This impressive marine cave tucked into the steep cliffs of Capo Caccia deserves the cool name. It’s like a dripping temple of stalactites and stalagmites - a moister Palace of the Snow Queen - and opens out onto a huge cavern containing the glassy, reflective surface of a 120 metre long lake of salt water.

You can reach the cave by boat or drive or catch the bus to the cliff top and negotiate the 650 stairs – down and then back up.

Once you get to the cave mouth there’s a 45 minute single file tour of the cave available which takes you along the snaking passage through many dramatically lit chambers decorated with statue like rock formations.

If you’re a diver you can get an even more Neptune like experience by diving into some of the caverns in the same complex which are hidden below the waves jsut off the coast.
