Cuevas dels Hams, Porto Cristo

2.8
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Porto Cristo
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.

    The caves are cute, but nothing spectacular for those who have already visited caves in Italy, but the heaviest part in my opinion is the price 20 euros for a ride with two projections/documentary. Would not stay there again

    If the site looks welcoming, we are quickly disappointed by the visit. Three video projections in the cave. We have the impression that we're playing the watch. We have already visited much better. The passage of the boat is rather very breakfast. For the price, it is close to the tourist flight, you lose your turn.

    Apart from the €21 of ticket that I am crazy for an hour's visit, the first play video on Genesis shortly have to do with the natural environment of the caves, looks more like a video to "fill" a few minutes x stay there. beautiful colors of lights, but probably with neutral lights are most appreciated the naturalness of the final grotte...il with the Venetian boat in the underground lake found just trash.chi visited Frasassi or similar will find these caves lot " normal ".

  • Very interesting cave system to visit. The venue is very well organised and the tour runs seamlessly with just the right amount of time to see everything. Tours are offered is every major language and facilities and staff are very good. It is well worth a visit but can be a little expensive given general prices on the island but still worth the money.
  • Route for visitors very short but very well prepared. All very nicely illuminated. Cool animations especially displayed on the rocks. The whole tour with a guide. Finally a nice surprise.
  • Caves are impressive. The tour is not so impressive with needless video projection on cave wall. The place is over the top commercialised and makes you feel like just another stupid tourist.
  • Good light show, with projections. Very nice experience, and included a delicious sangria tasting. Not sure if 21 euros should be the fee. But totally recommend.
  • Neat caves with cool lighting and colors having done Drach first I thought that was better overall but hams was a fun experience as well with nice staff a bit over the top touristy/tacky with certain things
