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 a 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 its charming Old Town.
Things to do
Whether you’re soaking up the sun along toe-sinking sands while getting lost in a good book, or trying your hand at one of the many different watersports available, you’ll never be short of things to do. Or, stick with the water theme, if you’ve got the kids with you spend a day racing down the slides at Alcudia Waterpark or visiting Palma Aquarium.
Take time out to explore the medieval Old Town and discover all its timeless treasures, making sure to browse the local stalls and try the popular sobrasada spicy sausage. In the evenings, enjoy the buzz that builds around the marina as the bars and restaurants fill up, serving cocktails with sweeping sea vistas.
Alcudia’s beach is incredibly long, stretching around an idyllic bay all the way to the resort of Ca’n Picafort. The calm, shallow water is perfect for families, while the peaceful area at Playa De Muro is made for quieter holidays to Alcudia. It’s here that you’ll find the piled-up sand dunes and salt water lagoons of 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 among the ancient churches and houses in its winding streets. There are also Roman ruins here, including a theatre and the remains of a town called Pollentia.
You’ll also find lots of heritage in Alcudia’s menus, from the traditional eateries in the atmospheric Old Town to the seafood restaurants along the marina in Puerto de Alcudia, serving local specialities, such as sea bass cooked in rock salt.
Fun days out
You don’t have to look hard to find ways to spend your time during your holiday to Alcudia. Just outside the resort is Hidropark, jam-packed with wet and wild adventures. Do you dare take on its kamikaze slide, or is the wave pool more your scene? And there’s also a variety of boat trips available from Puerto de Alcudia, sailing along the northern coast of Majorca. You’ll stop at mysterious caves for a spot of snorkelling, kayak the Med and sunbathe on deck. Cycling is another must in this scenic hotspot when you want to venture off the beaten track into the countryside.

Things to do
There are lots of things to do in Cala Millor. Whether you’re heading to the Spanish resort with a loved one or the little ones, your days will be full of fun in the sun. From history, to scenery and everything in between, you’re sure to find a piece of Cala Millor that’s perfect for you. The beach is beautiful, with powder fine white sands and turquoise waves.

The surrounding streets are lined with authentic restaurants, traditional English pubs and cool cocktail bars, meaning that there’s something for everyone to enjoy on your holiday to Cala Millor.
You’ll also be in a perfect location for days out and sightseeing, as there’s a lot to see and do in this part of Majorca, including the Dragon Caves (Cuevas del Drach), probably the island’s most famous natural attraction.
Beach life and sea life
As well as its own sandy beach, Cala Millor is within easy reach of a lovely little beach at Cala Bona, you can walk or cycle there along the seafront promenade. It’s quieter there, as Cala Bona is smaller and more traditional and also a former fishing village. If you’re into water sports, though, stick to Cala Millor where there are plenty of them there for you to try.
The Mediterranean Sea around Majorca is rich with colourful marine life, even coral, so you might like to go snorkelling, scuba-diving or on a glass-bottomed boat. For a much wider range of sea life (and other animals), the Marineland Aquarium is a great day out, especially for families.
History and culture
Cala Millor may not have an old town but it still has history. Before it was a beach resort, it was a wild stretch of coast, and part of it has been preserved in the peaceful Punta de n’Amer Nature Reserve on one of the headlands that protect the bay.
But until you’ve been to the city of Palma de Mallorca, you’ve missed out on the crowning glory of the island’s historical and cultural heritage. Alongside the art galleries and museums is some fascinating architecture, especially the cathedral with its interiors redesigned by Gaudi.

Cala d’Or holidays are an eclectic mix of the sleek and the chic, tempered with old-school charm. Cala d’Or started out as a small fishing village, which expanded to meet the rising demands of visitors and tourists. It’s kept much of its old charm, so among the gleaming hotels, you’ll find narrow backstreets housing quirky shops, traditional restaurants, and local bars.
The jewel in the crown is the stunning marina, which adds a whiff of Cannes sophistication to the resort. If you’re a confirmed water lover then you’ll enjoy the range of marine activities on offer, including boat tours and kayaking. Cyclists can take advantage of the warm weather and excellent riding routes, or you can hit the beach with the family and get some serious sunbathing in. Don’t leave your holiday without enjoying a grilled sea bass meal in one of the scenic harbour restaurants.
A relaxing place to stay
You’ll find clusters of shops and places to eat and drink around each cove (or ‘cala’), so you’ll have lots of choice; they’re all linked by a mini train, making it easy to get from one to another. The area’s changed a lot since it was discovered by a group of artists nearly a hundred years ago, but Cala d’Or’s still one of the quieter resorts in Majorca. You can still enjoy the same beautiful summer weather, picturesque views and pine-scented air. Hire a bike for the full effect, or spend a day at the beautiful Parc Natural de Mondrago, a coastal nature reserve that’s not far from Cala d’Or.
From the luxury yachts bobbing in the marina to memorable scuba diving trips, most of the highlights of your holiday in Cala d’Or will come from the sea. You can visit hidden coves and nearby resorts along the coast, or hire a boat for a leisurely excursion on the water. Perhaps the biggest treat of all is the mouth-watering seafood served in the classy restaurants on Cala d’Or marina. Follow your meal with cocktails for the perfect evening. Or, if you prefer your evenings a little livelier, make your way to the karaoke bars and live music in the mini resort centres.
