"Caves of Drach" Porto Cristo by mindcrime

Porto Cristo Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 54 photos

Porto Cristo a small port town on the eastern coast of Mallorca island, 67km from Palma de Mallorca and 13km from Manacor the biggest near by city.

The town of Porto Cristo don?t really attracts visitors itself and it seems that tourism isn?t the main income for them but numerous tour bus arrive for the near by impressive caves. Eastern coast of Mallorca is full of caves that can be visited like Cuevas del Drach and Coves dels Hams.

We decided to visit Cuevas del Drach (they are the most famous anyway), we went there early in the morning, we bought our ticket (12euros) and waited for the next guided tour to start. Although I?ve read that it gets packed by people it was almost empty at about 10.00 with only 2 buses with tourists.

There is a guide that walks slowly into the caves for about 800 meters and explains some things on several stops until we reached an area with a lake where people stand on benches, the lights go down and then you listen to some classical music while some boats are coming! After a while you realize that the music is coming from people on the boat that play in front of you for 15?.

After the small show you can take a small ride with the boat or just walk outside and visit the town where you can walk along the natural harbor or the marina. Although we saw some cafes and restaurants we didn?t spend much time here and drove to other parts of the island.
