C'an Picafort is a relatively large holiday resort situated on the north east coast of Mallorca on the lovely Bay of Alcudia, about an hour away from Palma. Like El Arenal, C'an Picafort is highly popular with German visitors, and due to those who have returned to live, it retains a certain German flavour. The resort grew from a tiny fishing village (remains of which can be seen in the town's working harbour) and today, spreads along a grid of small streets near the principal beach.
Pedestrian-friendly with a promenade perfect for evening strolls, the resort has become popular with those seeking a quiet beachside getaway, and hotels provide much of the resort's entertainment. There are several bars, restaurants and nightclubs, however, and plenty of shops and an excellent market on Fridays. C'an Picafort is also right next to Son Baulo, which has its own beach, shops and restaurants and is a popular holiday destination.
There are several activities to indulge in during the day such as cruises, horse riding, jeep safaris, go-karting, biking and watersports, and excursions to neighbouring areas provide a more local Spanish flavour. Santa Margalida has more than 150 archaeological sites, including the Son Real Necropolis (also known as the Cemetery of the Phoenicians) that was used as a burial site from the Iron Age to Roman times. The nearby S'Albufera Wetlands Park offers excellent bird-watching opportunities, and a chance to enjoy the local flora and fauna. Another great way to spend the day is to take a bus trip to the busier resort of Puerto de Alcudia, or to Palma or Pollensa.
The excellent beach is the main draw for most visitors to C'an Picafort, but there some other distractions for those wanting some variety. Driving skills can be tested at the Karting track; free transfers are provided from the centre of town. The enormous Hidropark in nearby Alcudia is a fun a refreshing day out. Nature lovers should check out S'albufera wetland nature reserve on the outskirts of town. A little further afield in Porto Cristo, are the Caves of Drach, the most popular tourist attraction in Majorca.
There are numerous British-themed pubs and eateries, and an equal number of German and Scandinavian restaurants catering to the large number of visitors from those countries. For fine dining try Es Turo which is housed in a centuries-old building. The most popular style of eating for locals and visitors alike is tapas, provided at any café in town.
C'an Picafort's longest running nightclub is Skau which is open every night during the summer season. Another nightlife hotspot in C'an Picafort is the western-themed bar Charly's.
Most shops face onto the paved road lining the beach. The Caprabo shop on the Carreterra d'Arta-Port d'Alcudia road sells all things British for those missing the luxuries of home. Market days are Tuesday and Sunday, and while the market is small if visitors are prepared to bargain hard they can pick up some great souvenirs.
There are few worthwhile attractions in town and for those wanting more than a beach-based holiday C'an Picafort can be a bit dull.
