ph Matteo Andreozzi
Capo Caccia is situated a few kilometres from Alghero, on the southern point of a huge limestone triangle that wedges out into the sea. There are characteristic, impressive cliffs (nearly 300 m high) on its west side. Capo Caccia is renowned for the underground labyrinth of mysterious caves discovered in 1700. The most famous one is Grotta di Nettuno (2500 m long) that can be reached by sea or on ground climbing the 656 steps of Escala del Cabirol that lead to the cave. There is a beautiful transparent lake (La Marmora) with two small sandy beaches just at its entrance. Capo Caccia is one of the wildest places in Sardinia.
