The Caves of Drach are a series of four massive caverns found in the island of Mallorca (Known as Majorca locally). This island is a part of the Balearic Island chain close to the Spanish city of Valencia. These caverns are well known to attract adventure seekers from around the world year round.

The caves were discovered hundreds of years ago and are mentioned as early as the 14th century. The traditional Spanish name for the caves are Cuevas Del Drach, The Dragon Caves.

We’ve compiled a list of information and fun activities to take part in while visiting this gorgeous destination.

Highlights:

  • Have the opportunity to visit the well known Mallorca pearl shop
  • Learn more about this natural wonder and the island’s history
  • Explore and experience the vast Caves of Drach

  • Be sure to eat beforehand as lunch is not included on the tour
  • The Caves of Drach are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible
  • Pickup and transport to the caves is included

The Drach Caves are famous for their beautiful rock formations and unique look. The cave networks contain Europe’s largest underground lake. This lake, known as the Martel Lake, has slowly formed into what it is today over thousands of years.

The four main caves that make up the Caves of Drach are known as the Black, White, Luis Salvador and French Cave.

The island of Mallorca itself is found in the warm Mediterranean Sea close to Spain’s mainland. It’s well known for its sheltered coves, ancient Moorish landmarks and unique landscape.

The tours offered for the Caves of Drach see many tourists annually. They usually last either full day or half day and approach the caves from one of the separate entrances.

Caves of Drach Tour Prices 2021

The Caves of Drach prices usually start at around €38 ($42) upwards to €44 ($49). This depends on if the tour is full day or half day and what is included within the package itself.

The prices are also affected by whether the tours are booked in the busy summer season or in the off winter season.

Times

The Caves of Drach are open from as early as 9AM on weekdays and close at around 5PM. During winter the caves only open later at 10:30AM and close earlier at 3:30PM.

It should also be noted that the caves remain closed for the entire day on the 1st of January and the 25th of December.

Monday – Friday: 9am – 5pm
Saturday – Sunday: 10am – 5pm

Best Time to Go

The best time to go to the Caves of Drach if you’re travelling on a budget is during the winter and autumn months when prices are cheaper. Flights to the island of Mallorca are usually cheaper during this time as well.

Crowds are also much smaller during this period of time. However the best season to travel to Mallorca is debatable. In summer the scenery of Mallorca is beautiful and it’s the perfect time to explore the island and its rich history.

The Porto Cristo Caves

The town of Porto Cristo located on the eastern coast of Mallorca has some of the highest concentration of caves on the island itself. The Porto Cristo caves are comprised mainly of the four main Drach Caves as well as the impressive Coves Dels Hams.

This region is well known for its natural beauty. Many tourists flock to this island during the summer months to enjoy the warm Mediterranean ocean waters and the laid-back lifestyle of the town itself. There are also many hiking trails throughout the island to enjoy at your convenience.

The Caves of Drach Options

There are many different options available to tourists when it comes to tours in the Mallorca Caves of Drach. Most of the tours available are either half day or full day.

The Caves of Drach Half Day Tour From The South

The Caves of Drach half day tour from the South is a great option for those staying in Porto Cristo for their holiday. The average duration of this tour is around 4 hours long. You’ll learn lots of interesting facts and local stories about the caves from your enthusiastic local guide. Pickups from your accommodation are also included, making it a convenient trip.

The tour slowly takes you through each atrium until eventually bringing you to the main attraction, a live classical concert at Martel Lake. This is a real once-in-a-lifetime experience, with the acoustics in the caves elevating the music to something otherworldly.

What we liked: This particular tour is fantastic for a relatively quick trip through the caves.

Caves of Drach Full Day Tour From The North

This full day tour allows you to experience the caves to their fullest. It begins in the northern entrance to the cave networks and takes you through beautiful areas filled with stalactites and stalagmites.

The northern entrance to the caves is easily accessible from the small town of Porto Cristo. It does however provide a significant change in scenery when compared to the other entrances.

Light shows bounce off the cave walls throughout this trip, illuminating the spectacular interior of the caves. This tour is best suited for someone looking to spend more time experiencing the Drach Caves.

There are also parts of the cave where you can cross the Martel Lake by boat. This creates a truly surreal experience having to use a boat to travel across a lake underground.

What we liked: This tour allows you to experience the cave for a longer period of time.

INCLUDES:
  • Prepaid entry into the caves
  • Allows you to skip the ticket line
  • A live tour guide to lead you through the caves

EXCLUDES:
  • Lunch is not included in the trip
  • Limited wheelchair access
  • Gratuities

    There was no problem with the pick up , 15 mins late but that is the usual with trips. The caves were stunning, the concert was so beautiful.There was a big queue for the boat which only takes you about 100 yards but it is nice. Outside there is no time to get any food and drink its straight back on the bus. All in all it was a nice morning out and I recommend it.

    A great way to spend a half a day Overall a really nice trip to the caves. Breath-taking views and certainly a beautiful concert at the end. Perhaps too crowded, and people were being rushed to move forward all the time, but I suppose that is just like with any other popular location. In terms of cons, this is for the organizers: 1. It's fantastic that your guide Sebastian knows (or at least learned by heart) so many languages, but believe me when I tell you – it is freaking exhausting to listen to the same stuff being told in 5 languages on the already exhausting bus trip to the caves. Simply not necessary. I'd say, stick to Spanish and English, most will understand. Better yet – produce some proper flyers – you won't need to bother blabbering all the way, and passengers won't be annoyed. 2. No one cares for the fancy houses of Mallorca famous sportsmen. Talk about the caves! 3. No one cares for the silly pearl shop. Clearly some money agreement with you and them. I'd rather spend that extra time at the caves!

    Enjoyable trip, amazing caves! My family enjoyed this well organised excursion. Air-conditioned coach picked us up promptly from our resort. Caves were awesome. There was a little bit of queuing but nothing to worry about. The sheer scale of the caves and the rock formations took our breath away. Loved the classical music at the end. The two male members of the party could have lived without the pearl factory/hard sell stop, hence only 4 stars given. However if this is not your bag there is a reasonably priced cafe there to wile away the time. The tour guide was efficient, if a little bossy – I felt like I was back at school again, but all in all a very memorable and interesting day. Would recommend for families.

    The most interesting part for us was the concert! The caves didn't make huge impress for us because we have seen few in other countries. However the lake under the cave and the concert were impressive. Besides, it took quite long to wait for boat, because we wonted to take a sail, however the way was really shot – it event didn't take a 5 min. So as entertainment it was nice, however we waited about 25 min to sail approximately few hundred metres on lake. It would be really nice to have a longer sail 🙂
