Without a doubt, when it comes to holidays in Puerto de Alcudia, time spent on the beach here is something that you will definitely enjoy, as local beaches are the main tourist attraction of the area. There are several in the vicinity; choose from any of them and make the most of your holidays in Majorca to the full. Nature, views, sunsets or should you prefer, sunrises in Puerto de Alcudia will all help you to relax and forget all your worries.
One of the most famous beaches is the impressive Playa de Muro beach. It is 5.2 kilometres long and so one of the most extensive beaches in Alcudia bay and, ultimately, in the whole island of Majorca. However, when going for holidays in Alcudia please bear in mind other worthwhile options. For example, S'Aucanada - very quiet 3.5 kilometre long family beach located close to Puerto de Alcudia is a perfect destination if you are planning Majorca family holidays and want to keep all the family happy.
In spite of being smaller, La Victoria beach - a coquettish bay covered with sand, stones and rocks, close to S'Illot, is also worth visiting. The same could be said about Coll Baix an Alcudia beach which is practically pristine. In addition, drop to Sant Pere, a sandy beach bristled with rocks, located in residential area of Es Mal Pas, right next to Sant Joan beach, which is also great location to relax, enjoy the sun and a good swim.
And if you were wondering what other places of interest shouldn’t be missed during your stay in Puerto de Alcudia, apart from the beaches, we highly recommend exploring the indescribable town of Alcudia itself. Despite having slightly over 21.000 inhabitants it was founded in 1523. Among the must-see places is the old town with its medieval layout surrounded by two walled enclosures, its narrow streets are incredibly picturesque, and some buildings still retain typical elements of the Late Middle Ages.
Should you choose to spend your holidays in Alcudia, visit Can Picafort beach, as well as the spectacular Cap de Formentor, the Northernmost Point of Majorca, which locals call the ‘meeting point of the winds’. And it is highly recommended to drop to the calm Puerto de Pollença or admire the Roman ruins of Pollentia - an ancient colony dating back from the republican and imperial Roman times. This archaeological site will give you an opportunity to travel back in time and behold truly unique remains with your own eyes.
