The beach in general
Porto Cristo beach is situated in beautiful surroundings. The beach is sheltered by a rock wall at its northern end and the lovely harbour at its southern end.
The 350 meter long beach has fine golden sand and crystal clear water. It is possible to rent sun loungers.
Visitors arriving by car can park in the streets behind the beach. Notice, that some parking zones have time-limited parking.
The fine grained sand is perfect for playing and the water is fairly shallow.
Only pedal boats.
The street behind the beach offers a good selection of restaurants, including Burger King and restaurants with a nice view of the sea.
Porto Cristo holiday resort
Porto Cristo was originally a fishing village. Now it is a beautiful and quiet family oriented resort with a very good beach. Tourism has become the main source of income but fishing is still an important factor in Porto Cristo, although the harbour is now dominated by expensive yachts and sailboats.
During the evening Porto Cristo is a very quiet resort. However, during the day the resort can become very busy due to the close proximity of Coves del Drac, which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Mallorca. Coves del Drac has Europe’s largest underground lake, Llac Martel.
Porto Cristo also offers various boat excursions with catamaran or glass bottom boat.
