Caves of Drach, Porto Cristo

(3.6/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The visit to these caves is certainly very touristic but their visit with their stalactites and stalagmites, impressive, great walls and the underground river on which the musicians in a boat honor you a small concert of classical music with an extraordinary acoustic.

  • The caves are one of the best systems that my wife and I have seen around the world. There is a large number of each type of formation compared to other caves. The concert at the lake was absolutely b...  more »
  • Very rarely you have the opportunity to see the depths of the Earth and see what nature is capable of doing, forms of stalactites and stalagmites in caves are surprised, you can appreciate its grandeur and its inland lake is a very well managed spectacle of light and music. It is a must-see for the whole family if you come to Mallorca, you can not miss it.

  • 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.
