C’an Pastilla, Majorca Travel Guide
C’an Pastilla on the south coast of Majorca is a Majorcan favorite destination among British tourists. Located only 5 miles southeast of Palma, on Palma Bay, C’an Pastilla is a much calmer and more relaxed resort than its neighbors.
Based on the ancient harbor, this resort has 3 nice beaches and an excellent marina. One beach is protected by the harbor, the second next to the marina and the third beach is an extension of the famous Playa de Palma which has exceptional beach facilities, lots of water sports, beachside cafes and bars. If you are looking for adrenaline then why not try paragliding, if not then you can enjoy scuba diving, windsurfing, and jet-skiing.
Palma de Mallorca
Take a trip to vibrant Palma where you will find museums, a Gothic Cathedral, Bellver Castle, Palma Aquarium, great shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars. It is best to spend a couple of days visiting Palma as there is so much to see and do. There is a great mini train that runs from C’an Pastilla to Palma or if you are feeling more energetic you can take a leisurely stroll along the promenade to the capital. Nearby Arenal has the best mini-golf course in Majorca and a great waterpark, Aqualand El Arenal which offers hours of fun for all the family, especially the kids. Other interesting places to visit include the coastal towns of Soller, Deya and Valldemosa, the town of Alcudia, the caves at Drach and Ham, and the Lluc Monastery. And then there are the many boat trips and cruises around the islands which make a great day out.
If you are looking for quiet relaxing days along with lively evening entertainment C’an Pastilla is an excellent choice for your bargain holidays. You can spend the day relaxing at one of the resort’s beautiful beaches and then enjoy the nightlife in Palma or Arenal. Arenal is a particular favorite with the 18-30’s who like to party.
C’an Pastilla is a sun lover paradise during the months of June, July, and August when temperatures reach and often exceed 30C. Even during the winter months, temperatures reach around 16C with plenty of sunshine. Because Majorca enjoys a great climate all year round you can take last minute holidays to enjoy the many open-air bars and clubs at the beachfront or just relax in the traditional Spanish garden restaurants.
