Ca’n Picafort – Mallorca’s north coast

Holidays in Ca’n Picafort mean above all having a good time. The long sandy beach starts right on the doorstep, the lively town is within easy walking distance, and the bars and restaurants on the seafront offer great views of the bay.

Located on the northeast coast of Mallorca, Ca’n Picafort is a purpose-built resort with wide, palm-lined streets. The range of bars and restaurants covers local and Spanish specialities, and the relaxed pace matches the uncluttered, compact layout of the place. However, the beach is by no means small – you can play with 13 kilometers of sand here.

Endless acres of sand

In Ca’n Picafort, all roads lead to the beach. Shops, bars and restaurants line the palm-lined promenade, which turns into an endless, pearly white beach. The sand slopes gently into the water, which is so calm that even the smallest swimmers will get their money’s worth, and there is a wide range of water sports on offer.

Ca’n Picafort – easily accessible nightlife

Because Ca’n Picafort is so compact, you don’t have to do a lot of walking to get around. The main street is Paseo Colon – a long line of shops, restaurants and bars that lead down to the harbour, where you can pick one seafood restaurant after another. And down on the beach there is a selection of established pubs, bars and discos. In the surroundings of Ca’n Picafort you can enjoy many of Mallorca’s countless attractions.

Playa de Muro – an endless sandy beach and numerous water sports facilities

The 6 km long beach offers clear, shallow waters that are perfect for swimming and – what is even more popular – areas for water sports. Learn to windsurf or rent jet skis at the pier and explore the island’s coastline. The beach is adjacent to a protected wetland that is perfect for walks and offers the chance to spot native wildlife. After swimming or walking, you can have a cold drink or a meal in one of the beach cafés.

Surrounded by medieval walls, the old town of Alcúdia is home to numerous well-preserved houses that date back to the 13th century.
