Mallorca: Visit the Caves of Hams

1. Mallorca: Visit the Caves of Hams

Situated in Porto Cristo, the caves are renowned throughout the world for their peculiar fish-hook shaped formations. There are three main caves, the round cave is a vast open area which includes a spectacular botanical garden and is full of life, with many species of free-flying birds that are native to the island of Majorca. It has a special micro-climate as the natural temperature is below that of the exterior meaning it has its own particular vegetation. Millions of years ago, this underground cave was closed in. In blue cave, with its spectacular new blue lighting using cutting edge led technology, you can enjoy the educational documentary, Discovering the past. You will learn about the history of Majorca, its first inhabitants, the formation of the Hams caves and their discovery. You can admire Samson’s pillars, the plains of Fra Mauro and the Pit of hell, where, in a natural auditorium, they will present Genesis, the history of life, a frenzied time lapse from the Big Bang to the present day, projected onto the very rock-face of the cave. The main cave is made up of 12 galleries. On the underground lake called the Sea of Venice, a musical show is presented. The caves are one of Majorca’s main tourist attractions.

The stalactites and stalagmites are very nice and lit in interesting ways. The explanations are in multiple languages, short, and to the point. There are also a couple of movies and a recorded musical concert with videos projected on the cave walls. The cave is pretty small and the tour takes less than an hour in total. The temperatures are 18-20 degrees.

Stunning! Beautifully preserved . We had an amazing time. We felt very welcoming too... staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. It felt like they cared a lot about the caves . Easy parking too

Nicely organized, the cave was beautiful! We got the idea we will have a boat trip inside, but we only saw the boats.

Stunning natural beauty, extremely well displayed by the lighting and commentary.

Amazing caves and short enough that it was convenient to take our 9 month old
