Well worth a visit. We drove there, 20 mins from Cala Rajada. It is also possible to get a boat trip from Cala Rajada which leaves at 10:30am and returns at 13:30. The caves are very cavernous with stalagmites which must be 10s or 100s of millions of years old. A tour costs EUR 13 and lasts about 40 mins.

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
