Boat prices aren't cheap. Ticket to the cave for 2 persons was 12 euros. Boot fair was 44 euros (2 adults, 1 child) for only a 10 minute trip. Caves were beautiful and guide was great!
Visiting the cave was a real wonderful experience. We took the boat from Cala Gonone which brought us to a pier built-in at the entrance to the cave. The visit took 1 hour and after we continued south, to the other beaches from Golfo di Orosei. There are three rivers that form the huge hidrological system of the cave: the South, the North and the central river system. The turistic trail is 1 km long on the south river. On the end of the tour you can see the place where the river actualy flow in to the șea. It is another entrance accesible by foot from the Cala Fuili - Cala Luna path, which get in to the North river system. The systems are conected throgh several siphons (underwater galleries). Unfortunately, the entrance in the North river system is closed for the moment because the company that manage the cave didn' found a gardian willling to cover the 45 min distance by foot x 2 each day.
Note that you have to pay for the boat transportation to the cave and the cave itself. The total price (cave and boat) for 2 adults and 2 children is about 90 eur. Otherwise it is a very nice cave, especially to see what salt and normal water can do. Highly recommended.
The history behind this cave is amazing. We loved this place more than Cala Luna. This cave is cold on the inside. Great to visit on a hot day.
Incredible place. Easy walk. Good guided tour. Fresh, but not cold. Very good light allows to make good quality fotos without any flash which is forbidden. English is as good and precise as Italian.
