The town is still a thriving fishing village and this diversity ensures that it retains a certain charm in comparison to some of the larger resorts on the island. You won't find high-rise hotels dominating the landscape of Porto Cristo, and the town prides itself on offering holiday-goers a relaxed experience, sure to recharge your batteries.
It's quite surprising that Porto Cristo is so quiet and laid-back, especially as the island's biggest tourist attraction is on its doorstep - the twin Caves of Drach and Hams. They are some of the most famous on the island, and it's easy to see them with late deals to Majorca.
The name of the Drach cave network translates into English as 'The Dragon Caves', and inside the belly of the dragon you'll find Lake Martel, one of the biggest underground lakes in the world. Here you can take a guided tour among the impressively up-lit interior of the caves, which culminates in a performance of classical music inside a boat.
The Hams caves take their name from the Majorcan word for 'fishhook' or 'harpoon', in reference to the bizarre formations of stalactites and stalagmites which dominate their interior. Though smaller than the Drach caves, the Hams caves still offer similar concerts and tours and remain an important tourist attraction in their own right.
