I've visited a few caves around the world but nothing compares to the caves at Arta. From the moment we entered the massive first chamber we were all awe struck. The sheer size of the complex and the detail of the formations were almost too much to take in. I have also visited the caves at Cristo Pinto (covas de... More

There are many great places to visit in northern Majorca and the Coves d'Arta are among the best. Breath-takingly impressive grottos, well presented on a tour that is neither too short nor too long. If you don't go on an organised tour try to arrive early so parking is easy and take cash, I don't think cards are accepted. Much... More

I first came to these caves when I was 5 years old, and going back 25 years later they were just as enchanting and magical. The caves have been attracting visitors for hundreds of years and it's easy to see why. Guides are very informative and provide a really interesting history of the formation of the caves.

It was very interesting to see and understand how old this place, be able to see something what was there for 1000s of years.

We really enjoyed these caves, we'll worth a visit, if you are in the area it's a must. The guide was knowledgeable and was able to answer our questions as it wasn't busy on our visit.

Beautifull caves, no underground lake here if you are looking for one, but nice views in any case. If you are visiting caves on mallorca, one is sufficient.

Great caves with amazing formations. Easy to get to and park with a sort walk down to the entrance. €13 per adult. Children under 7 are free. Takes between 30 and 40 minutes. The guide spoke English, German, French and Spanish. He could have spoken louder and given more of a history but really it's the amazing formations that do... More

What a great find! The views around the caves are breathtaking and you could spend time just soaking up those crystal blue waters and serene atmosphere. Then the caves itself. Beautiful, jaw dropping and awe inspiring. Can you tell how much we loved it? Its a must see and i would recommend going after 3 as that was the time... More

An excellent visit, well worth the time to go and see this if its the only thing you actually do while in Majorca especially if you include the boat trip as well.
