Expert review of Coves del Drac

Majorca’s biggest network of fantastical grottoes, underground lakes and rivers.

One of Majorca’s most popular attractions, this extensive network of caves and grottoes reveals resplendent shapes and forms at every turn. Look long enough and you’ll see all manner of characters carved into the stone. The highlight though is the 10-minute classical concert performed around a floodlit underground lake – one of the biggest in the world in fact – followed by a short boat-ride afterwards. It’s all very Lord of the Rings.

Price advice: 

Adults 11.50 euros, kids aged under 8 go for free.

Expert tips: 
Visits are staggered to prevent overcrowding. The best times to choose are either first tour in the morning, or last in the afternoon. Each visit lasts just over an hour.
Wear something warm, it gets chilly underground even in high summer.
