A big, modern resort crammed with shops and entertainment, Alcudia is the equivalent of a toybox for sun-and-fun-lovers. Wrapped along five miles of Majorca’s northern Bay of Alcudia and framed by dramatic mountain peaks, its beach is a humdinger.
Here, light golden sands stretch for an amazing 11 kilometres, lapped by dazzling seas and strewn with sunshades, bronzing bodies and watersports rentals. As soon as you arrive, come on down. Fling off your shoes and revel in the soft sands beneath your soles before letting the crystal-clear waves trickle around your toes. The kids will love it here too, thanks to the way the soft sands glide slowly into shallow, placid waters.
When it’s time to eat, the palm-lined waterfront comes up with endless international restaurants to keep every palate and pocket happy. If authentic Spanish dishes are more your style, stroll to the picturesque harbourside for a tapas lunch or platters of ocean-fresh seafood. And once finished, return to the sands, popping into the bevy of souvenir shops en-route. Alternatively, save your Euros for Alcudia’s renowned Tuesday and Sunday markets.
And don’t miss all the kids’ entertainment either, like boat trips, go-karting and the exciting local water park.
Fancy some sightseeing? Be sure to experience Alcudia’s old town close by. A shrine to the Romans, Moors and Spanish who occupied it, its atmospheric streets and nearby Roman amphitheatre will whisk you back centuries.
Come dusk, don’t expect heavy-duty partying. Alcudia’s relaxed pace holds sway, with evenings revolving around moonlit hotel dinners and waterfront strolls. Should you ever fancy quickening the tempo though, head for the harbourside where a row of discos and bars light up the night.
The hotel also offers a daytime and evening entertainment programme including activities, quizzes and professional shows.
Palma Majorca Airport is approx 61 km from the resort of Alcudia.
