The Cuevas del Drach stands as one of Europe’s largest cave systems, conveniently situated on the eastern coast within walking distance of Porto Cristo. Although knowledge of the cave dates back to the Middle Ages, it wasn’t comprehensively mapped until the arrival of the French geologist E.A Martel in 1896. In his honor, the expansive lake at the end of the tour bears his name.

Exploring this cave takes approximately one hour, as it stretches over 1,200 meters in length and reaches depths of 25 meters. The cave maintains a constant temperature of 21°C with 80% humidity. A well-marked path guides visitors through this mesmerizing underground realm adorned with striking stalactites and stalagmites. Thoughtful illumination enhances the natural wonders, including an underground river that leads to a cavern brimming with pristine lakes.

One of the most unique experiences here is the invitation for visitors to sit in a natural concert hall within the cave and enjoy classical music performances, which are played from a boat.

The Cuevas del Drach offers ample amenities such as free parking, a café, picnic areas, a souvenir shop, and complimentary Wi-Fi to enhance your visit.
