Porto Cristo

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

A multitude of isolated coves, some of which are hard to reach, can be found between Colonia Sant Jordi and Cala Mesquida. The lovely fishing port of Porto Cristo, with its many tapas bars and restaurants, is located on the east coast of Majorca. This village is known for being home to the two most famous caves in Majorca: Coves del Drach and Coves del Hams Boasting a marina and protected by a concrete seawall, the beach of Porto Cristo is an urban beach where you can admire the cliffs on the left. The fine white sand leads to the crystal-clear water. Despite its small size, it is not overly crowded. If you fancy doing some water sports, like canoeing, windsurfing, diving, etc., head to the beaches of Sa Coma, Cala Millor and Cala Mandia, just a few miles away.

To see

The caves of del Drach and del Hams. The port and the beach of Porto Cristo. The beaches of Sa Coma, Cala Millor, S'estany d'en Mar and Cala Mandia, just a few miles away. The delightful Cala Romantica.

To do

There are several caves located in the surrounding area. The most famous ones are the Coves del Drach and the Coves del Hams, both in Porto Cristo. You should also visit the Coves del Arta, Coves del Pirata and the Cueva del Pilar.

pros

  • +  The caves of del Drach and del Hams.
  • +  An unspoilt coast and preserved nature.
  • +  The many beautiful coves.

cons

  • -  The location is a bit far from Palma and the airport.

To think about

In winter, the resorts run at a slower pace. This is great if you just want some peace and quiet, but for a bit of entertainment we recommend you stay in Palma's old town during this period. On the other hand, the south-eastern coast is quite lively and entertaining during the summer all while maintaining its authenticity in a preserved natural setting, unlike the urbanised area of Palma.

To avoid

Don't limit yourself to your hotel: hire a car and go discover the beautiful island of Majorca.

To try

Tapas at the Porto Cristo port.

To bring back

Majorcan pearls and olive oil.
