About Grotta del Bue Marino

The Bue Marino caves are coastal caves located in the territory of the municipality of Dorgali on the eastern coast of Sardinia. They owe their name from the Sardinian name of the monk seal, a marine mammal believed to have disappeared from the area due to excessive anthropogenic pressure.  More than 20 kilometers long, after a common entrance, the cave branches out into three distinct sections: the north branch, the middle branch, and the south branch.
