Porto Cristo

Can anyone give me any general info on Porto Cristo, Majorca. We are older/middle aged like to go self catering and eat out in the evenings preferring quieter resorts. So any info on tavernas/restaurants, beaches, walks, weather in May or September etc would be appreciated.

Restaurants, there are a few along the front by the beach and along the marinat, beaches, there is one, small but nice, walks, well I guess you can wander around the marina of an evening but there not much else to see in the resort itself apart from the Caves of Drach. It tends to be more used by Spaniards and any hotels are slightly out of the resort itself towards Calas de Mallorca. It's nice to spend a few hours in but I'm not sure I'd want to spend a whole holiday there. Weather can be very pleasant in both May and Sept with high 20's easily in Sept and a little cooler in May.

Having visited Porto Cristo a few times whilst on holiday in Mallorca, I would say "it`s a nice place to visit but I wouldn`t want to stay there", just about covers it. We are just into our 60`s and have been visiting Mallorca for about 12 years, always based in Cala D`or, but hiring a car and driving all over the island.

We have found the resort to be a good base,whichever side of the marina you choose to stay, providing vast amounts of S/C opportunities, restaurants,(Acuarius on the marina is one of our favourites), calas, (small coves), walks and, May and September are wonderful times to visit.

Wherever and whenever you choose I am sure you will have a great time.

I would agree with both the previous posters Porto Cristo is a good place for a visit coupled with a trip to the caves but not the sort of place where I would want to stay for a week. You could consider Porto Petro a similar small town but with more to do nearby .It has a harbour , a selection of restaurants, close to a wonderful beach (Mondrago) with great walking around and also within walking distance of Cala Egos and Cala D'or .
