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.
