Playa de Muro Beach, North Mallorca

Playa de Muro is a beautiful six kilometres long Blue Flag, white sandy beach in the north of Mallorca. It's generally quieter than neighbouring Alcudia beach because of its out of town location.

One of the longest beaches in the Balearic Islands, Playa de Muro is divided into four different sectors. All of them boast calm and clear, shallow turquoise waters and fine golden sand, making it ideal for families. All along the beach, there are hotels, restaurants, bars, sun loungers and parasols available for hire. Toilets, showers, disabled access and lifeguards on duty complete the wide range of services and facilities here. 

The westernmost sector is unimaginatively called Playa de Muro Sector I. It's located only 3 kilometres from Port d'Alcudia and almost joined with the town's own beach. A whole host of hotels and restaurants surround this sandy stretch.

The next sector officially starts at the S'Oberta canal which runs through S'Albufera Natural Park. This part of the beach is known as Playa de Muro Sector II or Es Braç. There are still resort hotels at the rear of the beach and all the facilities as above, but it's slightly less busy.

As the facilities begin to disappear and more natural surroundings are apparent, the beach becomes known as Es Comu. You'll find 1.5 km of unspoilt beach here, with sand dunes, pine trees and juniper bushes to the rear. Access is a bit trickier as you need to walk from either side of the beach: from Casetes des Capellans, about 1 km from Can Picafort, and by Es Braç. Parking is available at both ends. This stretch of Playa de Muro is included within the S'Albufera Natural Park.

As you head closer to Can Picafort, the beach starts to become busier and is known as Es Capellans. It runs for about 400 metres and you are back in tourist land with all the facilities that you could need. Unlike the other three sections of the beach, Es Capellans does not have a Blue Flag award as yet.

Setting & Location

The beach is divided up into four sectors. To the west (closest to Alcudia), the beach has good facilities and is backed by resort hotels and holiday apartments.

Water Safety & Clarity

The beach leads down a gentle incline to the clear and shallow blue sea so it's shallow enough for kids to play safely. However, if the wind is up, note that Playa de Muro is less sheltered than the beach at Alcudia and you may experience slightly bigger waves.

Beach Quality

This huge swathe of sandy beach goes on for miles but is not that deep at an average of 25 metres. The sand is fine and soft.

Bars & Beachclubs

There is a great selection of beach clubs dotted along Playa de Muro's beachfront offering a stunning setting for drinks or a spot of lunch.

Watersports

This part of Mallorca is popular for sailing and other watersports because of the large bay and favourable winds. Water-skiing, jet ski and paragliding can all be done here. Several scuba diving companies also pick up clients from here.
