There are a number of glass bottomed boat trips to take along the east coast, visiting remote beaches and other resorts such as Porto Cristo and Sa Coma. Land excursions include trips to the town of Manacor, famed for its artificial pearls; or the town of Felanitx, worth visiting on a Sunday morning just to experience the market which is widely recognised as being one of the best on the island.
The Exotic Parque Los Pajaros is found just outside the resort, it features a children's zoo, flamingos and a garden with a variety of cactus. Alternatively the Tropical Park Jumaica, situated on the road from Porto Cristo to Porto Colom, is a lush tropical garden with rare plants and free flying exotic birds.
For golfers the nearest golf course is Vall d'Or just a 10-15 minute drive away. The golf club also has a pool, driving range, paddle courts and a restaurant.
The Natural Park Mondrago is just a few kilometres to the south of the resort and a great place for hiking and trekking or simply bathing on its two pristine beaches.
Porto Cristo is home to the popular tourist attraction Caves of Drach, the caves feature many caverns with beautifully formed stalactites and stalagmites, as well as a large subterranean lake where classical music recitals are performed daily.
