Grotta del Bue Marino

Since the 50’s, the main attraction of Cala Gonone has been the “Grotta del Bue Marino”.

Since then it has been admired by millions of tourists. The queen of this cave was in fact the “marine ox": so, popular imagination named it the monk seal because of its awkward shape and warm behaviour. 

Today visitors come to the cave in our boats, they can access the south branch and walking along a smooth walkway, they can find themselves admiring one of the most beautiful and famous caves in Italy.

The visit inside lasts about an hour, during which experienced guides are available to provide scientific and historical information about the cave and the wildlife that inhabited it. If you choose to only visit the “Grotta del Bue Marino”, the total duration of the excursion is approximately 2 hours including the return journey and the visit inside (duration 1 hour).

You can combine your visit to the cave with other scheduled trips, see COMBINATION and MINI CRUISE, in which case the duration depends on the itinerary chosen.
