C’an Picafort, Mallorca – beach with golden sand dunes

C’an Picafort is about 1 hours drive from Casa Fortuna 74km. There many other scenic routes that may be shorter in distance but take more time



At the eastern end of the wide bay of Alcúdia where the golden sand meets sand dunes you’ll find the smaller resort of C’an Picafort. If it’s your first visit to this resort then hop on the mini train and take a tour round. It will be bigger than you initially thought!

It has a lovely beach backed by a wide lovely promenade. It’s perfect for daytime strolling or sitting at a cafe in the early evening watching your fellow holidaymakers strolling about trying to make that difficult decision of the night; where to eat!

At the end of the promenade you’ll find the picturesque harbour which originally was the centre of this old fishing village before the influence of tourism. A good selection of boat trips depart from here giving you the chance to explore the coast and next door is a small marina full of pleasure craft.

Elsewhere the resort is filled with pedestrian streets lined with palm trees and packed with shops, bars and interesting eateries.

We visited recently (October 13) and as the wind was strong it made for a brisk walk and some dramatic seas, very much enjoyed by the kite surfers further round the bay.
