Showcases can be an anticlimax, or touristy in the extreme this is neither and well worth the entry fee, have never felt quite so awed by a load of stalactites! The guided tour was interesting but then we also had freedom to wander towards end of the visit. Quieter than some sites of other caves in mallorca.

This is well worth a visit even although it is very busy - transport to and from via local bus services is excellent

This was the first cave I visited and I was quite impressed. I found the lighting to be beautiful and quite a technical feat when you consider that the cave is over 5 million years old. Our guide was multilingual (Spanish, English, French, German) and certainly knew his stuff. My wife doesn't like closed places, she's a bit claustrophobic, but... More

I have visited Cave de Drach and also Cave de Arta, my personal favor is Cave de Arta. For couple reasons, it is more light installed, easy to see the structures, The is guide tour service, it didn't talk in deep, not in the geological language and you get a sense of the names of the structures and understand basic...

These caves are well worth a visit, the caves and the views from outside are amazing overlooking the bay are outstanding! The tour cost 13euros each and lasted half an hour but we felt this was worth the money. Take your camera as lots to take pictures of!

Quite incredible and a must see. We walked from Playa Canyamel. 20 mins or so but quite a trek for those not so mobile. If achievable it is well worth walking as the views on route are fantastic. If not you can drive or get the bus as there is parking when you arrive. Paying the 13 euros only becomes... More

We only had to wait 3 minutes for the next tour to start (apparently other more advertised caves in the area can have very long queues). Plenty of parking, either down at the caves entrance or 2min walk up the road. The guide was excellent, spoke in German,Spanish and English throughout. It has the tallest stalactite in Europe and even... More

These are truly magnificent natural caves. We'd only chosen to go these as the weather wasn't behaving itself and we needed to keep busy. So glad we did. Drove to the caves, parked up and walked the short road to the caves entrance. Price of admission seemed a little on the dear side for a cave, however it's well worth... More
