Porto Colom Lighthouse – Capdepera Lighthouse – Stage 1
Stage 1: Porto Colom Lighthouse – Porto Cristo.
This stretch of the tour covers the amazing coves of eastern Mallorca, starting in Porto Colom and finishing in Porto Cristo. These two natural ports have a long naval history and attract many tourists thanks to the surroundings.
We will begin on the eastern coast of Mallorca with one of the most charming places on the island: Porto Colom. It is a unique destination for tourists and residents alike. It has gone through a huge transformation since the 18th century; then it was a safe harbor for boats and now it is a tourist attraction thanks to the different hotels, restaurants, and apartments in the area. As of today, it continues to keep its traditions and its natural beauty.
We will leave Porto Colom and go deep into one of the most beautiful areas of Mallorca where different coves of crystal-clear waters and golden sand abound. If we leave our route, we will also be able to find unique coves, such as Cala Varques, Cala Virgili, and Cala Pilota, which are protected and difficult to access (only accessible by foot).
Before we reach our final destination, we will come to another natural port with a strong naval tradition: Porto Cristo. There we will be able to enjoy its wonderful beach and its many restaurants, without omitting to take a look at the most visited natural caves on the island: the Caves of Drach.
