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.

We visited these caves on a whim after having read the Trip Advisor reviews and glad we did. It was very interesting, if a little stressful for our 3 year old who didn't like necessarily enjoy the darkness and ended up being carried by daddy most of the way.

These caves are just breathtakingly beautiful and not crowded by tourists. My boys, 8 and 10 yrs old, said they would have wanted to spend more time in there and were thrilled. Also the scenery from outside the caves on the cliff is super. There are many steep stairs so not for very small children or people who can not... More

Interesting place to see and learn more about the formation of caves, especially for people who have never visited one before. Watch your step though, the ceilings can get very low in some places and also make sure to stay with the group.

Was expecting normal tourist trail trash, but it is genuinely interesting, and jaw-droppingly amazing to look at. The few facts we gleaned were interesting, and the music show is a bit naff, but overall it is splendid. And it's just about the right length of tour. Highly recommended. 8 and 10 year old loved it.
