Can Picafort Holidays

Ca’n Picafort is a fishing village and holiday resort on the northern coast of Majorca. Located near to the town of Alcudia, Ca’n Picafort has long been popular with German and British holidaymakers looking for a relaxing Balearic beach holiday. Despite rapid growth during the 1970s and 80s, the resort retains much of its original charm. Package holidays in Ca’n Picafort suit families who want clean, sandy, child-friendly beaches and a quiet break.
Holidays in Ca’n Picafort tend to involve staying at one of the huge, resort-style hotels in the town. These modern monoliths have all the facilities and creature comforts you would expect and are very popular with families. As well as fantastic swimming pools, gyms and spas, expect to find plenty of day and nighttime entertainment for children and adults.
Ca’n Picafort has two main beaches, both very clean and with excellent facilities. Loungers and parasols are available for hire but prices tend to be a little higher than in other Mediterranean resorts. An attractive pedestrianised promenade runs the length of the town’s coast and is lined with cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Menus in Ca’n Picafort are geared towards tourists, with British and German dishes featuring heavily. The availability of package holiday deals sees the town’s population swell during the summer months and bars and restaurants get very busy at this time of year.
Frequent boat trips depart from Ca’n Picafort’s harbour and offer anything from an hour or two to a whole day at sea. Bus services in this part of Majorca are fairly reliable so there’s no need to hire a car unless you want to travel to some of the less-visited areas. The larger and more cosmopolitan resort of Alcudia is just a short bus journey away from Ca’n Picafort and makes for a pleasant day out.
