to Cala Luna on the same boat trip.

You can only come to the cave by boat. We were a party of 10 people so we had rented a private trip to see all the beaches. We ended with a visit to the cave. Good guidance in English. If you are visiting this coastal route then a visit to the cave is recommended.
