Porto Cristo: Caves, Beaches, & Exploring
Porto Cristo: my home for over a year. Touristy in the summer, but a quaint little town…
Cuevas del Drach
The caves are the main reason why millions of tourists flock to Porto Cristo every summer (and a few during the winter as well). Explore four caves consisting of impressive rock formations and an underground lake once formed by the Mediterranean Sea. And at the end of your underground adventure, classical music is played each tour by a few musicians on a boat (I think because the acoustics in the caves are pretty amazing).

There are many beaches in Mallorca, but I think Porto Cristo’s beach is a really nice beach compared to some of its neighbor beaches. Rent an umbrella for the day and relax! There’s a floating slide in the water for the kiddies that are able to swim to it, and bars/restaurants around for the parents that are sober enough to walk to them :P
Cliffs & Lookouts
There’s some really good exploring around PC. It’s a relatively small town, so you can explore around the time in no time at all. No matter which direction you start walking, you’ll reach epic views off a cliff.
For a longer excursion, walk to a secluded beach called Cala Petita. Crystal clear blue water and not many people at all – not even the locals go here. I lived in Porto Cristo for almost a year before I even heard of this beach!
Porto Cristo has some dance spots – all located in one area so bar hopping is not a problem. Relaxing lounge bars near the rivet, and dance “clubs” up the street (refer to map).
