Alcudia

1 resort, 2 parts

Set on Majorca’s north-east coast, Alcudia comes as a 2-parter. Inland there’s a historic old town, where shops and cafés fill the streets behind the city walls. And then there’s the coast. Here, the long stretch comes with hotels, bars and a marina backed by restaurants – plus 7 kilometres of sand.

Blue Flag sands

Alcudia’s beach unravels from the marina through to a quieter stretch at Playa de Muro – part of a nature reserve – and onto the resort of Ca’n Picafort. The water is clear and calm, so it’s popular with snorkellers. Nearest to town, there’s a really good line-up of watersports and plenty of seafront bars and cafés.

Historic old town

A dramatic way to start a tour of Alcudia’s old town is through one of the 2 gates built after the conquest of the island by King Jaime I of Spain. Once inside the 14th-century walls, narrow cobbled streets lead to bustling squares filled with pavement cafés and boutiques. Also worth a look here is the parish church of Sant Jaume, with its Medieval belfry and rose window.

Daytrips to S’Albufera Nature Reserve

Only 20 minutes’ away by bus is Parc Natural de S’Albufera, a huge nature reserve made up of sand dunes, lagoons, paths and trails. Walks here take you up close to marsh frogs, tamarisk trees and the beautifully scented sea daffodil. And there are plenty of observation platforms and hides to bring you brilliant views of birds like the moustached warbler and purple heron.
