What to do in Can Pastilla? Activities and sports in the south of Mallorca
What can you find in Can Pastilla?
Can Pastilla, and especially Playa de Palma, are ideal places for sports enthusiasts. Due to its fantastic summer climate, Can Pastilla offers a wide variety of sports such as cycling (CYCLING CENTRE LINK), scuba diving, golf, Nordic walking and even horse riding, as well as calmer sports such as sailing, Playa de Palma being one of the places where the Copa del Rey and Trofeo Princesa Sofía competitions are held.
Can Pastilla and Playa de Palma offer two Yacht Clubs. The Club de Can Pastilla is located in Bahía de Palma, a few kilometres from the city centre and the airport. With several sport services and moorings, as well as the official offices for 470 class sailing and windsurfing, and famous boat races such as the Trofeo Princesa Sofía, make Can Pastilla one of the foremost yacht clubs in the area.
Here we also find S’Arenal, in the middle of Bahía de Palma, with all kinds of services in its vicinity, but which is difficult to access due to its third quadrant winds. It is one of the few ports of Palma de Mallorca which is protected from north and north easterly winds, having a good shipyard and dry marina where boats can be left in winter.
With the perfect climate and winds for practicing this enjoyable sport, Can Pastilla and Playa de Palma are paradises for its enthusiasts. The area has large first class courses which allow a peaceful, calm game near the sea, with unbeatable views and beautiful sunsets with the highest quality standards. The island has 20 courses which hold important tournaments such as the Mallorca Classic.
Do you want to walk and discover the area from a different and special perspective? Nordic Walking is a type of hiking which is gaining popularity by being one of the most beneficial for health. It is a sport in which two poles are used, moving all muscles of the body, and is ideal for the mild climate of Palma, which is the perfect setting with beautiful landscapes and natural spaces to discover on different routes such as the Ruta de Pedra en sec and the Ruta Artà – Lluc.
