Situated on the north east coast of Majorca, Alcudia is one of the most popular of the Balearic resorts and it is easy to see why. The Bay of Alcudia boasts one of the island’s finest stretch of beaches. Over 10km of fine white sand and shallow shelving waters. Alcudia is not a loud resort and the port area is relaxing by day and by night there is a wide choice of bars and restaurants to tempt you. Overall it is a very family friendly resort with the beach being its star attraction.
Alcudia’s main beach is a beautiful fine white sand beach. Its safe shallow waters make it ideal for children to play in. It has wooden walkways at the back making it very accessible. There is a playground at the northern end of the beach. Plenty of water sports are available including water skiing, jet skiing and paragliding. There are some beach bars / snack bars on the beach itself as well as a host of restaurants running along behind the beach. The beach in the port area isn’t quite as sandy but is handy for cafes and the nearby facilities of the port. Further up the bay you will find quieter spots with the same fine silky sand as the main beach.
The water park in Alcudia makes for a great family day out. Actually kids of all ages, even the grown up ones will enjoy this! Giant water slides, swimming pools with wave machines, 3 mini golf courses await, all in lush landscaped gardens. Or perhaps a trip to the S’Albufera Nature Reserve in the nearby town of C’An Picafort. A visit to the resort of Puerto Pollensa is another popular day trip.
The main road (the strip) leading into the resort is full of cafes, bars and restaurants. You will find plenty more in the old town as well as in the port area. Choices include everything from traditional Spanish, to steakhouses, to Chinese, to Indian, to British and Irish pubs serving food too.
The old town is home to the weekly markets. Usually there are 2 each week with both being held in and around the historic walled old town. If you don’t fancy any shopping be sure to take a walk around the quaint cobbled streets in the old town.
With a fantastic location on the stunning island of Majorca, beautiful beaches and an abundance of facilities it’s no wonder Alcudia is so popular. Please note images shown include general images of Majorca.
