Many people return year after year to enjoy their holidays in the hotels and apartments of Can Picafort, where there are many bars, cafés and shops, as well as all kinds of services aimed at helping tourists to make the most of their stay, such as the sailing club of Club NÓutic de Can Picafort.

sa canova

Sa Canova

Sa Canova is an unspoilt beach which is almost 2,000m long and 100m wide, with a unique range of dunes behind, of which a large part is covered by a pine wood. Generally speaking, on the Mediterranean dunes are found parallel to the beach, but at Sa Canova the dunes are arranged at an oblique angle to the coast and spread inland, running as far as 2km from the coast. This is due to the intensity and constant nature of the Tramuntana wind, which blows from north to south - the same direction as the dunes. For this reason, this beach is popular with windsurfers.
