Caving is in most cases an activity reserved for people with specific training, but not in the case of the Punta degli Stretti cave.The entrance to the cave is hidden from view and was discovered, by chance, when the construction of the small railway that was supposed to dispose of the loads of minerals from Porto Santo Stefano was being carried out.
The peculiarity of this cave is that it is horizontal, there are only 3 meters of difference in height, near at sea level and flooded by fresh water, therefore accessible and walkable by anyone!
The cave is just under a kilometer long and consists of corridors interspersed with large chambers, small flooded canyons and beautiful ponds decorated everywhere with limestone concretions dome stalactites and stalagmites, columns and deposits that sometimes take strange shapes.
Inside, the temperatures are constant, pleasant, and allow you to walk it in all seasons.
Equipped with neoprene wetsuits, helmets and headlamps, entering the underground world is a unique and wonderful experience, which allows you to experience ancestral sensations of discovering enchanted, almost fairytale environments.
There are also some animals typical of these environments such as bats, almost always confined to the initial part; the dolicopota, an insect very similar to crickets and some rarer amphibians and crustaceans.

In the cave it is not recommended to bring anything beyond the necessary equipment, because the risk of it getting wet is high.
We recommend having a good breakfast in the morning.
Once the hike has begun, you can only eat again at the end of the route.
To eat at the end of the excursion, you can bring a packed lunch to leave in the car, or eat in one of the many restaurants or refreshment points in the area.
After the trip to the cave, it is possible to continue the day on the beautiful beaches of Feniglia or Tombolo, visit the seaside villages of Orbetello, Porto Santo Stefano or Porto Ercole or devote yourself to birdwatching of the many species of birds present in the lagoon.
It is also possible to reach Saturnia (about 1 hour by car) and spend a few hours in the hot thermal water pools.
