The former fishing village of Can Pastilla has transformed into a lively resort where you can bask on the beach, stroll along the palm-lined promenade and dine at al fresco restaurants. Lifeguards patrol Can Pastilla and make it a popular destination for families.
Things to do in Can Pastilla
Can Pastilla is fringed by a powder-white stretch of sand that’s perfect for sunbathing. Lay down your towel on the sand or splurge on a deck chair shaded by a colourful beach umbrella. There are plenty of water sports to choose from, including parasailing, jet skiing, windsurfing and banana boats.
A palm-lined promenade skirts the beach and is great for stretching your legs. If you don’t feel like walking, hitch a ride on the miniature train. Beach bars known as “balnearios” dot the promenade and are great for sipping ice-cold drinks with a view. You’ll also find restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, paella and other Spanish dishes.
Can Pastilla is just steps from Palma Aquarium, where you can get up close with sharks, stingrays and colourful fish. The AquaDome 3D theatre immerses you in the magical underwater world of humpback whales, while shark dives in the main tank will get your heart racing.
Fast road and bus connections make Can Pastilla a great base for sightseeing in Palma. The Majorcan capital has a breezy Mediterranean vibe and will charm you with its palm-lined boulevards and grand sandstone architecture. The magnificent Santa Maria Cathedral has been towering over the bay since the 13th century.
Getting around Can Pastilla
Can Pastilla is compact and easy to get around on foot and parking is available along the promenade and in the town centre. The resort is a 15-minute drive from the Palma city centre. Palma de Mallorca Airport is a five-minute walk or short taxi ride from Can Pastilla.
