What You Can Expect

Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Factory and Cavern of the Dragon

Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Factory and Cavern of the Dragon

This exciting and comprehensive day trip on Mallorca starts with a drive in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Head inland through the beautiful villages of Santa Margarita and Petra as you make your way toward the town of Manacor. Here, visit the Majorica Pearl Factory to see how its famous man-made pearls are crafted. Note that if you choose the transport option from the northern part of the island, you will visit Perlas de Mallorca factory instead.

Next, discover one of Mallorca’s best natural wonders, a series of caves called the Cavern of the Dragon. The caves, mentioned in Jules Verne’s book Clovis Dartetor, were discovered around the year 1338. In total, they are 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long, but only half of that is accessible – enjoy a one-hour guided tour along the 0.75-mile (1.2-km) route. While you’re in the cave, enjoy a 10-minute live performance of classical music.

At Lake Martel, one of the world’s largest underground lakes that’s hidden within the caves, watch a fascinating light show that imitates the sun rising over the lake, and enjoy a short boat ride. Alternatively, you may continue the Cavern of the Dragon tour on foot and join the rest of the group outside the caves.

When you leave the caves, head to Porto Cristo, a fishing village on the east coast of Mallorca, for a panoramic sightseeing tour. Porto Cristo is located on a sheltered bay with beautiful sandy beaches, coastal caves and shallow water. You’ll have some free time here to take a lunch break (own expense) in the center of town, which offers a wide selection of bars and restaurants, or walk past Porto Cristo's 15th-century watchtower.

Then head back though Manacor, the birthplace of top tennis player Rafael Nadal, to your original departure point.

Loved the Dragon caverns. We also could not get over how beautiful Porto Cristo and the coastline was. Water so blue. I could have done without the stop at the pearl gift shop.

Parents, please leave infants and toddlers at home. This is a long day on a bus. Our music and light show was ruined by screaming babies.

The pearl factory wasnt that exciting. The Cave of the Dragon was great, especially with the boatride and ochestra on the lake at the bottom of the cave. Nice day, except I got in trouble for being the last one on the bus. Toni, our guide, was a bit scary. Apart from that, a nice tour.

We've never reached Majorica Pearl factory, we were taken to pearl shop instead. Cavern is great! Worth visiting.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2012

Fantastic day trip and well worth the money. I really enjoyed the Pearl Factory (however I missed the liquor tastings as I didn't see them). I felt soooo moved by the symphony in the Cavern of the Dragon... it was one of the best experiences on my entire trip. Highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Mallorca.

Bus was a little hot and so I deducted 1 star, but the experiences were wonderful. So amazed by our tour guides ability to speak 4 different languages. There was plenty of time in a small beach village. Wow, all the sites in 1 day and to get us back right on time was amazing.
