Welcome to C'an Pastilla

C'an Pastilla

Over 40 years ago, C'an Pastilla was one of the first Mallorcan holiday resorts to gain popularity, particularly with British holidaymakers, and it has started to show its age somewhat. It is set on the island's south coast, close to the capital Palma, and rather unfortunately, is right next to Palma's busy international airport. C'an Pastilla is linked to the more German-orientated El Arenal by a walkway and has a long, lovely beach with plenty of sun-loungers and umbrellas (there have been some complaints of touts, but a firm 'no' should do the trick). A mini tourist train runs along the C'an Pastilla sea front and also links the resort to El Arenal.

C'an Pastilla is a low-key holiday resort, with much of the nightlife centring on British-style bars and hotel entertainment; El Arenal tends to offer more in the way of nightlife. A key feature of the resort are the characteristic Balnearios; a collection of beach huts that spread to neighbouring El Arenal and house toilet facilities, showers and a snack kiosk.

The town itself consists of a crowded main strip with bars, small shops and a charming marina to enjoy on holiday. Besides hotel entertainment, there are various watersports on offer in C'an Pastilla, as well as the huge waterpark at El Arenal and a mini-golf course, jeep safaris, cruises and more. A regular bus service runs to Palma de Mallorca and there are also neighbouring villages and historical sites to explore. More often than not, C'an Pastilla is merely a stop off point for visitors to the island, but those who stay can expect a pleasant, relaxing beach holiday.
