Porto Cristo
An active regional town first and resort second, Porto Cristo is appealing rather than beautiful, with authentic character and some very good sea views.

It boasts an old centre with plenty of shady trees, greenery and flowers lining its narrow streets, a natural harbour protected by rocky headlands, and a small, sandy beach. The harbour has more of a leisure than working feel with gleaming yachts and pleasure boats visible from the promenade.

The town beach, is situated below the main road in a small, sheltered bay, it is 300 yards long by 14 yards wide, with fine sand, it can become very crowded, especially at weekends. There are sunbeds, thatched parasols, pedalloes and showers available.

There is reasonable range for the shopper, such as one would expect in a small, thriving town. Many warehouses and pearl stores in nearby Manacor, which also has a Monday market.

During the daytime activities are limited to pleasant strolls in the town and along the quayside, there is also a small aquarium. The nightlife here offers a couple of discos.

For restaurants there is plenty of choice, if no great variety. Terrace restaurants overlook the harbour. Several near the caves, including fast-food outlets.
