Alcudia boasts some of the best beaches in the north of Majorca. Between Alcudia and Pollença bays, these sands look out over crystal-clear waters with year-round moderate temperatures and the tiniest of waves. Extensive bright white sand beaches, small rocky beaches, pebble coves… The beaches in Alcudia offer nice contrasts in a quiet environment.
Main beaches in Alcudia:
- Alcudia beach: It is the beach that lies closest to the centre of town and the port, and offers services and facilities. It is the longest stretch of sand in the Balearic Islands (7km) and is perfect for a day on the white, fine sand with kids or to do all kinds of sports.
- Aucanada beach: Aucanada has a cove that is perfect for a day on the beach with your family, as it is the beach of choice of locals who want to escape the crowds. It is 200m long and boasts a lovely pine forest by the seashore and a small island off the coast, with one of the most famous lighthouses in Majorca. Poncet is a nearby cove with a fishing village spirit, and Es Faralló is close by too.
- La Victoria beaches: La Victoria has managed to keep a most genuine character in the north of Majorca. The area is peppered with small coves and stretches of sand. Tourists generally go to S’Illot beach, which owes its name to the islet that protects it from the wind. The area is very quiet and soaked in natural beauty, playing host to summer camps for local children.
- Coll Baix beach: Coll Baix is one of the few unspoilt beaches in Majorca. It is 250m long and access is not easy, as it is in a cape away from it all, and you must drive across several kilometres of pine forests. Its dark grey sand contrasts with the turquoise-blue colour of the sea. Coll Baix is one of the best spots for mooring boats in the area.
