Caves of Drach, Porto Cristo

(6,000+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Venture beneath the earth to see one of the world’s largest subterranean lakes at Caves of Drach. The four caves sit 25 m (82 ft) underground and stretch 2.4 km (1.5 mi). Marvel at the impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations that adorn the cave floors and ceilings. Take a guided tour through the caves, which includes a boat ride across Martel Lake and ends with a four-piece live classical concert. The paths can be quite steep and slippery, so be sure to wear good walking shoes.

  • We booked this tour through our hotel cost us 45 euros per person starting from Palma, for the day. The visit to the cave lasts 1 hour, no guide, no explanation. There is nothing special or even lights. A mini concert of classical music in 10 min. Then we do 50 meters in the boat and it's over. The entrance normally costs 15 euros per adult and 8 euros per child. So no interest to do it on a day at the hotel where we left off in the shops of beads or in the factory of liquors that sell their more expensive items than elsewhere. Cave uninteresting for my taste, especially when we saw the Lascaux or Chauvet caves.

  • Horrible experience! Every hour, a maximum of 600people (?!!) enter the cave via 2 gates, causing a big rush of pushing persons. Inside the cave, there is no explanation what so ever about the cave or what you see. People rush omongst each other via a concrete path into the cave, touching whatever they can. I have never seen so much dirty stone in a cave. Soon after entering the cave, "wardens" started to look at their watch and ask people to keep walking because we were late. Deep down in the cave is a lake, with 3 boats. In 1 boat were several musicians playing nice music. All 600 people were seated to watch the show, which started while a large part of the crowd was still trying to find a seat. The show lasts about 10 minutes, after which you may continue your route, either via a small boat (5 available!) or walking. The boats bring you about 200metres away, after which all people join the same path and like kettle continue towards the exit again. This is one of the most beautiful caves I have ever seen, but it is completely being destroyed and the guest are being ignored by it's owners, only caring about income.
  • Great caves! Really enjoyed the music concert mainly because you don't normally get to be in caves in the pitch darkness! Was interesting. The only problem was the boat ride at the end. There are so many people allowed in the caves at one time that there was a huge queue and it was really cramped. It was easier to use the bridge and walk the entire way by foot.
  • Wow wow wow! Mites n tites millions of years in rhw making, live music played from a rowing boat on an underground lake. Who's not going to be impressed?
  • A magical experience!! The tours are once every hour and if you can keep up with the guide you will get a lot of interesting info. There were a lot of people on out tour so we didn't manage to hear what he said every time but we were happy to just watch and take pictures. There are several people working at the tour to make sure everyone comes along and that nobody uses flash while taking pictures. The artificial lighting carefully placed out in the caves gives off enough light for both eyes and cameras. The tour was rounded off with a live Martell concert which really moved me into tears.
  • Must see category. The tours in to the cave starts every hour, but the tickets was run out quickly so you have to arrive early. And be in the first ten in the line in the entrance. In the cave after the 15 min walk you will arrive to the lake, and take a seat . The last man of the group will arrive after 20 minutes for the lake. After this, stars the concert, be quiet. After the concert every body can get in the boat. I think The last man of the group have to wait 30-40 minutes. (in this time the next group will arrive). So it's worth 1 hour waiting, don't miss this.
