C’an Picafort

C’an Picafort is the ideal resort for families and couples wanting a relaxing getaway, located in the north east of Mallorca, 60km from Palma airport.

Originally a small village, the resort has developed into a popular tourist resort, with its long sandy beach and friendly atmosphere.

Around town
C’an Picafort clings to the coast for over 2 kilometres, with the main tourist centre arranged in a series of narrow streets behind the beach. A pedestrian promenade backs the beach and offers a wide selection of restaurants and cafes. There is no nightlife to speak of - mainly shows organised by the hotels.

Parallel to the beach and promenade, towards the centre of town you will find the Paseo Colón, the main avenue of C'an Picafort, with its pretty landscaped green zones. Most of the shops and commercial activities are located here.

The old part of town incorporates the marina, town hall, tourist office and the post office, and in its more elevated part, the gardens of ‘La Residencia’ and the old church.

Beaches
The town itself boasts a lovely long sandy beach, which starts at the marina and stretches west to the Port of Alcudia. To the east, there is the small beach of Son Baulo and to the west the tranquil Playa de Muro.

Places to visit
C’an Picafort is just nine kilometres from the traditional and picturesque old town of Puerto Alcudia. The town also incorporates a water park and bustling port. Moving inland you can visit the pretty village of Santa Margarita, surrounded by cultivated fields and fresh air, this area was once the original nucleus of the municipality. It is now a sleepy countryside village.

There are good bus connections to Pollensa, Palma and Alcudia.

Leisure & recreation
There are multiple leisure activities in the local area including horse riding, go-carting (on the largest track of the island), windsurfing, tennis, mini-golf, cycling, hiking, bird watching, fishing, sailing, water-skiing and boat hire.

Eating out
There is a good selection of both traditional and international restaurants in C’an Picafort. The area is very popular with German, British and Scandinavian tourists and residents and you will find good cuisine to satisfy all tastes.

Cuisine
Traditional food is being rediscovered in the Balearics and varies from island to island, but reflects the cuisine of Catalonia. Langosta a la parrilla is one such dish, which accompanies spiny lobster with the local mayonnaise.

Not to be missed is an Ensaimada, a spiral-shaped yeast bun to have with your breakfast coffee or as a tea- time snack

Climate
Mallorca enjoys a typical Mediterranean weather, with mild winters and hot summers. During the months of July and August, the weather is hot and beautifully sunny, boasting around 11 hours of sun daily.

During the winter, the weather can get chilly, but is generally you can enjoy fine, mild weather on most days.

Can Picafort review

Son Baulo is quiet with limited restaurants. Can Picafort is busy and too far to walk from Son Baulo.

Can Picafort review

We were at the quieter end which we preferred but it was nice to walk along the front during the evening and have a good choice of bars and restaurants to choose from.

Can Picafort review

For us it was not the kind of place we normally go. To much tourists in high season. You really have to search for authentic Spanish restaurants where only the locals go.
