Alcudia on Majorca’s north coast is one of the island’s biggest and most popular resorts. Developed around a fishing port, it has grown into a major family holiday destination, courtesy of the island’s largest stretch of beach.
Brimming with history and culture, relics of the Greeks and Romans who previously settled there can be found. The 14th century old town, with Roman ruins, a quaint harbour and narrow shop filled streets, is ideal for a beach holiday in a Spanish town steeped in character.
Holidays in Alcudia centre around the beach, with the 12 kilometres of golden sand having an abundance of watersports, including windsurfing and parasailing. A climb up the steep hill, Sa Talaia d'Alcudia, offers magnificent views of the bay and the surrounding countryside.
Great bars and restaurants are found in Alcudia, particularly at the harbour port, with many offering live music and entertainment too. The resort has a lively nightlife with clubs catering to those who wish to dance the night away.
Local culture can be experienced at the traditional street markets every Sunday and Thursday, bringing an even more vibrant and colourful atmosphere to this already charming resort.
