On the north coast of Mallorca lies the Bay of Alcudia, a gorgeous coastline comprising of turquoise shallow waters and long, soft golden sandy beaches. It is therefore not much of a surprise to find Majorca's biggest beach resort here. From Port d'Alcudia, in the west, to Can Picafort 10 km down the coast, you will find a strip of apartment blocks and resort style hotels that offer everything from budget self-catering to luxurious 5-star accommodation.
As the name Port d'Alcudia or Puerto Alcudia suggests, this was once just a port serving the inland town of Alcudia. The area around the old fishing harbour is now the most attractive, an upmarket marina where fishing boats sit along luxury leisure yachts. From here, there is a pedestrianised promenade that runs along the coastline. On this promenade and within the streets behind, you will find a good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants. Apartments and hotels can be found from the shoreline backwards, a very built up area. Although it is prettier down by the waterfront, there is a canal system that leads to an inland lake, creating a system of waterways between the buildings adding a level of charm to this area.
Being a tourist resort, most of the hotels, restaurants and bars are only open in the summer months between April and October. If you are looking for a more cultural experience, head to the ancient town of Alcudia a few kilometres inland - it is a wonderfully restored Medieval town with city walls and Roman ruins which boasts one of the best markets in Mallorca.
