Beach of Porto Cristo
The beach of Porto Cristo (also known as Port de Portocristo, Port de Manacor, or Cala Manacor) is located in the middle of the town, is rather small, roughly 230 meters long, and 25 meters wide, and is made of fine white sand. It offers plenty of space to relax, enjoy the sun and take a dip, whether using the sun loungers or your towels. The beach stretches along a promenade that is filled with restaurants and shops, as well as a small walkway that heads towards the far end of the cliffs. Heading into the water is a gentle slope of a few meters, hence this in combination with calm waters makes it great for children, especially those that can already swim. On one end you'll find an area to rent kayaks and SUP's, while the rest of the beach is purely for swimming.
The whole area (port) is Z shaped as the port goes further into town where it meets the Llebrona stream (locally known as the Riuet) and the walls across the beach protect the beach from stronger winds and waves. It can get quite busy in the summer months, however, mostly with families. There is a boardwalk in the back that connects the beach entrances on either side.
The town of Porto Cristo features a port, therefore the swimming area is large enough to enjoy a swim, yet large boats including the glass bottom water tours also frequent here (and dock).
The beach of Porto Cristo is definitely worth a visit, if you want a view including a few yachts, the rocky coastline and fine sand. Alternatively, we would recommend visiting the nearby beaches of Cala Anguila, Cala Mendia and Cala Romantica.
