The Drach caves are some of the largest of the island, thanks to their nearly 2,400 metres of length and a maximum depth of 25 metres under the sea. The Drach Caves are actually four caves connected to each other called the French caves, Louis Salvador, the White Cave and the Black Cave. They are formed by the entrance of seawater and it is believed they date from the Miocene period. Inside them is one of the worll's largest underground bodies of water, Martel Lake, which measures 117 metres long by 30 metres wide. The lake has a temperature of 17°C and is slightly salty: proof of its connection with the Mediterranean Sea. Classical music concerts featuring works by Caballero, Chopin and Offenbach, among others, are offered on a daily basis. After the concert, visitors can enjoy a brief boat ride on the lake to conclude the approximately one-hour visit, if they wish. Wondrous, illuminated stalactites and stalagmites can be admired during the tour of the cave thanks to the work of engineer Carlos Buigás in 1935. Opening hours: November 1 to March 31, 10.45 am, 12.00 noon, 2.00 pm and 3.30 pm. Visit without concert at 4.30 pm. April1 to October 31, at 10.00 am, 11.00 am, 12.00 noon, 2.00 pm, 3.00 pm, 4.00 pm and 5.00 pm. Closed: December 25 and 1 January.

  • The Drach Caves

    much nicer than the Caves of Hams, however this means that it is also really busy. The caves had more interesting stalagtites but lacked the lighting effects of the other caves. The live classical concert at the end was nice but lasted a little too long and the queue for the boat trip that lasted a few minutes was a joke, luckily you could skip this and walk the 90 meters that the boat took you!

    Those a real caves in Porto Cristo, don't be confused by huge advertisements and do not go to the others! It is very busy with people but very nice. There is a live concert down in the cave and you can be taken by boat for about 2-3 minutes ride - be careful, there is huge queue so it is better to seat at the bottom left side to be first on boat, it is also not worth of waiting longer than 10 minutes :)

  • The Drach Caves

    Son muy bonitas .El problema es que el aforo lo llenan demasiado y están a rebosar de gente .Hay que tener paciencia por lo demás son alucinantes

    Belle , consiglio di prenotare il biglietto sul sito. Si entra a gruppi ogni ora, quindi se arrivate alle casse sperando di entrare potreste trovare sold out e magari dovete fare il biglietto per la visita di qualche ora dopo. In quel caso potete ingannare l'attesa nella visita di Portocristo. Suggestivo il concerto finale. Se riuscite posizionarvi avanti al gruppo in modo da essere tra i primi per il giorno finale in barca. Altrimenti consiglio di tornare a piedi in quanti la barca è solo qualche decina di metri ..

    Muy bonito, sacar las entradas con tiempo para evitar esperas

  • The Drach Caves

    davvero belle, la durata è di un ora circa con un percorso a piedi, purtroppo è molto buio e non si possono fare foto con il flash. una volta finito il percorso c è un piccolo spettacolo di musica classica sull acqua davvero suggestivo! dopodiché c è là possibilità di uscire tornando in acqua con la barca (se c è fila evitate perché è davvero un tratto piccolissimo)
