C'an Picafort/Playa de Muro Hotels


Many of the Hotels in both resorts offer All-Inclusive Holidays. As the demand for this type of holiday has increased greatly, many restaurants, cafes, bars and shops have suffered from the loss of trade due to the lack of money tourists are willing to spend.

Some businesses have closed down altogether and many have shortened their trading from 7 to 4 or 5 months only.

Fire damage C'an Picafort

fire damage in c'an picafort

This is an area of countryside near to C'an Picafort and Playa de Muro which was damaged by a fire in 2011.

It is vital for all tourists to take extreme care when in the countryside, particularly when the weather is very hot and dry. This is when fires can start easily and spread very quickly destroying anything in their path.


C'an Picafort and Playa de Muro are modern tourist areas enjoyed by many

people visiting Mallorca. We hope that the increase of all-inclusive hotel holidays

will not result in a decline of the overall tourist amenities currently provided in the area!
