Create an itinerary including Cuevas dels Hams
On a guided tour of the subterranean caves of Cuevas dels Hams, discovered in 1905, admire an impressive array of stalagmites, stalactites, and underwater lakes. Artistic lighting adds to the mysterious atmosphere of this underground world. Look for the fish hook–shaped formations to which the caves owe their name, as "hams" means "hooks" in Spanish. Your tour ends at the biggest of all the lakes, where you listen to classical music played from an animatronic gondola. After all, this lake is called the "Sea of Venice." Plan your visit to Cuevas dels Hams and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Porto Cristo trip builder app.

  • Great tour, beautiful caves with increadible formations, good guides, exciting lights and visual effects in the shows. A must do experience and one you won't forget! And the price is reasonable. I do, however, have a couple of things which bring my review to only 4 stars, in some parts of the caves there is not very nice looking wire fencing, obviously there to protect the formations which is completely understandable however it does spoil the view and looks very flimsy, perhaps glass barriers would be better, with some small holes to take photos unobstructed by the glare of the glass? There are also a lot of concrete walkways constructed through the caves, which again is understandable for walking on safety, however it's sad that much of the cave floor has been covered by concrete. Wooden or metal walkways would have been much more appealing, however this can obviously not be changed now. All in all though, I really enjoyed the experience.
  • Beautiful place! My first caves and I really like it. Amazing short classic music concert inside! But be ready that MAYBE u will need to wait a few hours to enter (time of entrance u have in your ticket). I was alone and lucky not to wait too long:)
  • Visited here after the adjacent dinosaur land, great for all ages. There was a slight delay whilst waiting to go into the second cave area but nothing unreasonable. Great sight to see and well worth visiting for the stalactites that are unique to the caves and the reasons they’re named as such.
  • Hams Caves is really a nice touristic cave experience. This is the second set of caves on the island of Mallorca that I've visited, and this one is definitely much better than the other one. There's ample parking and it's quite easy to get there. You can buy tickets at the gate and the price is more than fair for what you get. I think kids under 4 are free, so that's great too. The experience is basically a walk through the underground caves, with a few extras thrown in. They have 2 video 'experiences' that are definitely pretty cool and there's a musical light show at the underground lake. That's also quite fun. The caves are well lit and organized and the groups are kept to a good size so that everyone can enjoy the walk through. There's multiple languages offered for the tour and the tour guides seem to be knowledgeable if you have additional questions. There's a bit of walking, but not a crazy amount. However there are quite a few stairs, so if you are walking handicapped, or have many very small children, this will likely not work for you. After the tour there's a very small gift shop and a small cafe restaurant if you're hungry. All in all, I'd say it was worth it for me. I'd visit if you're in the area and need to kill about an hour.
  • Very beautiful caves, really interesting and instructive guidance for one hour which you should not miss. Please notice if you have claustrophobia or if you have very young kids with you, it's maybe not the best idea to visit the caves. Otherwise we really can recommend you the tour!!
