Can Picafort Guide

The people of Mallorca love fiestas. Singing, dancing, eating, parades, and fireworks highlight these colorful events. C'an Picafort is the center of some of the most colorful, entertaining fiestas on the island.

The first two fiestas of summer are in mid-July and are held near C'an Picafort in Santa Margalida and Son Serra. Santa Margalida's fiesta lasts five full days and entertains visitors and locals alike with a variety of sports, games, and other activities. The main event is the pageant of Beatas, young girls selected to represent their town.

Son Serra's fiesta in honor of la Mare de Deu del Carme in mid-July is a local fiesta rarely seen by tourists. Don't miss this event if at all possible. It shows that festivals aren't put on just for tourists.

In August, it seems every day is a fiesta. Fun and entertaining events abound, such as traditional folk music and dancing, competitions (like climbing a greased pole), sandcastle building, and even a fire run with devils. Nighttime brings parties, more music, and even a fireworks display.

Perhaps the most controversial fiesta takes place in mid-August. The Fiesta of Ducks in C'an Picafort attracts over 3,000 visitors. Around noon, a few boats anchor in the harbor and release 350 ducks. The object is for swimmers to jump in and capture the ducks. Care is taken that the ducks are not harmed, and captured ducks are released in the wild shortly after.

The last fiesta of the summer is in September in honor of Sant Catalina Tomas in nearby Santa Margalida. Devils run through the streets ringing bells and waking up the town. A procession then winds through town and is followed by a celebration of music, dancing, wine, and food.

C'an Picafort makes a good base for families and couples attending the fiestas. Two excellent beaches invite sunbathers and watersports enthusiasts. There are many hotels, restaurants, and shops in town. C'an Picafort is adjacent to the 4,000 acre (1709 hectares) nature reserve of S 'Albufera. Over 10,000 species of birds inhabit this important wetland area.

Wise travelers will book early for the fiesta season in C'an Picafort, but last-minute deals can be found on the Internet or at your local travel agency.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
