Ca’n Picafort is an attractive holiday resort on the northern coast of Majorca which forms part of the Balearic Islands.

With its hot summers and traditional charm, this popular tourist destination has lots to do both day and night.
The family friendly beach has been specifically designed to ensure an enjoyable and relaxing visit. From toilets and showers to sun loungers and parasols (that come with a safe), Ca’n Picafort is the contemporary and exciting holiday destination. The beach does get quite busy in high season; this is because it has a long stretch of golden sand, warm waters and views of a beautiful mountain on the horizon. As well as soaking up the summer sun, a variety of water sports are available including banana boats and paddleboards. With trained lifeguards on duty daily, you can easily enjoy your day at the beach with not a care in the world.
History and culture
Before its stunning scenery and vibrant atmosphere became common knowledge, Ca’n Picafort’s economy was fuelled by the fish that was caught and sold in the heart of the village. To get a real feel for the area, head inland to see traditional architecture and fascinating archaeological sites, most of which date back to Roman time. For a chilling look at the islands pre-historic era, take a short drive or walk to Son Bauló for the Son Real Necrópolis that translates to ‘Cemetery of the Phoenicians’. Here you will find over 100 tombs that have been excavated into the rock, dating back to the Talaiotic Period.
The great thing about visiting Ca’n Picafort is that most of the nightlife and restaurants are within walking distance. They often have outdoor seating areas and open late to enjoy the cool Balearic breeze. There are many bars and nightclubs to choose from in central Ca’n Picafort and its neighbouring resort, Alcudia. Enjoy a tasty meal and a fruity cocktail or two under the stars, before dancing the night away in the upbeat and friendly atmosphere.
