Today we went for a trip organized by a local travel agency – Fredy Tours. We started by visiting a very nice jewels and pearls factory near Palma (called Algaida). Of course we didn’t leave empty-handed from there as my wife really got something very beautiful (pearls of course) and the price was more than fair. We then went to Manacor in order to visit a nice olive-wood handcrafts factory. All the things made of wood could be found here. We got some olives sticks, really nice and useful 😉 After that we went on the beautiful beach of Cala Millor, with a lot of waves and a great water (warm and clear). We stopped in Porto Cristo for lunch and we had a mallorcan soup, which was actually more like a cabbage dish with some bread on the bottom of the plate, sunk in some kind of a soup. But it was very tasty in my opinion 😉
After that “la piece de resistance” came: Coves del Drach (Caves of Drach). The caves are absolutely amazing and we were really astonished by what we saw in there. Besides all the wonderful shapes created by the nature and all the excellent lights inside, we had the privilege to benefit from a live mini-concert done directly on the lake. As far as they said the lake inside is one of the biggest underground lakes and believe me that I have never seen such a clear water. The lake was 9 meters deep and you could see very clear the bottom of the lake. At the end of the concert we had a short boat ride on the lake and it was just the perfect way of ending this excellent experience.
Therefore – if you ever go to Palma – don’t miss these caves, they’re just great!
After the caves we also had a small stop in a distillery where we god free samples of liquor 😀 So we arrived back to the hotel very pleased and happy 😉
