Sports and Activities: Fun and adventure on the island!
Can Picafort is located at the centre of the largest bay of the Balearic isles, between two natural parks and large beaches of white sand ideal for hiking. Between the three population centres there are over 50km of motorway suitable for cycling and many routes for mountain biking. Our municipality offers options for all kinds of sports and has many municipal facilities.
Among the sporting events held, the karate, karting, tennis, football (regional and international), fishing (national and international), cross-country athletics, popular races, international half marathon, cycling races and mounting biking championships and national yoga meetings, among others, must be highlighted.
Can Picafort is found between two natural parks, the S´Albufera National Park and the Son Real Park. The natural environment makes this bay the ideal location for practicing this sport, consisting of walking with specially designed poles, more oriented towards health than performance.
Hiking and running are other options which can be carried out in the Llevant de Artá Park, just 20km away, as well as in Sierra de Tramuntana, 30km away, ideal for a trip.
Ask in your hotel, and they will be happy to give you all directions for practicing Nordic Walking, a sport which moves 600 muscles and 90% of the human body.
Bahía de Alcúdia is ideal for practicing watersports, preferred in the summer season. These sports can be enjoyed by everyone, as Can Picafort has play areas with slides and wave pools, as well as two marinas, one in Can Picafort and the other in Son Serra de Marina for Windsurfing, especially on the beach of Can Picafort, where our hotels are on the beachfront.
Scuba divers also have two diving centres for relaxing with the marine flora that Can Picafort offers.
In the hotels of Can Picafort, as well as relaxing and enjoying the good weather and the watersports on fine sand beaches, you will be able to play sports such as tennis, for which the municipal facilities offer five clay courts. Golf can be enjoyed in Can Picafort on various courses a short distance from our hotels.
Cycling is also an option as the location and range of hotels in Can Picafort make it the place chosen by many professional cyclists, as we have hotels which are perfect for cyclists in Mallorca; one of them with the exclusive Bikefriendly Accommodation hallmark: JS Alcudi Mar. Football is also available as Can Picafort has two grass pitches, one in the Santa Margalida area and the other in Can Picafort, close to our beachfront hotels.
