(750+ reviews on the web)
Cave Nature / Park
On a guided tour of the subterranean caves of Cuevas dels Hams, discovered in 1905, admire an impressive array of stalagmites, stalactites, and underwater lakes. Artistic lighting adds to the mysterious atmosphere of this underground world. Look for the fish hook–shaped formations to which the caves owe their name, as "hams" means "hooks" in Spanish. Your tour ends at the biggest of all the lakes, where you listen to classical music played from an animatronic gondola. After all, this lake is called the "Sea of Venice." Put Cuevas dels Hams at the forefront of your travel plans using our Porto Cristo family vacation planner.

  • I was disappointed. There was some adds about a Mozart concert inside the cave. We never saw this. Tourist trap and quite disappointing.
  • My friend and I recently visited the caves. The formations are fabulous. We did feel that the tour was rather rushed for us. We thought it was expensive but understand maintenance and staff have to be paid. We went to the caves has part of a boat trip unfortunately when we came out of the caves the coach had left without us. Thankfully a very kind lady from the cafe gave a lift to catch the boat.
  • Good experience but seems to be aimed at a German audience more than UK although the translations of videos were very well done using tech to communicate. Very expensive compared to Arta and Campanet caves.
  • A great thing to do on Mallorca when the beaches are getting too hot! Very beautiful caves with some nice videos about how they were found. Overall nice experience!
  • Terrible. So expensive for what little you get. Don't be fooled by the advertising and the entrance. It's just two small caves and some lights. Save your money and go to the Caved of Drach down the road. So much better.
