The cap de la Caça (Capo Caccia in Italian) is a limestone peninsula located in the province of Sasser, at the northwestern end of the island of Sardinia, within the municipal area of u200bu200bAlguer. Together with Punta del Lliri (Punta Giglio) it closes the Gulf of Port del Conte (Porto Conte), and its main face faces the bay of Somewhere Cap de la Caça owes its name to the hunts organized during the xix century by the nobility around the cape, from their boats, during the periods of calm sea.

On the cape there is the Weather Station of Cap de la Caça, and thanks to its geographical location it has a powerful lighthouse, which, from an altitude of 186 meters above sea level sea, is one of the most visible from a distance in the entire Mediterranean, approximately 34 nautical miles.

It is also known for the presence of grottoes and sea caves, mostly at the bottom of the hill, formerly a place of refuge for many groups of the Mediterranean monk seal or old sea seal (Monachus monachus ), now completely gone from the area due to the cruel hunting of fishermen in strong competition with this species.

The most famous cave, which bears the name of the god of the seas, is found at the bottom of the water in the part of the open sea and in front of Foradada Island: it is Neptune's cave. The most famous and popular, for divers, is the Nereus cave, dedicated to the father of nymphs and tritons, considered the largest submerged cave in the Mediterranean. All over the seabed we still find red coral (Corallium rubrum), used in jewelry and which strongly characterizes the craft culture of Alghero.
