With an entire 10 kilometres of sand from Ca’n Picafort in the south, to Port d'Alcúdia in the north; Playa de Alcúdia sits in the middle and is the largest of all the Balearic Islands’ beaches. Unsurprisingly, it offers a wide range of facilities with everything you could ever need, including: numerous beach bars and restaurants, a great selection of water sports, sun beds, parasols, ample car parking… plus the added bonus of public toilets, showers and even a WiFi connection! Effortlessly, this beach becomes incredibly busy in the summer months as the purpose-built resort fills up with tourists.

Lined with an excellent selection of beach cafes, bars and restaurants along the beachfront and in the streets behind, you’ll be spoilt for choice on local and international dining options.

There’s a real variety of nightlife across the bay of Alcudia, with different vibes and genres for everyone. An evening spent in one of their many bars and pubs, offering live music and outdoor seating, will often lead to later festivities in the lively nightclubs and discos.

Setting & Location

Port d'Alcúdia offers the largest and most popular holiday resort on the island, especially loved by families with small children. The resort provides numerous shops, activities and playgrounds surrounding the most ‘child-friendly beach’ in Mallorca. In addition to this the nearby waterpark, a stone’s throw away from the quaint town of Alcudia which is rich in heritage and ensures that Port d'Alcúdia remains one of Mallorca’s greatest tourist attractions.

The beach divides into two sections with the busier half ranging from Port d'Alcúdia to Ciudad Blanca and where you’ll find the majority of amenities and services. But head further south around the Bay of Alcúdia, towards Playa de Muro for quieter and more peaceful spots.
