Can Pastilla is a long established holiday resort just minutes from Palma de Mallorca airport. In fact the main flight path sends planes over the resort every couple of minutes during the day. Holidaymakers are predominantly Spanish, British and German which is reflected in the type of bars and restaurants that line the seafront.
Most of C’an Pastilla’s beach is a western extension of the 5km long Playa de Palma which has golden sand and plenty sunbeds with superb views towards the mountains which look down on the city of Palma to the west. The C’an Pastilla beach ends at the small marina called Club Nautic Sant Antoni where a smart restaurant offers great views the whole way across the Playa de Palma.
Just on the other side of the marina is the very quaint Cala Estancia which is a separate beach and is well sheltered on both sides. The Alexandra Hotel and Anfora Hotel are the nearest to this little beach with terraces overlooking it. Many more C’an Pastilla hotels are dotted around the streets directly behind this beach. Poppy’s bar is the place to go for Sky TV in this small area. The fish restaurant on the eastern side of Cala Estancia is highly recommended.
On the main beach there are many hotels right on the seafront and one street back which stretch from C’an Pastilla all the way to Arenal some 5km to the east. The Pinero Las Arenas and the El Cid Hotels are good choices.
As for bars and restaurants they change hands with such frequency that it’s difficult to recommend one over another. Ricky’s Tavern and the Manchester pub are popular amongst British tourists.
In general you’ll find a selection of Spanish, British and German options, just take a short stroll from the marina as far as the sports area next to the Fontanellas Playa hotel and you’ll get a good idea of what’s available to you
