The cave called  “Grotta del Fico” is located in the chalky wall in Orosei between the Cala Mariolu and Cala Bigiada beaches . For thousands year an underground river has dug and modelled long and twisted tunnels. The cave had been opened in August 2003 and it is easily reachable through a system of boardwalks that allow to visit  a great part of the cave without any risk. The part of the cave known at the moment is developed through 1800 metres  but other parts are currently under exploration . Since 2006  another part of the cave has been opened , after 80 metres this part leads to a vertical well deep 40 metres where at the bottom you can admire the sea that flows outside through a submerged  tunnel called “Sifone della foca monaca” . The first attempt to explore the cave goes back to the sixties thanks to the work of a group of Sardinian speleologists whose head was the  priest  Antonio Furreddu  ; they measured the extension of the cave (more than 1200 metres) after the discovery of several canals connected with the sea. Antonio Furreddu visited the cave very often to observe  the typical inhabitant of the cave since the eighties,     the seal species named “foca monaca”.
