Practising a sport is highly recommendable, at any age and at any place and Porto Cristo provides the opportunity to practise a wide range of sports.
Porto Cristo can boast being the home town of a great sports man, the sadly missed Joan Gomis, who was the underwater fishing champion on numerous occasions. Thanks to him, this hobby, practised at the fishing club in Porto Cristo is more alive than ever. It offers the possibility to practise many different types of fishing together with the enthusiasts and members of the club, letting us adventure into this passionateworld.
The Porto Cristo Fishing Club's telephone number is 652 95 98 63
Cycling is another sport that is getting more and more popular. Conscientious of the need to encourage this sport and make the routes more accessible, Porto Cristo has bicycle tracks which pass through the village up to S'Illot and Cala Mendia
Moreover, Cyclotourism is a well known sport with the "Tourism Board" boosting the initiative to open five new routes, one of which extends from Manacor to Porto Cristo, passing through Sant Lloreç des Cardassar. This route is 55k long and the average speed is 18.4km/h
