“Spectacular cave system”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Accessible by boat from Alghero or take tour bus and descend and ascend the 650 or so steps. Worth a visit but may challenge those with walking difficulties.

“Sardinia”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Although I did not find Sardinia worth visiting Grotte di Nettune was a very interesting sight. If you happen to be in Sardinia, Grotte di Nettune is a must place to see. But if you are not there, no need to go to Sardinia just to see the Grotte.

“steps , more steps”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

we very much enjoyed the trip to the caverns, hopping on the "red bus" to the peninsular.
We chose to walk down the 650 steps around the cliff face, not too strenuous for able bodied persons, easy enough going down but obviously more strenuous coming back.
the caves can also be accessed by boat but quite a thrill embarking and boarding when there is a sea swell.
wandering around the caves takes about 40 minutes on a guided tour giving useful knowledge on the formation and age of the many stalagmites/tites, events past and present in the caves and generally worth the 13 Euro paid.
After the tour you can hop back on the red bus and either travel to Alghero or stop at other places.
Definitely not an attract for people with walking difficulties and young children , buggies etc.

“Neptunes grotto”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Lovely trip. We've been to caves before but by far these were the best. The only thing I would say is its a bit rushed. You get off the boat, pay, then you follow guide in a long line,out and straight back on boat. There isn't any other way if you go by boat as only one boat can drop off at a time. If you go by land apparently there's 650 steps to climb down and back up again, no thanks! Glad we went, and would recommend. You can purchase food and drink on the boat. Not sure if it had toilets. Wouldn't think it would be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
