Under 'When to go' it's worth making the point that in July/August the sun is v high in the sky and therefore doesn't get into the back of some of the caves to dry them. Condensation can be a problem (as well as it being very hot!)

Good point Tom, I've added that, cheers.

2 wee questions for experienced Mallorca pros: is there really no camping? Anyone know? We are going in 2 weeks (for 10 days) and would love some advice on nice and also cheap places to stay. Tried airbnb apartments but it's not super cheap unless there's a few sharing.

Also are scooters cheap and easy to hire for getting around.
cheers

Not sure about scooters but there's plenty of camping. There's a big campsite at the Monnastery at Lluc, which admittedly isn't very close to the main deep water soloing venues but is close to a lot of good sport crags in the mountains. When I stayed there in 2008 it was free but I think its 5 euros a night now.

There is also Hipocampo, which is very close to Cala Barques in a place called Calas de Mallorca

The website says its great for climbers and deep water soloing.

To say there are no campsites on the island is absolute nonsense.
