C’an Picafort is a relatively big resort situated on the north east coast of Mallorca on the gorgeous Bay of Alcudia, about an hour away from Palma. The resort grew from a small fishing village (remains of which can be seen in the town’s working harbour) and today, spreads along a grid of petite streets near the main beach.
Pedestrian-friendly with a promenade ideal for evening strolls, the resort has become popular with those seeking a relaxing beachside getaway. There are many bars, restaurants and nightclubs and plenty of shops and a bustling market on Fridays.
C’an Picafort is also right next to Son Baulo, which has its own beach, shops and restaurants. There are many 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 first-rate bird-watching opportunities and a chance to enjoy the local flora and fauna. (photo:Li-sung)
