Can Pastilla   beach is only a short distance from Palma de Mallorca. Very close to the airport. The area is a mix of residential property with the odd hotel in between. There is bus service to Palma de Mallorca, 7 Kilometres away.  Lat,Long 39.5348, 2.7171

In this place you also find Cala Estancia ( 39.5349, 2.7132 ) . This is the more quiet part of Can Pastilla, with quiet roads and villas. The main street of Can Pastilla is busy and noisy, and very narrow. Lately a renovation of the waterfront has been carried out.
Before and after the high season Can Pastilla is quieting down, and in spring and autumn it is a very convenient place, because you are near the city of Palma if the weather, should not be suitable for the beach.

During the winter the kite surfing, surfing and wind surfing is continuing from the beach near Can Pastilla. In Can Pastilla you also find one of the few surf shops on
Mallorca. Mainly kite stuff
