Alcudia is a great place for a holiday be it with friends or with children and everyone is very friendly. The beach is lovley it has clear blue water with golden sands and in the evening there is plenty to do like walking along the walkway that is down by the beach which goes up to the marina. There are great places to eat with a good choice of food and bars to sit and have a drink or two Its a place you can go year after year and always enjoy it.

Alcudia

The port and holiday resort of Alcudia lies on the north east coast of Mallorca, and is one of the most attractive areas on the island. It is considered as the favorite resort with families.

Alcudia has a fantastic 10km stretch of soft sandy beach, ideal for all the family and there are plenty of attractions around the resort. Sightseers will enjoy the historic old town while shoppers search for a bargain in the weekly market. Beach lovers have plenty of space to relax, while the more active have a variety of water sports and activities to keep them occupied.

Cultural Attractions
There are some stunning Renaissance and Rococo palaces from 15th 16th and 17th centuries. If you are feeling energetic enough then the climb up Sa Talaia d'Alcudia at over 400 m gives an impressive panorama and then there are the caves of San Martin, where many of the small caves are in fact chapels to various saints.

Also close by is the Museu Monografica de Pollenca approx. 1.5 km south of Alcudia which exhibits statues, jewellery and other remains found in the Roman settlement of Pollenca

Natural surroundings
For the tourist there are clean beaches and quiet calas (bays) near by, as well as peaceful Aucanada pine forests and spectacular stops like Pinar Cape, Ses Caletas, Morer Vermell, Gros Cape, Manresa Cape, Mal Pas. Other sites are the Victoria Sanctuary 3 Km outside the town, Casa Consistorial, Iglesia (church) Parroquial, Oratorio de Santa Ana, Torre (tower) Mayor.

The Natural wetlands of Albufera are close by, a nature sanctuary with many rare birds, fish, amphibians and plants. It’s a delightful place to relax and listen to the sounds of the land.

Leisure & Recreation
The coastline is ideal for sailing and nautical sports – sailing schools, windsurfing, and water skiing, fishing and also diving. The resort offers a sports centre where you can enjoy a game of football, basketball or volleyball and a water park for hours of fun. Horse riding is becoming increasingly popular as the port area provides long routes through the scenic sheltered countryside.

Eating out
The large resort features an abundance of restaurants, which cater to all tastes and budgets and an array of pubs and music bars provide a choice of evening entertainment.

Cuisine
Traditional food is being rediscovered in the Balearics and varies from island to island, but reflects the cuisine of Catalonia. Langosta a la parrilla is one such dish, which accompanies spiny lobster with the local mayonnaise.

Not to be missed is an Ensaimada, a spiral-shaped yeast bun to have with your breakfast coffee or as a tea- time snack

Climate
Mallorca enjoys a typical Mediterranean weather, with mild winters and hot summers. During the months of July and August, the weather is hot and beautifully sunny, boasting around 11 hours of sun daily.

During the winter, the weather can get chilly, but is generally you can enjoy fine, mild weather on most days.

Alcudia review

Old Alcudia and the surrounding were very nice. Port Alcudia was too commercial for our taste. We preferred to go to Pollenca and other parts of the island.

Alcudia review

The port of alcudia was lovely, it's location means you have some quality restaurants on your doorstep and it's only 10 mins away from the old town.

Alcudia review

Alcudia is a very nice place to stay, the transport is very good and not too expensive however If you don't plan to spend your whole week on the beach I would recommend to rent a car. Don't miss going to Formentor beach, it is paradise !

Alcudia review

Having stayed in Alcudia last year it was nice to go and see the places we knew and as it was early in the holiday season, it was amazing to see some of the shops and restaurants transformed from being boarded up to within days being fresh and clean and open for business. On an evening visit to the old town we found many traditional restaurants that are well worth a visit and the town itself is very beautiful.
