Alcudia holidays have got everything you could possibly need for a fun-filled getaway in the sun. Located on the north coast of Majorca, it’s a popular resort with plenty of shops and restaurants to enjoy and a beautiful white-sand beach with Blue Flag status. You can spend your days relaxing here, or making a splash at the action-packed Hidropark waterpark. But no holiday to Alcudia would be complete without exploring the bustling markets and ancient sites of the charming old town.
Things to do
You’ll never be short of things to do in Alcudia. You can easily spend your days soaking up the sun on the beautiful, white-sand beach, getting lost in a good book or trying your hand at one of the many different water sports available for you. If you’ve got the kids with you and want to keep the theme of water going, spend a day racing down the slides and making a splash at Hidropark or visiting Palma Aquarium. Take time out to explore the charming old town and discover all its ancient treasures, making sure to browse the local markets and try the popular sobrasada sausage. In the evenings, enjoy the buzz that builds around the marina as the bars and restaurants fill up.
Alcudia’s beach is incredibly long, stretching around a sweeping bay all the way to the resort of Ca’n Picafort. The calm, shallow water at Alcudia beach is perfect for families, while the peaceful area at Playa De Muro is made for quieter holidays. It’s here that you’ll find the piled-up sand dunes and salt water lagoons of the S’Albufera nature reserve, which is a lovely place to go for a walk or sit and watch the birds.
History and culture
There’s lots of history in this part of Majorca, even right inside Alcudia. The walled Old Town dates back to the 14th century and it can feel like you’re walking back in time when you wander amongst the ancient churches and houses in the winding little streets. There are also Roman ruins here, including a theatre and the remains of a town called Pollentia.
There’s also lots of heritage in Alcudia’s menus, from the traditional places to eat and drink in the atmospheric Old Town to the seafood restaurants serving local specialities, such as sea bass cooked in rock salt, on the marina in Puerto de Alcudia.
Fun days out
You don’t have to look hard to find ways to spend your time during your holiday to Alcudia. Just outside town, for example, is Hidropark, northern Majorca’s only waterpark. And there’s also a variety of boat trips available from Puerto de Alcudia. Cycling is a favourite holiday activity in Alcudia, as a bike ride is the perfect way to get to more out-of-the-way areas, such as S’Albufera nature reserve, or into the countryside.
