Puerto Alcudia, Mallorca

The most popular place in Mallorca for family beach holidays

Share

Puerto Alcudia, Mallorca

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 restaurantsApartments 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.

Beaches in Port d'Alcudia

Playa de Alcudia is the longest stretch of beach in Mallorca thanks to its 7km of soft, golden sand. In the summer, you will find row upon row of sun loungers and parasols full of tourists. The stretch of beach closest to the port is known as Ciudad Blanca (White City in English) which is where you will find a full range of facilities including beach bars, restaurants, watersports, public toilets and showers. Some way down the coast, it gets quieter and then changes from being Alcudia Beach to Playa de Muro. Here the beach narrows somewhat and, without as many facilities, it has a more relaxed vibe. Continuing in this direction, you will reach the calmer holiday resort of Can Picafort.

Things to Do in Port d'Alcudia

The town is popular with families because of all the facilities that the resort has developed - water parks, go-karts, tourist trains and crazy golf are all here for you. The beach is really fabulous, with clear and safe waters for children to bathe in, and soft golden white sand to play in. The further east along the beach you go, the quieter it becomes.

Nightlife in Port d'Alcudia

Puerto Alcudia is the main place to go for a night out in the north west of Mallorca. The area around the marina is well served by a variety of bars and cafes, ranging from Irish themed pubs to smarter brasserie style cafes. There are other clutches of bars around the bay - music and karaoke bars are always popular. A complex of bars and clubs can be found on Avinguda del Tucan, and one of Mallorca's biggest nightclubs can be found on the same street - Menta Discoteca.

Hotels in Port d'Alcudia

There is certainly plenty of hotel choice for holidaymakers coming to Alcudia. The coast is ringed by hotel and apartment blocks ranging from budget options that sit one or two blocks back from the beach, to all-inclusive and four & five star hotels on the beach itself.

For a more authentic Mallorcan experience, try looking for accommodation in the town of Alcudia or Pollenca. The properties here are further from the beach but are generally more charming.
