Can Picafort Hotels and Apartments on seperate page
At the centre of the bay of Alcudia on Majorca's northeast coast, C’an Picafort is situated on a marvelous stretch of golden sand, ideal for relaxing. However, if you prefer a more secluded setting, there are many coves fringing the craggy cliffs at Cabo Formentor, further along the northern coast.
Originally a small fishing village, the working harbour is still a focal point of the town, and the old part of the town is located around it. C’an Picafort has a range restaurants, bars, shops and nautical day trips on offer.
This old fishing village has been transferred into a higher class resort that is more in tune to a relaxing meal in a waterfront restaurant with dramatic sea views than the lively atmosphere of the partying resorts.
