Cagliari: Full-Day Tour of Cala Luna & Sea Oxen Grottoes

4. Cagliari: Full-Day Tour of Cala Luna & Sea Oxen Grottoes

Here, once reigned “sea oxen” as the locals used to call monk seals due to their tapered shape and tame behavior like that of an ox. These magnificent mammals, now (maybe) extinct, gave their name to a marvel of nature: the Sea Oxen Grottoes (Grotte del Bue Marino), since the 50s one of the main attractions of the Gulf of Orosei, in particular Cala Gonone in Dorgali territory. Today, it is a favorite destination among nature lovers, and the ideal union between sea and mountain, as they are part of the karst system of Codula di Luna, Italy’s largest 70 kilometer of tunnels in the bowels of Gennargentu. Its majestic entrance, formed by two arches over the sea, is located 2 kilometers away from splendid Cala Luna. The marine caves are 15 kilometers long in total and divided into two main branches. The northern branch, fossilized due to the interrupted karstic activity, is not accessible to the public. However, you will also be able to visit the southern branch thanks to illuminated causeways for about 900 meters. Speleologists are allowed to explore an additional 4 kilometers (of the overall 5 of this branch). Seawater penetrates the wide hall, and countless little ponds of sweet water from subterraneous rivers abound, separated from sandy beaches filled with concrete formations. The tourist itinerary among stalactites and stalagmites will offer an extraordinary color spectacle, thanks to the light beams penetrating it. You cannot help but gasp in awe at the long shadows projected onto the waters of a subterranean saltwater lake with more than one square kilometer of surface.  The cave is also famous for esoteric rock paintings, dated back to the Neolithic, illustrating a circle of people around what is supposedly a representation of the sun. The walk finishes in the seal beach – these sea mammals once came here to mate and have their cubs. The visit will be led by expert guides and last about 1-hour. Leaving the Cala Gonone Harbor for an amazing boat tour until the caves. After the visit, it will be possible to stop at the Cala Luna for swimming in this little slice of paradise.

From Cagliari: Full-Day Alghero Tour Experience

9. From Cagliari: Full-Day Alghero Tour Experience

Departing from Cagliari, drive for 2.5-hours in a minivan through the amazing Sardinian countryside towards the northwest of the island. Explore one of Sardinia's most beautiful medieval cities on a tour of Alghero, the island's main resort town in the northwest. Discover its unique character and proud, independent spirit. The historic center is an animated place to hang out, with many excellent restaurants and bars. It's an ideal base for exploring the beaches and beauty spots of the nearby Riviera del Corallo. The main focus of attention will be the picturesque centro storico (historic center), one of the best preserved in Sardinia. Enclosed by robust, honey-colored sea walls, it's a tightly knit enclave of shady, cobbled lanes, Gothic palazzi (palaces) and piazzas lined with cafes. Discover the historical center with an expert local guide on a stroll through the city center. Discover Capo Caccia and the Neptune Caves, one of the most fascinating natural jewels in the entire Mediterranean basin, the grotto is a veritable geological wonder that attracts over 150,000 visitors per year. It is accessible by sea leaving the tourist port every day, or on foot via Escala del Cabirol (billy goat stairs), a set of 660 steps cut into the cliff side. The tour will begin at the great room holding the transparent waters of Lago Lamarmora (Lake Lamarmora), one of the largest saltwater lakes in all of Europe. It is there that Acquasantiera stands (the baptismal font), a monumental stalagmite that is approximately 2 meters high; its peaks have formed vats, where rainwater collects, thereby forming a precious drinking fountain for birds nesting in the Capo Caccia area. After a brief descent, you will reach the Sala delle Rovine (Room of Ruins) and after this, the Majestic Reggia, the most evocative area of the grotto. Impressive and overwhelming columns arise in this room, almost holding up the ceiling. Among the large flowstone and "scallop" formations, the distinctive stalagmite formation known as the Albero di Natale (Christmas Tree) stands out. The lake comes to end at a sandy beach called the Spiaggia dei Ciottolini (Pebble Beach) because at one time it was made up of tiny stones. After the Reggia, you will find Sala Smith (Smith Room), where the Grande Organo (Great Organ) can be found, the largest column in the entire grotto. This room is named after the English captain who in the early 1800s had been one of the first to explore the grotto. After having taken in the small columns that adorn the Sala delle Trine e dei Merletti (The Lace Room), the route will come to an end with a view of Tribuna della Musica (The Music Gallery), an evocative balcony from which you can enjoy the view from above the Reggia area and Lake Lamarmora.

A great experience, really memorable, and fun for us all.

Firstly, huge thanks to our guide, driver and boatman, Junior. He had an excellent knowledge and shared it with us in an understable way that added interest without overburdening us with facts. The trip itself was absolutely brilliant. Starting with the boat trip, the boat was good and the stood to allow us to swim in crystal clear waters with snorkelling kit Junior lent us meant we could see the many fishes in a way we've never experienced before. The lunch was great and worth the extra. The trip up into the mountains gave us views we would not have experienced alone nor with a tourist coach. It gave us an appreciation why Junior loves Sardinia so much. It's a great place. Thanks so much to Junior and the team that put this together. Our group was two fresh out of uni and us, the rather older parents, and all of us thought it was great. Thanks!

A dream day!

Junior with the boat in the morning and maths in the afternoon with the jeep showed us great places in the pula - chia - tuerreda area, where you can linger wonderfully. The lunch was actually well prepared ... but be careful: dishes with "bottarga" are not intended for every palate, very, very salty and fishy in taste, which we didn't really like. But the sumptuous starter (salado di polpo) was actually enough to fill you up. Would book the trip again!

The pick up location was around the corner from what is stated on this website, but give the local operator and call to confirm. Our guide was great, he even provided fresh figs. Took us to four swimming spots around the island. Water is stunning and sun was beaming - saw plenty of wildlife. Exactly what we wanted - bring a snorkel.

wonderful experience ❤️ we celebrated a hen party and we had a great time.Thanks to our skipper who despite the windy day managed to take us to beautiful places. We will definitely be back for other excursions too ❤️

An excursion to do absolutely, beautiful beaches, fantastic skipper Toto thank you
