Coves de Campanet & Alcudia Port

This afternoon I paid a visit to the Coves (Caves) de Campanet. Filled with stalactites and stalagmites (and new ones are forming all the time), they were discovered in 1945. There are other more famous caves in Mallorca, Cuevas del Drach in Porto Cristo and Cuevas del Arta near Canyamel. But this one is large and interesting, and most importantly, not at all crowded. No guided tour was required unlike the other caves I’ve been to so I could wander around and take photos at my leisure. It was also nice and cool (and pretty dark at times) in the cave.

After wandering around the cave, I drove to the Port of Alcudia, about 20 minutes away, and wandered around the port (lots of boats and the possibility of arranging a boat tour of the area) and walked past the beach. It was not crowded, but there are a lot of restaurants there, and tourist type shops.
