My husband and I went to Mallorca for a week, this was my first visit to the island and I was really looking forward to visiting Porto Cristo Novo as this is where my husband went with his family when he was a child. We flew from Belfast to Palma with Jet2 and then I arranged a shuttle transfer to take us to Porto Cristo Novo. I was very impressed with how smoothly this went – very well organised and an added bonus that we were the first to be dropped off at our accommodation. The transfer in the comfortable air conditioned coach took 1 hour. We stayed with family at the Pueblo Mediterraneo which is on the beach of Cala Anguila, steps led down from the apartments to the sandy beach with crystal clear waters. The cove has a dramatic backdrop, sunbeds and shades are available to hire and there is a beach café. Cala Mandia beach is a short walk from here with another excellent beach cafe. The beautiful town of Porto Cristo and its stunning harbour is 2 miles away. During the evening Porto Cristo is a quiet resort, perfect if you want to retreat and get away from it all, but still within easy reach of the more lively Cala Millor which is only a short taxi ride away. However, during the day the resort can become very busy with tour buses due to the close proximity of both the Caves of Drac and Caves of Hams, which between them are possibly the biggest tourist attractions on the island. Manacor, the islands second largest town is 20 minutes drive known for its manufacture of Marjorcia pearls and furniture, good selection of restaurants, shops and bars. We went to the market and enjoyed bartering for sunhats and paella dishes ! If you are looking for somewhere not to far from home, give Majorca a visit you won't regret it. The island is suitable for anyone of any age.
