Alcúdia Beach is a beautiful blue flag, fine white sand beach that stretches from Port d'Alcúdia along a 'golden mile' of hotel-backed coastline. The resort of Port d'Alcúdia has long been popular with holidaymakers coming to Majorca, the main reason for that being this beach.
Playa de Alcúdia is the largest beach of all the Balearic islands thanks to its 7 kilometres of sand. Nowadays, it boasts a wide range of facilities from beach bars and restaurants to watersports, public toilets, showers, car parks, sunbeds, parasols and even WiFi connection.
The beach can be divided into two sections. The first half, from Port d'Alcúdia to Ciudad Blanca, is where most of the facilities and services are located. Further up the Bay of Alcúdia, as you head towards Playa de Muro, it is easier to find quieter spots.
The beach can get busy in the summer months as the purpose built resort behind the beach fills up with holidaymakers. Lifeguards are on duty during the busier periods. No pets are allowed on the beach.
Water Safety & Clarity
This beach's popularity with families is clearly because of the safe shallow waters that make it ideal for children to play in. The clear turquoise sea is a delight to swim in (you may have to walk some distance for deeper water), or to watch from the comfort of your sun lounger.
You have 7 km of white sand 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.
A number of boat trips start from here, these range from gentle half-day cruises to full-on diving expeditions. There are also companies renting pedalos, banana boats, ringos and other fun activities on the beach, as well as diving centres nearby.

(Solid posted and made of reeds). Water and very clean, in the areas we went, the beach was very gently sloping. Even though there were water sports available, the noise wasn't at all intrusive." - Trip Advisor
