Porto Cristo holidays 2021
Don't be fooled into thinking that every holiday resort in Majorca has been spoilt by tourism, because holidays to Porto Cristo are guaranteed to give you a true sense of the Spanish lifestyle. The tourism infrastructure is well-established in this part of the island, however, its atmosphere is more laid-back than nearby resorts, such as Cala Millor. A popular family resort with a sublime location on the island's eastern coast, Porto Cristo is fairly small in size, allowing you to discover a lot of the landscape during your stay.
The name is derived from 'The Port of Christ' and much like other areas of Majorca, Porto Cristo boasts a favourable year-round climate. Since it’s positioned just 8.6 miles from Manacor, a 2021 holiday to Porto Cristo will give you a chance to visit the agricultural town, where the famous Caves of Drach are located. Whether you plan on visiting the authentic fishing village with a partner, the family, or as a group, you can anticipate a blissful experience in this Balearic jewel.

Your guide to Porto Cristo holidays
While some attractions are located in Porto Cristo, others are only accessible by driving or boat. Examples of the things you can do when spending time in the relaxed fishing village include shopping, boat rental, and hikes to lookout points like Torre Serral dels Falcons. Set off on a day trip to the small bay of Cala Millor to swim in the shimmering waters at Cala Morlanda beach. This nearby resort is the proud destination for the International Regatta.
A day spent at the Caves of Drach in nearby Manacor will be unforgettable. The name translates to ‘Dragon Caves’ and the attraction is made up of four caves, which were discovered in the 1300s. Alternatively, make a splash by jumping off a cliff, participating in swimming pool activities at your hotel, or snorkelling around the harbour.
Before Cala Millor experienced a boom in tourism, Porto Cristo was the place to go for beach lovers. It’s somewhat of a blessing in disguise that its neighbour has claimed the limelight, since it relieves Porto Cristo of becoming too tourist-focused. The ocean is turquoise and crystal clear, so don't forget to pack your swimsuit and snorkel gear when sunbathing on the eastern coastline.
A few other beaches can be found in Cala Bona and Cala Millor. If you lack the time to visit them all during your holiday to Porto Cristo, cram a lot of coastal sightseeing into one day by booking a glass-bottomed boat cruise.
