Known locally as Cuevas del Drach, which translates to Caves of Drach in English, are a quad cave system situated on the far east side of the island of Mallorca in Spain. They extend to a depth of 25 meters (82 feet) and stretch about 4km (2.5 miles) in length.

The Caves of Drach are four caves which each have their own name, the Black Cave, the White Cave, the Cave of Luis Salvador, and the Cave of the French. All of which are connected to each other.
The incredible cave system has been formed over the years by water being forced through the entrance of the Mediterranean Sea and you can see the incredible formations that build up to create this underground oasis.
Though the exact date they were discovered is a bit of a mystery, some researchers believe they date back millions of years, as far as the Miocene Epoch.
You may not have heard of the Caves of Drach if you haven’t visited Mallorca, but they are one of the main attractions on the island and are certainly worth visiting.
You have the choice of a walk-through tour as well as a boat tour, both are worth the few euros you’ll pay, but the boat ride is certainly more mesmerizing for those looking to get up close and personal with the cave system. You can book tours and purchase tickets here.
You can fly into Palma and hire a car which is probably the most efficient way to navigate the Spanish island and get to the cave system. Alcudia is also worth checking out to if you’re on the island.
