Ca’n Picafort is a holiday resort on the northeastern side of the island; it is situated close to the Parc Natural de s'Albufera de Mallorca, which is the most important wetland reserve in all of the Balearic Islands. Originally the area was a small fishing village, but has since grown up and become a popular destination for those looking for a slice of heaven with an easygoing pace.
There is a stunning horse-show shaped bay, which has pristine white sands and sparkling blue sea, the length of the beach area totals 13km so you will be guaranteed of a good spot. Like many Spanish resorts and popular destinations, there is a wide variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from along the sea front. There is also a weekly market, which is full to the brim of stalls selling everything from general beach gear to handmade crafts.
Son Real Necropolis is about a twenty-minute walk from Son Baulo Beach and it is a prehistoric burial ground that dates back to the Iron Age. The site itself is unlike many other burial sites, it literally looks like a massive jumble of around 110 tombs of varying sizes and shapes, from circles to horse-shoe.
There is of course the nearby wetland reserve S'albufera; the park is home to over 10,000 species of birds, as well as a number of rare plants. There are walk and cycle ways throughout the park with a visitors centre and exhibition as well.
Nearby attractions include El Laberinto, which can be found in Playa de Muro that is less than 3 km away. It is a giant adventure maze, great fun for kids and adults of all ages. In neighbouring Alcudia there is Hidropark, which is a massive water park.
The town is home to a rather unusual festival known as the ‘Fiesta of the ducks’ and it attracts some 3000 visitors each year. As well as the mass release of ducks, there is live entertainment, music. It is held in mid-August and starts around midday when two boats anchor themselves in the harbour and then the 350 ducks are released into the sea. The competition revolves around people, who are usually masked, jumping into the sea to rescue the ducks; the person who has ‘saved’ the most ducks is declared the winner.
