Overview
More
World famous, are visited since 1898; inside is lake Martel, considered one of the largest underground lakes in the world, where live classical music concerts are performed every day. You can cross the lake on a boat at the end of the concert. BEWARE, there are two caves to visit in Porto Cristo, the largest and more frequently visited are the Caves of Drach. We advise to get tickets online from our web page, cheaper than at the ticket office and you don´t need to print it. Check carefully that you are at the real Cuevas del Drach, not at another caves nearby with confusing road panels, simulating to be Cuevas del Drach. On high season we advise strongly to book online from Cuevas del Drach official web site, with an small discount and ensuring your entry time.

Amazing rock formations and the underground river is amazing it’s well lit and really emphasised the rocks and water. The classical music on boats is a nice touch. The large groups make it hard to capture good photos as everyone is on top of each...More

These caves are great. I thought it was a bit expensive to get in 15.50 euros but it was really worth it. We couldn't believe how big they were. The boat ride at the end was a great little extra. We arrived at 10.30am and...More

The caves are one of a kind. They take 1-1.5 hours to walk around. A short concert at the end takes the breath away. Although there are rules not to use flash photography there are still plenty of lit up areas to capture without using...More

Plenty of parking and relaxation areas while you wait for your tour to begin. Walkways and steps (plenty of these) all have good handrails and are well surfaced. The caves are stunning, beautifully illuminated, vast yet intricate in their formation. Visits take place on the...More

A nice bus journey to reach Porto Christi and the caves. Well organised and a pleasurable time had by all. Inside the caves were lovely and cool and the music from the main cave was a nice touch. Worth a visit.

Makes Kent's Cavern look like a garden shed. BUT Just a 15 minute walk through the caves. No audio/talk/description/commentary. The orchestra playing at the end is nice, but the lack of human interaction is not good really. Far from a "must do" these days.More

Thank you very much for your commentaries. To make the whole visit, 1.200 metres of paths, a 10 minutes concert and a boat trip though Lake Martel in 15 minutes is unthinkable. The visit is not guided, an informative leaflet is provided before the visit...More

Did we see the caves? Yes. Did we hear nice classical music? Yes. Do we think it was worth the €15 ticket price? Sort of. The main problem is that there's too many people in the caves at any one time - I personally would...More

As @iulian said! Plus be aware that the path and stairs can be covered by small amount of water or humidity, making the walk a bit slippery in some cases.
