Do you know the incredible caves of Palma de Mallorca? Discover them at the hand of Hotel Sant Jordi
Mallorca is an island that keeps many incredible secrets such as the caves of Palma de Mallorca and its grottoes, many of which can be visited and explored. At Hotel Sant Jordi we recommend the best caves in Palma de Mallorca to discover these natural places full of magic. Join us and discover them!

We do not know exactly how many caves there are in Palma de Mallorca: some say there are more than 200 and others say there are up to 400. Its formation is due to the calcareous soil of the island and the continuous erosion to which it is subjected. These cavities of stalagmites and stalactites make up a series of routes and caves that make up the secret landscape of the island and many of them are difficult to locate, since they are in hidden or inaccessible places, that is why from Hotel Sant Jordi we recommend visiting some of the best caves in Palma de Mallorca near its wonderful beaches. Let's go there!

Caves d'en Drach
Probably the best known caves in Palma de Mallorca are the Drach Caves, located on the eastern coast, specifically in Porto Cristo town, they constitute one of the main tourist attractions and are a must-visit if we want to discover the natural beauty of these natural excavations in the earth. With more than 1,200 metres in length and a depth of about 25 metres below the surface, these caves hide an underground lake known as Lake Martel, considered one of the largest in the world.

For those who are passionate about the grottos and caves of Palma de Mallorca, it is worth visiting not only the most popular ones, but also some lesser-known, since on the island no cave is the same as the other, and they all have their characteristics and a special beauty.

Caves of Artà
It is said that these caves inspired Jules Verne to write his well-known work "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and these are some of the caves in Palma de Mallorca that take us 40 metres deep, towards an impressive network of underground tunnels that we can cross in a tour of about 40 minutes, between stone columns, stalactites and stalagmites. Also, if you are doing tourism on the island, you will like to discover the show with lights and music that are part of the tour.

Hams caves
A little smaller than the rest of the caves in Palma de Mallorca, but just as beautiful, these caves are known by tourists and offer a series of natural formations similar to trees, with very special mystical shapes similar to hooks - hence its name comes from - and the stone formations reflect in the waters. This cave system was discovered for the first time in 1905 and currently offers a walk with a show included, an entertaining visit ideal for a family or with your partner.

Caves of Campanet
Compared to the rest of the caves in Palma de Mallorca, these are simple and practically virgin. Its route begins with more than 350 steps that take us down to the depths, where we will discover a narrow path in a circuit of about 40 minutes, through which we will pass through tunnels and corridors until we reach the small underground lakes and the longest fine stalactites in Europe, some of them being only 4 millimetres in diameter.
