Cova de coloms is one of the only sea caves that you can swim into here in Mallorca, located of the coast of Cala Romantica. This hidden cavern is just a 300-metre swim along the coast and 1 duck under the water at the entrance until you venture into this magical cave.

Cova de coloms is located at a secluded beach a 40 minute walk along the coastal path. The walk has amazing panoramic views of the east coast of Mallorca.

    This was excellent, as someone who travels often and looks for extreme and different. The guides were fantastic, the activity itself was beautiful and exciting and loads of fun. They picked us up from our hotel and were running 15 minutes late and they called to apologize for the delay to confirm they were coming, I was so impressed they were so on top of everything. We did the sea caving, it's a bit more of a physical activity then we were expecting but we were thrilled. Keep it mind, it took most of the day, we were picked up around 9am and did not get back to our hotel until 6pm.

    Absolutely excellent day with Joan. As a single female joining the group was very easy. Enjoyable from trek at the start and the scenery to the swim in the sea and entering the cave. Nervous of the sea but felt totally at ease with Joan’s expertise and the caves were amazing. All round knowledge of the area and informative, really fun day out. Definitely recommend

    My husband and I had the most amazing day sea caving yesterday. Our guide for the day, Juan picked us up at our hotel at 8:30 and it took about an hour to get to the other side of the island. During the drive he was telling us all about the caves in Majorca (over 4000 of them!). We arrived and met up with the rest of the group (there were 8 of us in all and an intern guide from Holland). We were given our backpack with wetsuits, buoyancy vest and helmet and then set off to the caves. It's about a 30 minute walk and again Juan was busy telling us all about the area. We got to the area and grabbed a snack and got into our wetsuits, again being told how to put everything on so if you've never done anything like this before they explain everything. To get into the cave there are 2 options, swim about 400 metres or jump from cliff side (about 2.5 metres high) and then swim 200 metres. I have a fear of heights and jumping off things but I did it and it felt amazing. Again, at all times Juan and the intern explained everything, where to stand and what to do and even when I got a bit nervous at jumping they were both very reassuring. Once in the caves we were just blown away at the beauty of the place. There are a couple of sections where you need to climb up or down sections of the caves, nothing major at all but you're told exactly where to stand and the natures of the caves gives sections for you to hold on to. Everyone in our group managed it all with no issues. There is a 1 metre jump inside the cave into the lake (or you can walk down and just get in the lake, or if your crazy there's a higher jump). A couple of times at certain sections Juan got us to switch our helmet torches off so he could light up the lake and it was quite simply stunning. We were told we would be in the caves for about an hour but we were in there for longer, we were all mesmerised and Juan was such a great guide explaining everything. It was quite simply the most amazing day I'll never forget it.
