Alcudia Beach, Port de Alcudia MallorcaWonderful white sand beach in the north of Mallorca
Alcudia Beach is a beautiful blue flag, fine white sand beach that stretches from the Port of Alcudia, along the 'golden mile' of hotel-backed coastline. The resort of Alcudia has long been popular with holiday makers coming to Majorca and the main reason is because of the beach.
It's popularity with families is clear because of the safe shallow water that makes it ideal for children to play in. The clear turquoise sea is a delight to swim in (you may have to walk in some distance for deeper water), or to watch from the comfort of your sun lounger. You have 3.4 km of beach to choose from, and the average depth of the beach is a staggering 80 metres. Unusual for Mallorca! The beach has wooden walkways at the back of the beach to allow for easier access for the disabled and for pushchairs.
It does get busy in the summer months as the purpose built resort behind the beach fills up with holiday makers. The beach by the Port of Alcudia doesn't have the best sand but is handy for cafes and facilities. Further up the bay finds quieter spots and silky soft sand as you head more towards Playa de Muro. There is a public bus service or you can park in the dedicated free parking areas, or on the roads behind the beach.
A number of boat trips start from here, these range from gentle half day cruises to full-on diving expeditions. Water sports are popular in this area and there are many restaurants to choose from along the beachfront.
Life guards are on duty during the busier periods. No pets are allowed on the beach. Toilets and showers are plentiful.
