The beach in Can Picafort is really nice and it offers some interesting activities. It is a long wide sandy beach, not very deep, and there are many things to do there: to relax sunbathing, to swim in its crystal waters, to do parasailing, a jet ski tour, amongst other water activities. Here are our top 12 things to do in Can Picafort:

Go Bird Watching at the Albufera Parc Natural

A very interesting day trip for those who love walking and nature is to the Albufera nature park. S’Albufera, the largest and most important wetland area in the Balearics, is a former lagoon separated from the sea by a belt of dunes, which for many centuries – but especially in the last two as a result of human influence – has filled up with sediments converting it into an extensive flood plain. The Natural Park affords protection to some 1708 hectares of marshes and dunes.

You can visit the Albufera Natural Park and follow one of the many trails, learn about the different species that inhabitat the area and do a spot of bird watching from one of the hides, which is especially popular in spring and autumn when migratory birds drop in on their way to or from the continent of Africa.

Take a Walk to Son Real

A great walk for people staying in Can Picafort is to the Necropolis of Son Real. There is a walk that goes from where the promenade ends at Son Baulo (at the end of Can Picafort) along a coastal path. You find an old cementery dated from 11 bc. The tombs right by the sea are fascinating, and they are carved out of local rock that the people oh so long ago quarried. The walk itself from Can Picafort is very pleasant as, where the promenade ends, you cross the beach at Son Baulo and then follow a path or you can walk on the sand by the dunes and to the archeological site. The views of Alcudia Bay are magnificent.

Sunbathe at the beach in Can Picafort

The beach at Can Picafort is one of Mallorca's best beaches, being part of Alcudia Bay, with fine sand, calm sea and amazing views. This is a big beach, with beach bars, amenities, sun beds and water activities. You can lounge on one of the sun beds on the beach, paying just a flat rate to stay there all day, including the use of a parasol too.

The most popular areas on the beach at Can Picafort are where some of the most popular beach bars are, such as the Casetas des Capellans at the end of the beach in the direction of Playa de Muro. This is a very popular spot with locals who like to set their towels down on the sand under the shade of the pine trees at the end of the beach. All the way at the other end of Can Picafort, the beach at Son Baulo is also very popular, close to Bananas Playa and Na Patana. The sea is very pleasant here and the views are marvellous. It is difficult to say which is the best part of the beach in Can Picafort with children, as the whole beach is very safe, the waves not too high and the sea not deep until you have gone very far out. There are lifeguard stations along the beach.

Enjoy the Nightlife

Can Picafort is not famous for its nightlife and yet boasts some very good bars and chill out pubs, plus discos like Skau or Charlys where there is always a very good atmosphere. Also along the sea front area you will find many bars where to have a drink with great views to the bay.

If you are looking for a great night out in the party resort of Magalluf or Ballerman, there is a weekly evening tour to take you there and back.

Go to the local water park

It is the Hidropark and, despite being the smallest water park in Mallorca, it offers a great variety of water slides, a wave pool and many areas for children. You can easily get there by taxi or by local bus.

Other water parks in Mallorca are situated in the south area of the island, and these are the Aqualand Arenal (the biggest water park with some of the best water slides) and the Western Water Park (a theme style water park with lots of water slides and a great choice to spend a day in the water). To both of them, we organise bus tours that include pick up at the hotels in Port Alcudia and the entrance to the water park.
