Villa holidays to Ca'n Picafort on the north-east coast of Majorca are all about long sun-baked beaches, palm-lined promenades and laidback living.
Stroll the wide, palm-studded streets of Paseo Colon dotted with seafront shops and bars leading down to the harbour, where you have a choice of delicious seafood restaurants with outdoor seating cooled by the Balearic breeze. Also on your doorstep are colourful weekly markets, ancient ruins of a prehistoric cemetery and the 2,500-hectare S’Albufera National Park, boasting a fantastic bird population. Located within the vast Alcudia Bay means that the resort benefits from over three kilometres of clean, soft sand that shelves gently into the crystal-clear sea, making it an excellent choice for a relaxing family beach holiday. There is plenty of space on the Blue Flag-awarded golden-sands with sunloungers and parasols for hire, while watersports facilities include pedalos, scuba-diving, and windsurfing.
Just a 20-minute drive north brings you to Alcudia, a coastal resort with a glamorous marina and old walled town. Experience both sides of this fascinating place during a day trip, marvelling at museums cycling in the countryside or simply luxuriating on the seven kilometres of silky sand.
