Caves of Drach (Coves del Drac)

The classic tourist attraction Caves of Drach - or Coves del Drac - is a crowd pleaser for many reasons, not least of which is that these 4 fantastic caves form a truly remarkable hydrogeological formation. An enormous underground expanse of undulating sandstone and semiprecious agates creates an imaginarium of weird formations, against which delicate bouquets of stalactites and stalamites glisten. This exquisite ornamentation frames Europe's largest underground sea, 177m(581 feet)-long Lake Martel.

As if all this weren't enough to tempt the tour buses, expert illuminator Carlos Buigas mounted a multicolored light show spectacular that puts Ibiza's wildest clubs to shame, while boats filled with classical musicians perform Chopin, Martini, and more in an acoustic shell unlike any other in the world. One can only hope that they will not wake the Drac de Mallorca, the Dragon of Majorica, who disappeared sometime during the Dark Ages, though no one is quite sure to where. 

Practical Info

While the vast majority of tourists visit the Caves of Drach on tour buses as part of package tours or day trips, you can visit on your own. Public transport to the region is spotty, however, so you'll need to hire a taxi; airport shuttles from La Palma may be a better deal for solo travelers and couples

The Cuevas are located 1.5 kilometers (.9 miles) s outh of Porto Cristi, a coastal community near the city of Manacor. Although tourism certainly isn't this region's focus - Mantacor is home to thriving outh of Porto Cristi, a coastal community near the city of Manacor. Although tourism certainly isn't this region's focus - Mantacor is home to thriving furniture and false pearl industries - Porto Cristi does have a fine little half-moon of a beach and several modest but comfortable hotels geared to low-key travelers.
