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.

  • We went to visit this cave because I read an opinion that had nothing to envy to the cave of Drach. Not be in that relied on writing this opinion. First we will visit the blue cave which is called so because this illuminated in an annoying blue where explain you a little about the cave and put a video on the theory of genesis. In this part there is no training of any kind. Then visit the cave which has a few small formations in corners. The famous hooks are little ones in a corner. And so all the rooms that are really rinconcitos. All nice a small lake where they make a spectacle of opera seems rather the competence of the Lake from the caves of Drach. And there ends a visit fast of €21!. If I what to know failure to pay or joke. The environment of the cave is nice that if. When you get make you a photo of welcome that you then sell out for €8. It's pure and simple business. With the entrance, we invite you to a bleeding and a few peanuts, but it is better they outside the entrance fee and is ahorrasen the invitation although in my opinion the visit not voucher or € 5. If you like the beautiful caves better not go directly go to the caves of Arta these if they are impressive.

  • 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.
