Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Shop and Caves of Drach

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover some of Mallorca’s top attractions on a day trip to the Majorica Pearl Shop and Cavern of the Dragon (also known as Caves of the Drach or Cuevas del Drach). Head to the town of Manacor to learn how the famous Majorica pearls are made, and discover the fascinating 1.5-mile-long (2.4-km) Cavern of the Dragon, which has an impressive height of 82 feet (25 meters)! You’ll also enjoy a boat trip on Lake Martel (one of the world’s largest underground lakes), listen to a live classical music concert and watch a spectacular light show!
  • Visit Mallorca’s Dragon Caves and a pearl shop with no transport worries
  • Visit a Majorica shop to see the island’s organic pearls being made
  • Lake boat trip, concert, and walk in the illuminated Dragon Caves
  • Numerous pickup spots, plus upgrade to a full day with a Porto Cristo visit
What to Expect
Book your preferred option and depart your Mallorca hotel or cruise port by air-conditioned minivan. (See the Itinerary for pickup point information.) Then, gaze at villages and farmland en route to the Majorica Pearl Shop in Manacor. Watch artisans at work as they create these iridescent pearls—each perfect mirrors of their cultured counterparts—and then continue to the Dragon Caves to experience their natural beauty. Descend underground and marvel at the illuminated rock formations while learning how they were formed. Admire Lake Martel, one of the world’s biggest underground lakes, and enjoy a short classical concert and optional boat trip on its waters. Finally, visit the harbor town of Porto Cristo (full-day tours only) to see its sights and enjoy its restaurants and beaches independently. Whatever your chosen option, your tour then ends at the start point.
