Can Picafort is located in the North-east area of Mallorca, near the well known Bay of Alcudia. A former fishing village, Can Picafort is a small, lower key resort with glorious Blue Flag white sandy beaches, calm crystal clear waters and a spectacular mountainous coastline. Like many towns in this part of Mallorca, Can Picafort is close to many early Bronze Age settlements and has a very ancient history. With picture postcard scenery Can Picafort makes for a delightful villa holiday destination. Try out some traditional Mallorcan cuisine, wander around the village or just simply relax in the sun and watch the world go by.
