Alcudia was originally a small Roman town, but stunning natural resources and one of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean have made Alcudia a leading resort in Majorca. Nestled behind a mountain ridge on Pollensa Bay, Alcudia is surrounded by a number of small beach resorts and tourist facilities. Port d’Alcudia is a purpose build resort taking advantage of the white sandy beaches and historical attractions of Alcudia.
Although the old town of Alcudia has no beach itself, an apartment in Alcudia has access to many beaches along the coast varying in size, crowdedness and texture. Marina beach, the main beach from an Alcudia villa, is wide and attracts many sunbathers and kite-surfers, and Bonaire is a haven for water sports, even boasting a small marina where banana boating, scuba diving and sailing can be arranged. The resorts of Port d’Alcudia and Playa de Muro have beautiful white sandy beaches to enjoy.
The nightlife in Alcudia is very pleasant, and although it cannot be described as rowdy, there are some exceptionally nice restaurants which also double up as restaurants, including La Sala opposite the town hall. Shopping in Alcudia is good, with many small boutiques and a thriving weekly market on a Tuesday and a Sunday.
There are many excellent sites to see from a holiday house in Alcudia. The walled town and the important Roman ruins of the Ciudad Romana, including the impressive amphitheatre, have drawn visitors to use holiday accommodation in Alcudia and Pollensa for many years.
Walking and cycling in the mountainous areas behind Alcudia are magnificent options when staying in the Alcudia region. The mountain walks and rides subject you to peace, tranquillity and scenery that you will never forget. Golf has also emerged as a popular activity from a holiday villa in Alcudia, Northern Majorca. There are now two golf courses, of which the Club de Golf Alcanada is the more taxing, with 18 links style holes.
Puerto Alcudia has gained a reputation as one of the best Mediterranean holiday destinations. The stunning beach is backed by a throng of shops, restaurants and bars, and is generally considered to be the nicest beach in the whole of the Mediterranean, which is certainly not an easy title to gain! The marina on the Paseo Maritimo is a great place to charter a yacht and take to the waters, and the Water Park and karting track should entertain children on a family holiday using a holiday rental in the Alcudia area.
The resort of Playa de Muro is the gateway to the wetlands natural Park of S’Albufera, a remarkable area of natural beauty and diverse wildlife. Walking and use of the unbelievable beaches have allowed the Alcudia holiday apartments and villas in Playa de Muro to treat holiday makers for many years. Scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing are hugely popular activities in the safe bathing waters of Playa de Muro.
Even during the height of summer, the beaches and walking trails of Majorca are a pleasure to explore, as temperatures are usually below 30˚C, with average temperatures in July and August of 25˚C. Winters remain mild, seldom dipping below 10˚C.
Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) is located 5 miles east of the Capital, Palma. There are many busses and taxis which connect the airport with the rental villas and apartments of Alcudia.
