Relax at the beach

The beach in Alcudia Bay is the longest in Majorca at 11km, and one of the island’s very best. If you’re bringing the kids for a family holiday, they’ll love splashing in the shallow water and playing in the soft, white sand. Or if you need an adrenalin hit, you’ll want to check out the water sports at Playa Deportivo, which is the nearest part of Alcudia beach to the town and port. This lively area also gives you the best choice of beachside food and drink, although you’ll find cafés and toilets all along the Alcudia seafront for a great day at the beach wherever you lay your towel.

And if you’d like to just lie back, breathe out, and relax, we recommend you visit quiet Playa De Muro, at the far end of the beach. The sand here is next to the S’Albufera nature reserve, so it’s worth the trip out of town for the pretty scenery alone. You might be lucky enough to see some flamingos, too.
