Beautiful Italian underwater worlds are found on the mainland and its islands as well. The island of Sardinia, especially around the city of Cala Gonone, is a cave diving hotspot. The caves are accessible by boat only, and local dive shops, such as Base 1 Sardinia, offer excellent service and trips in the area. The possibility of boat trips depends on weather, wind, and especially swell. In conclusion, visibility within the caves is typically good, although the entrance area could have milky situations.

Bel Torrente, Sardinia

Bel Torrente cave must be accessed by boat, with large rocks lying in front of the entrance. Once you dive over them, you’ll notice the cave entry with a diameter of around 4 meters. Oysters and small mussels decorate the entry area. Typically, the water is a bit milky in the beginning. Sea grass grows on the bottom, and eroded limestone completes the picture to create a somewhat mystic environment.

After a short while, you will see and feel fresh water flowing out of the cave. Therefore, you can observe the fascinating mirror-like interface called a halocline. Within the fresh water, the view is magnificent, and the water is typically crystal clear. From this point, the actual cave starts to appear. Enormous halls, caught in the glow of your primary light, reveal the full shape of the cave. Different shapes of stone and stalactites provide insights into the evolution of this system. In conclusion, it’s a very nice place to explore Italian underwater worlds.

Del Fico underwater worlds, Sardinia

Del Fico cave must be accessed by boat, and it boasts a spectacular entry. After a short swim through on top of snow-white sand, you emerge into a huge dry cave. From there, you have to lay your primary reel to enter the cave and connect to the mainline. In the second part of the cave, the dimensions become smaller and are very beautiful. In other words, Del Fico is one of my favorite underwater worlds in Sardinia.
