Grotte del Bue Marino

The first reason to visit our territory is the famous Bue Marino cave. The Bue Marino cave has a currently ascertained total extension of 70 km. It is divided into three branches, two of which can be visited through the artificially illuminated path. The fossil north branch has been open to visitors since the 1950s and can also be reached by land via the Cala Fuili path (it is convenient to book the visit if you arrive via trekking). The south branch was opened to the public in the 1980s and you enter it for about 800 meters during the guided tour.

The name of the cave derives from the nickname with which shepherds called the Monk Seal (Su Oe Marinu), present in the waters of the Gulf of Orosei until the 1970s. The seal used the small beaches inside the karst system for weaning its cubs. The cave was also inhabited during the pre-Nuragic period. At the entrance there are petroglyphs on the rock that symbolize “The Dance of the Sun” and can be traced back to the Cult of Ozieri. For visiting: you can contact the shuttle service operated by ferries, integrate it into charter mini-cruises departing from the port or get there by renting a dinghy driven by yourself. In particular for this last option, we remind you that the visiting hours for rental dinghies are only in the afternoon.
