These caves are smaller than the Caves of Drach in Porto Cristo, and they do not have a lake in the cave, but they are none the less spectacular.the range of shapes and formations of the stalagmites and Stalagtites is amazing. Well worth a visit, these caves don't get so crowded as Drach

Great area with some beautiful scenery. Caves are impressive even if 55 minutes may be a bit long (especially with two kids aged 2 and 4). They also found the music a bit scary. But still - they seemed to enjoy the visit.

This place is amazing, the caves are beautiful and unspoilt, there aren't too many people there so you get to see everything. This is far better than the Drach Caves, also the view of the coastline is something else.

Well worth a visit. Easy to get to by road, there is parking a couple of hundred metres away and also a small car park at the entrance to the caves. We went at 10am and it wasn't busy at all. *Entry is cash only* You are taken on a tour which lasts about an hour. It's an astonishing place,... More

We hired a car and visited these caves. Although a Little pricey it was well worth a visit. We also vIsited alcudia and c'an pica fort, these are also worth a visit.

Probably, Artá is one of the best caves that can be found in Spain. Drach, in Mallorca too, is better known but, perhaps, it's known mainly because of the musical show than because of the cave itself. Artá is a pure and beautiful cave. It has a lot of stairs; wide enough to not be worrying for people suffering claustrophobia... More

An absolutely awe inspiring visit to the Caves of Arta. A beautiful walk up to the caves gives plenty of spectacular views over the bay. At 14 Euros per adult(CASH ONLY) it seems on the face of it a bit costly........But Oh Boy is it worth it!!!!!!. Full guided tour in various languages,these caves have to be seen to be... More

You're in Mallorca and want caves? Avoid Drach and go to Arta. It may be further to travel, but there's no long queuing and a very decent tour. Plus the town of Arta is nearby and definitely worth seeing.

These caves are awe inspiring. The guide is multi lingual. The tour is fantastic, the caves are incredible. It is an attraction that everyone should see it is something that will live with me forever. A real must. There is free parking and the tour costs 14 euros per adult.
