Excursions around Alghero and the North West Coast of Sardinia
An unmissable stop, for those staying in Alghero, is a visit to the Grotte di Nettuno, an underground world of incredible charm, reachable by sea or by land.
Why ? ..... Because they are the most famous and largest caves in all of Sardinia and you have to go there personally to understand their charm.
The caves can be reached by sea, by boats departing every day from the tourist port of Alghero or from the dock of Cala Dragunara in Porto Conte. The day trips can be taken from 9.30 am to 6.30 pm starting in May, for the entire duration of the summer season.
For those who want to arrive by car, it is necessary to reach the promontory of Capo Caccia and from there descend to sea level on foot via “Escala del Cabirol’ (“Billy Goat Stairs’), a set of 660 steps cut into the cliff side.
Always leaving from Alghero port, we offer excursions by catamaran or sailing boat, to discover the Riviera del Corallo, with its cliffs overlooking the sea so beautiful that they leave you breathless. You can spend an enjoyable and relaxing day at sea where it will be possible to bathe in the crystal clear and uncontaminated waters and to taste the typical local products. The Day at Sea starts by leaving from Alghero port at 9.00 am. The return is foreseen for 5 pm.
What's better than spending a day on a boat, full of fun and good food, in the company of a good book and who you love?
With direct pick-up from our Camping Village, we offer the following excursions:
A city dating back to ancient times which, due to its location, has, during the course of the centuries, always benefitted from the great attention paid by the populations that have gradually, over time, dominated Sardinia.

Stintino and Asinara island
Stintino is a small village situated right on the far tip of North-West Sardinia that boasts one of the most enchanting coasts of the entire Region, with its extremely white sand, crystal clear waters and one of the most beautiful seas of the entire Mediterranean, such as the famous ’’La Pelosa’’ beach.
The splendid Asinara Island has a surface measuring 51,23 km² and its coast stretches for 110 km. Asinara Island is truly heaven on Earth which can only be reached via sea from Stintino by means of motor vessels, sailing boats and catamarans. It is possible to choose from a wide range of excursions (by SUV, on horse-back, by bike, by wheeled train etc. ) that allow you to discover the beauty of this uncontaminated island which once hosted the maximum security prison that detained members of the Brigate Rosse terrorist group and Mafia bosses such as Raffele Cutolo and Salvatore Riina. Leaving from the campsite, the Cattogno tourism office weekly organises enjoyable trips to the Asinara Island.
