Beaches > Manacor and Porto Cristo

  Porto Cristo: on Mallorca's east coast has been a well known tourist destination for many years thanks to the amazing discovery during the 1930s of the spectacular Caves of Drach. These caves together with one of the world's largest underground lakes (Lago de Martel) attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year represent one of the island's premier tourist attractions.
Manacor: is just an ordinary town with a population of around 30,000. Narrow streets radiate randomly from its large, central Gothic-style church, whose spires soar above the surrounding low-rise buildings and tree-lined streets and squares. Manacor is famous for its pearl factory and, more locally, for its good-quality wooden furniture. Apart from its attractive old centre, this is one of the least attractive towns on the island, and most visitors are simply passing through on the way to somewhere else.
